1 – Carton blanks are loaded into the magazine which feeds them toward the pickup frame via conveyor.
2 – A special separator releases the first sheet blank to the pickup frame.
3 – To ensure right-angled case erecting, eight vacuum-powered suction cups grip the blank on two sides, automatically forming the case shape.
4 – Once held square, the bottom flaps are folded before the carton is moved, locking the corners at 90 degrees and ensuring rigidity.
5 – Cases are then pushed toward a tape sealer which seals the bottom of the case before the erected carton is dispensed.
