The KSCT/30-70 Carton and Case Turner provides configurable orientation on a case size by case size basis at a rate of 30 CPM. Case sizes range from 52 to 127 cubic inches. In specific applications, we have achieved as much as 70 CPM with 9” cartons.
A uniquely engineered design, this product was developed in its first application to orient 13 case sizes on the same line. Due to the incorporation of a retractable star-wheel, the KSCT/30-70 can convey varying carton or case sizes on the same line without need of changeovers.
When the star-wheel is extended, it orients the case/carton using pre-programmed recipe instructions. When retracted (below the conveyor rollers), cases not in need of turning pass over the retracted star-wheel, hence their current orientation is preserved. Carton and case size selection is done on the HMI.
