Case Erector

CE25-P

Pearson’s CE25-P case erector comes with an in-line printer mount compatible with most industry printers. At rates of up to 25 cases per minute, this machine enables on-demand case printing prior to forming. Within a small footprint, the CE25-P Case Erector can support up to four printers – an ideal solution for multi-SKU manufacturers looking to reduce corrugate cost. 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.

Key Features

  • Reliable Positioning for Picking

    Reliably positions the knockdowns for accurate introduction into the machine. Ergonomic height reduces operator fatigue.

  • Reliable Opening of Knockdowns

    A dual opposed vacuum force reliably opens the knockdown by grasping the case from both sides simultaneously to prepare the case forming.

  • Consistently Square Cases

    Synchronized dual chain drive transports case through closing and sealing section ensuring completed cases are square as they exit the machine.

  • Fast Changeover

    Fast 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. Trained technicians can complete a changeover in under 8min.

  • Small Footprint

    Vertically formed cases do not need to be tipped up for proper output, which reduces the overall machine size.

  • Reliable Closing and Sealing

    Case position is being controlled during flap folding providing accurate folding at the score lines.

  • Highly Reliable Non-Contact Interlocks

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

  • High-Visibility Machine Status

    A standard four-light LED beacon and multi-color interior machine lighting provides high-visibility of machine status.

  • Safety Redundancy with CAT 3

    Dual channel safety circuit maintains integrity of safety features in case of single component failure.

  • Easily Accessible Grace Port

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

  • Convenient Dual Access to the Machine

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

Upgrade Options

Additional Tape Head

A spare tape head allows quicker replacement of tape by exchanging the entire head and refilling the empty one while the machine is back up and running.

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.

Extended Magazine

Case erector magazine extensions allow longer continuous machine operation between magazine reloads. A variety of horizontal and vertical magazine extension upgrades are available and range from 2 feet to more than 16 feet depending on the machine and available floor space.

Glue on Demand System

A tankless glue system pulls hot melt adhesive in solid state form from a storage container into a heat chamber where it is melted only when required. This reduces char and waste and eliminates the need to fill a melt tank that is extremely hot.

Hand Pack Station

An ergonomically-designed, highly-configurable hand pack station that can be customized for various plant layouts and output requirements.

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.

Oversized and Undersized Case Support

This machine can be modified to operate outside of standard specifications to accommodate smaller or larger dimension products and cases. Specific adjustments require engineering review to determine limitations and potential performance trade-offs such as machine speed or larger machine footprint.

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.

Portability

Easily move or reposition a machine on the production floor with the portability package, which provides locking casters and stabilizing jackscrew assemblies. Depending on machine model, it can also include quick disconnects for air lines and electrical lines.

Remote Access Router

A remote access router mounted in the electrical cabinet allows secure Internet VPN connection to a machine or system for support and control program change needs. This capability is included with every Pearson engineered system and as an option on all individual machines. Remote service access offers the potential to reduce on-site service trips. Internet connectivity is available via direct Ethernet, Wi-Fi, or cellular methods.

CE25-P Case Erector with In-line Printer Mount

Pearson’s CE25-P case erector comes with an in-line printer mount compatible with most industry printers. At rates of up to 25 cases per minute, this machine enables on-demand case printing prior to forming.

How do I determine case hand?

Your case hand is important for us to know as it determines how the case erector is configured to run your cases. You can easily determine case hand by standing in front of your corrugate knockdown (flat unopened case) with the bottom flap pointing downwards. The larger side of the case now determines the hand as seen in the illustration. Case hand generally determines machine hand. However, since the industry does not use the machine hand terminology consistently, Pearson only asks for case hand. From there we will determine the correct machine configuration for you.

What is the lead time? When does it start?

Standard lead time is 10-11 weeks. Standard lead times do not account for non-standard options. These are estimates, your confirmed lead time will be provided once the project is being scheduled with project management. You may also request a specific date, which we’ll confirm before you place the order. Lead times start when the PO is accepted.

What HMI is standard?

Pearson standardizes on Allen Bradley, PanelView1000+. Our user-centric interface is built on the Rockwell platform and cannot be applied to other HMI brands.

What configuration options exist?

The above list of upgrade options only covers our most popular items intended to enhance the performance of your machine. Our configuration and customization options are extensive. To determine any necessary or desired modifications to the base machine, we review and consult with you on your individual application.

What information do I need to provide for a quote?

If a quick, high-level budgetary quote is all you need, we are happy to provide you with the base machine rate. However, the more information you provide us about your particular application, the more accurately we can quote you. It also enables us to identify potential challenges and discuss how we can overcome them. If you are interested in a detailed quote, expect our sales managers to discuss the following questions with you.

  • Case rates
  • Case Style (RSC, HSC, Bliss, FOL, etc..)
  • Case dimensions (LxWxD, Open Depth and KDW, Drawings are preferred)
  • Tape or glue closure
  • Construction type (mild steel, stainless steel, stainless with NEMA4X low-pressure washdown)
  • Environment of room where equipment will be placed – Hot, cold, wet, temp
  • Duty cycle (ie. 3 shifts per day 5 days per week)
  • Voltage requirement
  • Product inside the cases (pictures preferred)
  • Estimated full case weight
  • Wish list for upgrade options
  • Special requirements
  • Are there specifications that need to be reviewed?

What can I expect after I request a quote?

If all you need is a high-level budgetary quote, we will provide you base-level machine pricing immediately. If you are looking for a more detailed quote, we will reach out to you within 24 business hours to discuss your application and collect all the necessary information. Once we collected the information, expect a detailed quote within 2-4 business days (unless your application requires non-standard options). For a firm quote, we generally like to review a sample of your case(s)/partitions/bags. This greatly reduces the risk of missing any potential obstacles and ensures that you receive not only the most accurate quote but also a high-performing machine. If your request requires a specifications response, please allow 7-10 working days for a quote turnaround.

Why do you need case samples for a firm quote? What if I don't have any?

Case samples allow us to help you avoid unforeseen challenges, determine the need for special options or recommend a different machine model better suited for your application. In nearly 65% of all projects, case sample reviews prevent costly mistakes, inferior performance and extended lead times. Here is a small sample of unwanted problems case reviews uncovered and averted:

  • Samples did not match drawings, which drove a change to the proposal
  • Unidentified shied flaps
  • Case hand was not identified on drawings or different
  • Product fit too tight or too loose into the case
  • The case’s manufacturer’s joint location or style interfered with the product being loaded
  • Corrugate quality issues interfering with proper machine performance
  • Bag thickness/construction/size did not match the requirements
  • Flap folding sequences/glue patterns requiring special attention
  • Head space in cases requiring special options or over pack interfering with proper sealing

Although we’d like to review case samples before we provide a firm quote, we understand that this is not always possible. In that case, we will provide a quote based on the information and drawings you provided.
