Model 470-T (aka ALIM-T) –
Cartoner, Tray Former/ Loader
This is the same machine as the Model ALIM but has a tray placer rather than a carton erector. The flat tray blank is picked from the magazine and placed between front and back lugs thereby erecting the leading and trailing walls of the tray. The product is loaded and the side walls are folded and glue sealed utilizing a folding mechanism that operates at dwell, thereby producing square trays. The same "standard" infeeds and collators developed for Scandia film bundlers, are available on the Model ALIM-T, covering most product orientations.
