Hot glue box forming machine

Do you want automatic JIT folding and sealing of boxes?

How does this machine work?

The operator stacks the blank cardboard boxes on a trolley. The trolley is inserted into the folder gluer.

The suction cups pick one blank from the stack. The horizontal trolley moves the box blank over the forming die. During this movement, hot-melt glue is applied to the blank.

A punch presses the blank through the forming die. The walls and flaps of the box are brought to shape in this step. The glue is pressed between the cardboard surfaces and the cardboard box is made.

This machine is provided with two alternating magazines for cardboard blanks.
This enables uninterrupted operation. The machine stops for about 20 seconds when an empty trolley is removed.

The forming dies and punches are engineered and made specifically for the box type and size. The machine’s parameters can be stored for each box type processed.

Before running in automatic mode, the gluer verifies that the loaded blanks match the preset glueing parameters and the installed forming die and punch.
If something is wrong, the machine will not run. This prevents potential errors by the operator.
