Bliss Former for Bag-in-Box style cases, such as for institutional size sauce boxes.

Pearson’s 2-Piece Bliss Former is ideally suited for liquid bag-in-box applications. Sturdy, double-layer bottom boxes provide high stacking strength and reduce the risk of product damage commonly caused by internal corrugate flanges. With speeds up to 30 CPM, combined with its rugged construction, the BF30-2PB is field-proven for 24/7 applications.

Dual gravity fed magazines ensure that each case component is accurately presented for pick off. To establish consistent glue compression and case squareness, the active forming section impacts the glue lines as opposed to rubbing over it.

For high-speed operations, an optional high-capacity Automatic Stack Transfer System is available. Advanced features such as high-visibility machine status lighting, non-contact interlocks, CAT-3 Safety Circuits and an easily accessible grace port are standard on the machine.

Standard Features

Gravity fed magazine ensures that each blank is in proper position for picking without having to worry about proper angles and placement of boards.

The Powered end-panel magazine with following paddle ensures that each end-panel is accurately presented for pick off by controlling the pressure between the end-panels and the restraining clip.

The active forming section ensures consistent glue compression and square cases by impacting the glue lines as opposed to smearing them.

Vertical case forming eliminates having to reposition the orientation of the box for introduction onto the customer’s conveyor resulting in a smaller footprint of the machine.

Changeovers are supported by the industry’s most advanced HMI with an uncluttered design, intuitive navigation, interactive changeover and fault-recovery guides, live sensor maps, and advanced maintenance features. Scales, pointers and quick release handles ensure additional tools are not necessary. A trained technician can complete a changeover in under 45min.

Eliminates misalignment of guard door interlocks which prevents problems common to keyed interlocks.

A standard four-light LED beacon provides high-visibility of machine status.

Grace ports provide convenient communication access and 110V convenience outlet at the outside of the machine’s electrical cabinet.

A remote operator station enables convenient machine control on both sides of the conveyor.

Allows Pearson’s support team on-demand access to the equipment’s PLC and HMI through a secure VPN connection via an eWON router (ISECOM STAR and ISO27001 certified) to support emergency troubleshooting and reduce on-site visits.

Popular Upgrade Options

Air-Conditioner

Air conditioning provides cooling when ambient temperature becomes too hot or the contents of the electrical enclosure generate heat that risk failure to components.

Custom Case Range

This option allows cases outside of the machines standard capabilities to be run. Specific adjustments require engineering review to determine limitations and potential performance trade-offs such as machine speed or larger machine footprint.

High Capacity Stack Transfer System

The extended feed system replenishes the primary material hoppers. As it nears depletion, the conveyor is activated and a stack of die cut corrugate is deposited into the primary hopper. Body wrap stack transfer systems can double or triple overall material capacity, while H-divider stack transfer magazines can more than quadruple the standard machine capacity.

High-Capacity Adhesive Feeder

Adhesive fill systems monitor and maintain proper adhesive levels in hot melt glue system tanks. The sealed melter and auto-feed systems relieve machine operators from continuously refilling the tank.

Low Temperature Environment

Electrical enclosures located in cold and humid environments maintain better performance and longevity with the addition of this heater and drier package.

Plant Level Ethernet Connection

A Network Address Translation device allows specific Ethernet network configurations across multiple machines in the plant network and offers the ability for remote support through VPN connections.
