When your automated packaging line demands the fastest possible speeds in case forming, the Wayne Automation VCE Case Erector is the equipment for the job. This machine runs RSC, HSC, and AFM carton styles at speeds up to 75 cases per minute. Cases are bottom sealed upright and discharged vertically from the machine.
Speed, reliability, quality.
Case erecting speed is nothing without reliability and quality. That’s why the VCE includes a number of features to ensure cases are erected and glued consistently and correctly regardless of the operating speed.
This case erector machine is designed to ensure reliably formed boxes even when using long cases or weak walled cases from lower grade corrugated. Using inside and outside compression mandrels, cases are repeatedly glued securely and squarely.
All of the machine functions are controlled through state-of-the-art Allen-Bradley microelectronics and communicated to the operator through a large color touch screen interface.
Fast in operation, fast in changeover.
Speed is also about production changeover. All adjustments are made quickly and without tools. Hand wheels and counters ensure quick, repeatable production setups. Compression mandrels are swapped with a simple pull pin. Available fully motorized adjustments allow one-touch selection of pre-programmed products from the HMI to automatically perform job changeovers.
Maintenance, just one more area where this machine is fast.
The VCE incorporates thoughtful design features that virtually eliminate costly and time-consuming downtime. Our driveline has automatic shock absorbing tensioners to increase component life many times over typical implementations. Lubrication points are centralized outside of the machine and are available with fully automatic lubricators. Through our available Total Planned Maintenance (TPM) upgrades, daily, weekly, and monthly maintenance task are displayed on the HMI with color photos directing the task.
Safety, your concern is our focus.
Standard on the VCE are Lexan doors equipped with Allen Bradley anti-intrusion switches. A rotary brake locks machine motion to ensure safe access during maintenance and changeover operations. Remote emergency and cycle stop stations are located around the machine and the status is displayed on the main operator panel.
