Vertical tray former - case forming and closing machine

Our vertical tray forming and closing machine is the ideal solution for casing small-medium sized products. Thanks to the vast range of solutions available, various types of end results can be obtained. It works with a flat blank, which is picked individually using suction cups from storage where the blanks are horizontally positioned; conveyor belts transfer the blank up to the centring station where a vertical press forms the case.
Case forming takes place using an upper male forming unit and a lower female forming unit. Then, the glue is distributed to form the corners, intervening on the mechanical lifts that fold the corner flap 90°.
The bottom of the case at this point is ready to pass to the next filling stations, which can be carried out by hand by an operator or automatically using the external systems or systems provided by DM PACK (robot, pick & place etc..) and fastening and closure of the upper flaps using tuck-in or hot glue application. There is a dedicated male/female unit for each format.

Case formation using reliable and precise move ment of the vertical press
Vast range of solutions available: tray formation only, case formation and closure with manual filling, case formation and closure with automatic filling. Automatic filling, according to design specifications, can be actively implemented thanks to integration of robotic or pick & place systems designed by us, or passively by multi-head fillers or other external systems. Alternatively, it can be carried out manually by one or more operators.
