Mondo & Scaglione, of Canelli Italy, an established global supplier of 'End of Line' or 'Dry Line' machinery components to the Wine Industry, have recently released a monoblock for erecting and closing bag-in-box cases, typically used for wine casks.
The machine has been designed to enable the erection of a BAG-IN-BOX case, which has short lower flaps, then for the box to be filled and finally closed with hot melt glue. The machine can handle 2 and 3L BAG-IN-BOX cases at a rate of 20/min, and 5 and 10 litre cases at 13/min.
The case magazine is adjustable to cater for different sizes with a pitch to pitch case advancement, electro-pneumatically controlled according to the case thickness. The magazine contains two rows for cases for the 2 and 3L cases and a row of cases for the 5 and 10L cases.
The machine is equipped with a double motorised conveyor, a system to keep the case compressed inside the magazine.
