Box Wrapping

F6 Box Wrapper – Rigid Lid & Base Boxes

F6 Box Wrapper – Rigid Lid & Base Boxes

This electro-pneumatic box wrapping machine represents the most innovative choice for finishing of high quality boxes for small and medium runs. The pre-formed box with the glued sheet has to be placed manually by the operator on to the suction head with the tool/mould already in place. A tool/mould is required for every box size, one for the lid and one for the base. The operator then presses the foot pedal to operate the wrapping process. The vacuum operated system keeps the product in position throughout the complete folding and pressing cycle. When folding is completed, the suction head releases the finished box ready for manual removal or alternatively ejected onto conveyor belt etc. Material must have hot animal glue application or cold vegan glue heated to 30 degrees to ensure efficient, clean production. This model requires the operator to set the machine manually by winding in the pressing plates, installing the tucking blades and adjusting the sequence of operation on the touch screen. The F6 is also able to wrap boxes with slanted sides, customised pressing plates etc will need to be manufactured to suit the slant angle. An F6XL version is also available for large boxes and can be modified to suit smaller boxes.

Speed, pressure and dwell time are all adjustable to suit a wide range of materials ensuring a quality finish.

Two Machines Required, Depending On Run Length.

Machine 1: Pre-formed boxes are placed onto the pre-glued sheet and then held on the machine with a suction tool. The machine then wraps the material around the slip case / box automatically.

Machine 2 Option: For wrapping inside the slip case / box, this can either be done by hand (short runs), or the second machine can be deployed to finish the box, by tucking in the final part using a different tool.

The vacuum suction tooling also enables the forming of the slip case / box from a die / grooved board. The board should be placed on the glued sheet, and suction holds the board on the tool and then let the machine complete the process – automatically!
