Max Speed Case Erector and Sealer

The A-B-C 450 case erector is the ultimate high-speed hot melt case erector with speeds up to 50 cpm. A production-proven design is built with top-quality features deliver peak production on your packaging line. This workhorse machine has a heavy steel frame with operation powered by a 3hp motor drive.

Machine Features

Large capacity, easy load case magazine
Features to handle poor corrugated and uneven case stacks
Designed for real world production to accommodate off-spec corrugated
Servo-powered sealing ram ensures square, well sealed cases


Case Erector with Intelligent Control Ensures Precise Operation: Intelligent machine control takes PLC logic one step further to provide total control of operation. Closed loop position feedback ensures precise timing of each operating sequence through non-contact sensors. The full color operator panel shows real-time operating data and allows independent operation of all functions, diagnostics, and changeover settings.

Large Capacity, Easy Load Case Erecting Magazine: The self-indexing case magazine assures a continuous case supply–as one stack is used, the next moves into position maximizing time between refills. The ergonomic, low-level magazine allows easy refill without lifting and raising cases.

Case Feed Designed for Reliable Transfer of Every Case: This case erector has self-adjusting, spring-loaded grippers that assure proper case feed from uneven stacks of warped or band-marked cases. Their unique "floating" design allows them to operate independently to grip each case firmly and provide a consistent and reliable case feed. Cases feed into position at the opening station.

Reliable Case Erecting Mechanism: Production-proven since 1990, A-B-C's cam-operated vacuum pullback case opener design is superior in running less-than-perfect corrugated. This method utilizes dual vacuum grippers- lower grippers provide solid compression to hold the case firmly while the upper grippers pull the case open. The case flaps are lifted to a slightly over-opened position to ensure smooth inner flap folding.

Servo-Powered Sealing Ram Forms Square Cases: As each case travels through the sealing station, the servo motor-powered sealing ram firmly and reliably compresses the flaps to ensure a secure seal. Cases do not stop. The sealing ram moves with the case to ensure a secure seal, then cycles back to enter the next case as it approaches. The ram stroke is precisely controlled by the servo motor, ensuring optimum precision during high speed production runs for high speed case erecting.

Quick Changeover: All settings for every case size are accessed at the operator panel and rapid adjust cranks and slides with locking handles are used for adjustments to ensure quick and easy case changes.
