ESS’s Bergami Model K 15 automatic horizontal case packer has a true “balcony” design and rear drive that meet cGMP standards and allow complete access for product changeover, inspection and maintenance. Controlled via an Allen Bradley PLC with PanelView HMI, the case packer loads cartons, bundles, pouches and squeezable tubes into corrugated cases at speeds up to 18 cases/min. A horizontal case magazine provides loading of case blanks; a double-armed system ensures accurate opening and squaring of the case during product loading. Compact in size, the unit handles a range of product and case dimensions. Case closure options include hot-melt gluing and tape.
