Eagle Packaging Machinery's new Boxxer T-18 automatic case erector and bottom tape sealer is claimed to be a highly affordable and compact erector. According to the company, the Boxxer T-18 can run both regular-slotted and half-slotted style boxes and will erect and tape up to 18 boxes per minute.
As a single operator machine, the Boxxer T-18 is mobile and easy to move. Capable of producing a wide range of boxes, size changeover is quick with no part changes required. The unit offers a broad range of features including an Omron PLC, color touch screen, high capacity blank hopper, and easy access panels with safety switches. The unit is solidly built with a welded steel frame construction, includes casters for easy mobility, and is available for left or right hand operation.
The Boxxer T-18 transfers a blank from the supply hopper to the erecting station where the blank is opened, the minor flaps are folded and then the major flaps. The erected case is moved through the tape cartridge where a 2" or 3" tape is applied and the case is now ready to be filled.
