Variocart carton erector.

For handling different carton blanks, the right solution can always be found from the Variocart range. The Variocart C40 and C50 handles handles pre-glued blanks made of plain or corrugated cardboard. The Variocart C40, featuring state-of-the-art drive technology, can produce up to 40 cartons a minute in intermittent mode. The pre-glued carton blanks--American boxes--are inserted vertically into the magazine. Vacuum grippers unfold the blank, and then the side flaps are folded in. Hotmelt is applied while the carton is being conveyed to the closing station, where the base is glued together. With a speed of up to 50 cpm, and for certain blank sizes up to 75 cpm, the Variocart C50 rounds off the top end of the Variocart C family. In the C--series, an enormous spectrum of carton qualities can be used, like B, C and E flutes. These machines can also handle folding cartons with glued-in partitions, cartons with extra-long cross-flaps, or half-height and display cartons. The Variocart C40 and C50 machines can be changed over for a different product with just a few manual adjustments; no tools are required for this. The Variocart CM40 is used for fiat-laying, slotted-type carton blanks. Since these carton blanks have not been glued in the factory, cost advantages can be achieved in procurement, and storage of the blanks is simplified. This enables numerous different carton formats, rectangular or octagonal, for example, to be created. Depending on the blank sizes involved, speeds of up to 40 pcm can be achieved. Each individual model scores in terms of functional design, user-friendliness, and versatility in terms of feed and change-over options.
