The Switchback GF42S-3 tray forming machine is a rugged, high-speed, servo-controlled shuttle style tray and carton former. With cycle rates up to 45 cartons per minute, the Switchback GF42S-3 can handle the most challenging applications.
Dual heads are available, and quick-change tooling sets allow for multiple tray sizes to be run on the same machine. The Switchback GF42S-3 also features controlled, auto-advance carton magazines and servo tray shuttle axis for high-speed, precise glue dispensing.
OEM glue system (Nordson, ITW, etc.), and servo forming axis are standard to allow rapid, but gentle plunge-forming of carton blanks. What’s more, Allen Bradley PLC control, operator touch screen, and rugged frame design make this a highly durable platform to reduce labour and board usage.
With the ability to vary the cycle of the servo forming head, we can customize the forming of each carton style to meet the unique forming aspects of any application.
