This station includes a transfer belt that moves the jamb profiles to a belt roller table that shifts the products by 90° to the next tilted conveyor.
This conveyor has been designed with an upward angle so as to discharge the items at a suitable height to be placed inside the box by the operator. At the end of the tilted conveyor there is an tilted belt that lowers itself down toward the operator to discharge the items at an operator-friendly height and coupling operations can be handled smoothly.
Custom-made boxes are produced by an EVO packaging machine. At the exit of the machine there is a motorized conveyor that conveys the opened boxes towards the coupling station supervised by the operator.
Coupling and Forming Station
The coupling station is supervised by an operator who feeds the open box arriving from the packaging machine into a forming tool to form the tray. The sides of the box are formed and erected manually and the flaps are fitted on the inside of the box since, it is a self-assembling box format F428, and therefore no glue is needed for closing.
Then the operator picks up the profiles from the tilted conveyor and puts them into the box and sends the box to the next longitudinal closing station.
Longitudinal Closing Station
In this station the box is automatically closed lengthwise with Hotmelt glue.
At the outfeed of the longitudinal closing station, there is a roller/belt conveyor to transfer the package by 90° towards the product discharge conveyor.
