Eagle Packaging Machinery LLC, a U.S. manufacturer of tray forming, case erecting, case packing, and palletizing equipment has released its new Boxxer T-18 automatic case erector and bottom tape sealer that it calls the most affordable and compact erector available on the market today.
A single operator machine, the Boxxer T-18 can run both regular-slotted and half-slotted style boxes and will erect and tape up to 18 boxes per minute.
The Boxxer T-18 transfers a blank from the supply hopper to the erecting station where the blank is opened, the minor flaps are folded and then the major flaps. The erected case is moved through the tape cartridge where a two or three-inch tape is applied and the case is now ready to be filled.
Capable of producing a wide range of boxes, size changeover is quick with no part changes required.
The unit offers a broad range of features including an Omron PLC (programmable logic controller), color touch screen, high capacity blank hopper, and easy access panels with safety switches.
The Boxxer T-18 is solidly built with a welded steel frame construction, includes casters for easy mobility, and is available for left or right hand operation.
