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 FSLF-2X is designed to erect large, turnover wall locking style corrugated trays that may otherwise need to be hand erected. Quick-change tooling sets allows for multiple tray sizes to be run on the same machine.
The FSLF-2X features skid-style blank loading (via lift truck) to reduce any operator handling of large, heavy corrugated material. Servo forming axis allows 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.
Servo tooling adjustment is available as an option for “recipe” driven changeovers.
Allen Bradley PLC control, operator touch screen, and rugged frame design make this a highly durable machine platform to reduce labor and corrugated usage.
