Automatic Side Load Case Packer

The machine is side loading, modular, compact and flexible packer, designed for medium/high per minute case production, all in a single monoblock The machine is Konek Technology’s standardized sideload case packer for packaging products into regular slotted cases (RSC), also known as American cases. In particular, its essential aspects include compact design, high accessibility, simple size change-over maximum reliability, and it is the ideal solution in case of space restrictions at the end of the line.

Side load case packers are designed to load products into an open case on its side. This cost-effective machine makes use of a combination of servo and air cylinder motion control to erect, load, and seal your product in one compact system. Consisting of three separated modules: product feeding and collation, carton erection and carton closure, this machine guarantees a total control and easy cleaning. At first, the packs reach the stacking unit where each row is stacked into a holding plate assembly. Working with an in-feed system, the products are collated in the correct pack configuration and then loaded horizontally into the open case lying on its side. Product infeed can collect a wide range of product sizes and thanks to a high speed stacker they can be grouped in multi-tier bundles. After the required number of rows have been stacked, the collation would be pushed into the open case, which is opened and held in place by vacuum suction cups and guides with the rear minor flap closed. After its filling, the conveyor with flights brings the box to the sealing area. The shipping cases are then automatically closed on both sides. While a filled shipping carton is being transported to the closing unit, a new, empty case is simultaneously provided. The filled carton is pushed out of the machine. Another box is positioned automatically and the cycle is repeated. The system of carton erection and product introduction into the carton allows for higher speed of packaging and guarantees higher stability of the products. With a modern design and a sturdy structure, the machine was projected to work with servo-motors to ensure precise moves. Stainless steel is utilized in all areas where products contact the machine, to promote a clean product environment and ensure smooth transfer of products with coated graphics or overwrap.

Konek Technology case packers are designed with safety, durability, productivity and efficiency as the top design criteria. The machine has been designed for the market demands that are: overall decrease, accessibility, format change simplicity and maximum reliability. Change-over is very fast thanks to handles on metric rods or handwheels with digital readouts installed on all parts to be moved.

The side-load case packer is suitable for packaging of cartons, bundles, sachets, bags and flow-packs inside corrugated shipper (RSC). Automatic case packer is used in packing products in food, medicine, daily chemicals and electronics industry.
