Astro Packaging Liberty Series Bottom Load Case Packer
Astro Packaging’s Liberty Series™ Bottom Load Case Packer is built with a unique design where compactness and flexibility are a concern. The bottom load case packer machine is a good fit when your product must be kept upright when case packed and drop packing is not an option. The Liberty Series bottom load case packer can run up to a maximum speed of 15 cases per minute.
The operation of the Liberty Series bottom load case packer is simple. A knock down flat case is pulled off the case hopper via vacuum, and opened by an opposed vacuum cup arm thus pulling the case open and holding it in place over the load station. Product is accumulated into its proper pack patter and then pushed into the waiting empty case into the bottom of the case. The case bottom flaps are closed and filled case is moved to the case sealer. The case is pushed into the integrated case sealer where remaining flaps are closed and sealed by either pressure sensitive tape or hot melt glue. Due to the nature of the Liberty Series bottom load case packer's design, case discharge is usually higher than normal line heights. We can remedy this by using the optional case “lowerator” which will lower the case down to a height that matches your production line using a minimal amount of floor space.
