K50 Box Forming Solution
The new and innovative K50 box and tray former from Kern is capable of forming boxes and trays that can be used for boxing up fruit, vegetables and other pre-packed food items.
This packaging solution forms boxes and trays directly from automatically fed cardboard sheets.
Up to 35 boxes and trays can be produced per hour. The K50 format changes are made quickly and easily, avoiding unnecessary downtime, which includes the creation of the cartons’ four corners.
Box cartoning machinery that is currently on the market normally has an entirely manual switch format. This means the operator must make long manual changes to vary from one box format to another. This normally causes long machine stops and higher error rates.
The K50 really changes the rules of the game through the introduction of the automated format switch. Simply select the desired format from the control panel and 44 servomotors will move the tools to configure the machine to produce the chosen format, quickly, easily and cost effectively.
This packaging solution can produce different types of corners with continuous production depending on what strength and functionality the boxes need.
The K50 advantages don’t finish here: by changing the configuration the machine can also produce boxes or trays with integrated and non-integrated lids.
Optimise your logistics with PackOnTime®
With the booming online shopping market demanding more paper, plastic and cardboard packaging, Kern has developed its own smart multi format packaging system with dynamic sizing, insertion and package closure.
This unique and innovative packaging system creates the perfect smart package using our patented form of corrugated cardboard box which provides protected transport for packages, space saving storage and straighforward handling for sorting and stacking.
The PackOnTime system produces tailor made boxes in the optimal size for each item which can be inserted directly into the box with no requirement for any filling material such as polystyrene.
The patented box is made from a flat corrugated cardboard sheet, is relatively light weight and its dimensions are continuosly adapted to the items being packaged. The box can be easily opened without tools and re-used to return the item if required. Despite its amazing functionality, the finished package has a high quality finish and presentation, and can be personalised with your own brand messaging and graphics.
