The 10 Advantages

1. Up to 12'000 trays per hour and stream
This highly productive machine can convert blanks with up to 12'000 strokes per hour and stream.

2. Modularly retrofittable machine
Even if the machine is originally equipped for one-stream operation only, further streams can be added later at any time. The HTF can be retrofitted with further options such as a flanging station or plasma nozzles for the pre-treatment of coated gluing flaps.

3. High production security at the in-feed units
The pneumatically controlled in-feed of the blanks guarantees highest reliability and production security.

4. A selection of gluing systems
Whether a 2-/4-/6- or 8-point gluing is required, the HTF offers users a complete choice of gluing systems to suit different applications. The machine can be equipped with a unit for cold gluing by soft pads, a cold gluing unit with spray nozzles or a hot-melt adhesive unit with spray nozzles.

5. Intelligent movement of forming dies
Various parameters such as the start, end, length and speed of the forming stroke can be selected to guarantee optional production security. For an optimum folding procedure of hamburger clamshells a pair of twin swords is integrated in the movement.

6. User-friendliness
The swing away delivery allows easy access and a quick and comfortable setup of the forming stations. The horizontal delivery of the trays at optimal working height simplifies the removal of the finished cartons during production.

7. Short setup times
For all tray types a fix forming station is available with the corresponding forming dies. In just a few steps, these fix forming stations can be fitted to the machine, which dramatically reduces the makeready times. All fix forming stations are set, tested and adjusted upfront at supplier site.
