Tray & Carton Formers
Switchback Group offers its Trayforming and Closing equipment, with over 35 years in the packaging industry. We specialize in the conceptual development, design, and manufacture of high quality equipment including trayformers, tray closers, flap closers, and rotary carton openers.
The FSGF-2X is designed to erect 4-corner glue style corrugated trays with an ability to form at up to 20 trays per minute. Quick-change tooling sets allows for multiple tray sizes to be run on the same machine.
The FSGF-2X features ergonomic tray magazine loading, servo tray shuttle axis for precise glue dispensing, OEM glue system (Nordson, ITW, etc.), and servo forming axis to allow rapid, but gentle plunge-forming of heavy corrugated material. With the ability to momentarily pause the servo axis at the corrugated blank face, we reduce the kinetic energy associated with more conventional, mechanical formers.
Allen Bradley PLC control, operator touch screen, and rugged frame design make this a highly durable machine platform to reduce labor and corrugated usage.
Large blank size capability, with approximate 40” x 40” corrugated blank sizes.
