Packaging machinery manufacturer Standard-Knapp has announced the launch of its new case sealer, which is suitable for sealing primed flap and re-shipper cases (RSC).
The design of the new Model 199 permits consistent sealing of all incoming cases, whether close-coupled case packer discharge or when installed as a stand-alone machine.
According to the US-based company, the sealer features quick complete changeover, and offers speeds of up to 50 cases per minute.
Model 199 uses a one-hose, four-gun, hot melt glue system, and glues and folds the top flaps into place.
Exact timing and a consistent glue pattern is ensured by an on demand servo-controlled flap tucker.
For slower speeds, a pneumatically controlled flap tucker is available.
Model 199 ensures gluing and virtually no-drip operation with one hose and four low-cavity glue guns.
In a bid to minimise downtime, the case sealer has been designed with fewer moving parts, and the machine's low maintenance design features a rust-proof stainless-steel frame.
A durable compression section uses standard friction belt to handle lightweight cases and does away with the need for side belts.
Designed for ease of operations and maintenance, Model 199 enables one operator to complete changeover in less time without the requirement of tools or change parts.
To eliminate guesswork, each changeover point is numbered and corresponding settings will be documented on a chart provided with the machine.
