Lid Forming and Applying Machines

Lantech lid forming and placing machines LF-1000 and LF-2000
 

The mechanically operated Lantech lid forming and placing machines are available in two versions.
The LF-1000 is the compact two-station lid forming/placing machine capable of handling E or B flute blanks.
The lid is formed on a forming head where the flaps are glued. The formed lid is positioned on the tray case by means of special shoe-horn type fingers.
The LF-2000 is the high speed four-station lid forming/placing machine capable of handling E or B flute blanks as well as solid board blanks.
The lid is placed loose on the filled tray case and then usually strapped with plastic bands. When the lid needs to be glued to the tray case, then we recommend the Lid Application machine LA-1000.

Mode of Operation

From a low level walk-in type magazine a blank is taken with vacuum and placed in position for a mechanical pusher to move the blank to the forming tool.
During the transfer of the lid blank a very accurate timing of the hot melt glue application is achieved on the two short flaps of the lid blank. In the meantime, a bead of hot melt glue is applied along the top of the two long sides of the tray / case.
After reaching the lid application position the blank will be picked up and when the filled tray is in the right position, the lid blank will with great precision move downwards to the top of the filled tray. In that position the 4 flaps will be folded in (90 degrees) against the filled tray. The folding plates will remain in position briefly to allow for the glue to bond the lid to the tray.
The folding unit will retract to its starting position and tray / case with glued lid will exit the machine via the roller conveyor.
