Labor saving packer can replace hand packing and increase production
May 11, 2016
Packagers looking to automate their hand packing lines have a simple, cost-effective and reliable alternative with A-B-C’s Model 19 packer. This packer provides smooth and gentle product handling that maintains product integrity as it automatically indexes and accumulates each product load before sliding it through stainless steel loading funnels into the shipping case.
Only one operator is needed to open cases and place them on the case packing funnel, significantly reducing labor and associated costs. This compact machine occupies only 75 square feet of floor space including infeed and takeaway conveyors. It can run speeds to 15 cases per minute depending on operator dexterity, the product and the pack arrangement.
The Model 19 is packed with standard features including powered infeed with product sensors, no case-no load and no product-no load protection, full guarding with see-through panels, easy access operator controls, and product takeaway conveyor. It packs cartons, shrinkwrapped multipacks, rigid and semi-rigid containers into RSC, HSC and display cases and has features to ensure quick changeover.
