The BOX-E is the first machine with a small footprint that folds and glues various sizes of plain cardboard into toploaded boxes. What is new? This machine is adjustable and can therefore perfectly process a high mix and low volume of boxes. The handling of low quantities and various shapes and sizes is a trend in the life science industry.
Our machine has an automated drawer. This drawer holds the mould for positioning the plain cardboard. When this drawer moves into the machine, hot melt glue is automatically applied onto the folding flaps at the exact right position. When the drawer is completely in, the cardboard is accurately placed above a folding mould. A vertical pusher pushes the plain carton through the mould, giving it its accurate shape by folding it in the right sequence.
The pusher tool, the folding tool and the drawer tool are fast exchangeable moulds and can be easily positioned and fixed. No specialist tools are required to prepare the moulds for the correct box sizes. The exchangeable parts are Poka Yoke designed. For accurate positioning, the hot melt glue applicators are fitted to spindles with numeric indicators.
The box erector can be expanded with a conveyor belt. This guarantees a constant output of folded and glued boxes. The capacity of the BOX-E increases by 15 %. It creates the possibility to work with two operators, one for the infeed of the cartons and one for handling the folded boxes. On demand we can adapt the machine to your wishes, for instance an automated infeed of cartons or automated folding and gluing of partitions in the boxes.
Optionally, it is possible to implement a barcode or DataMatrix check. Meet the global serialization requirements in time! Let GTE-engineering help you. We will implement the necessary serialization techniques for you.
At the BOX-E we can deliver, if desired, a tooling cart. The box erector has fast exchangeable moulds. To prevent damage, it is essential that these moulds are properly stored in a well-organized storage system. Therefor we have developed a tailor-made tooling cart.
