Model 70 partition opener/inserter inserts chipboard partitions into cases prior to packing, providing enhanced protection for bottles with spray nozzles. This machine has a dual servo powered partition handling device that drives the partition indexing/opening and inserting, blending these two independent steps into one harmonious action that ensures gentle handling for smooth opening, precise placement and efficient case packing. Lateral stabilizers square the partition after opening to “lock” the partition’s interlocking panels and ensure smooth insertion into the waiting case or tray. A new video on A-B-C’s website shows the Model 70 partition opener/inserter in operation.
Changeover time is dramatically reduced up to 70% due to the new design that requires no tools or change parts for a complete range of partitions. All parameters are stored for immediate recall at the control console, and position indicators eliminate guesswork in adjusting to new settings. The operator just follows the step-by-step instructions to set the new parameters, and the machine is ready for return to production. To run new partitions, the operator simply inputs the parameters at the touchscreen display then stores the data for future changeovers.
The unit’s compact size makes it an easy fit on most plant production floors. The Model 70 is a good choice for packagers in the wine, spirits, beer, food and chemical industries, and any company packing glass or fragile products into a case requiring a chipboard partition.
