The WF20 is a fully automatic case former / case erector with tape head and toolless changeover. Wexxar's Pin & Dome machines have, for the last 25 years, become the standard for major customers who demand the highest quality output and maximum uptime.
From this experience, the Pin & Dome technology for case forming equipment has now evolved to be available to the mid-speed, mid-priced market. Box one is ready to run without the use of tools or guide-books. A color-coded, tactile guide offers a more efficient, friendly set-up for operators. The Tilt-out Tape Head (for the tape version), and the easy kip handle adjustments are all extra details that allow for a completely toolless, convenient changeover, in less than 5 minutes.
Fully Automatic Case Former / Case Erector - Wexxar WF20 Features & Benefits
- Speed: Maximum 20 cases per minute (CPM)
- Size maximum: L: 24 x W: 17 x D: 16.5 Maximum E = 25
- Size minimum (Smaller/Custom sizes available by request): L: 6 x W: 5 x D: 3.5 Minimum E = 6
- Positive Case Squaring System: Lines up and squares the case during sealing, creating visually appealing case output.
- Single Push Transport System: Combines linear bearing guides with a mechanically adjustable case pusher for case squaring.
- Toolless Size Changes: Not only a truly tool free operation, but we have cut the time for a full size change to under 5 minutes!
- Tilt Out Tape Head: Tape head tilts out over outfeed conveyor, for easy rethreading or tape head replacement.
Standard Features on All Wexxar Machines
- Pin & Dome: As flat case blank is injected into the two facing plates, the pins goes into the flutes and the dome pinches the corrugated tightly. The two plates then open to 90 degrees to perfectly square the case. Since no compressed air is used in this process, it greatly decreases contamination and is more durable than vacuum cups which can clog and wear.
- Safety & Ergonomic Features: Floor level tending reduces strain; every machine Wexxar builds is fully guarded from in-feed to out-feed, interlocked safety guarding throughout the machine; easily accessed control and assemblies; palm e-switches located on both sides.
- Dynamic Flap Folding: Wexxar case formers have a dynamic flap folding system. As long plow rails aren't used, the overall length of the machine is significantly more compact. All four of the flaps are power folded in one position.
- Compliant Drive Belt: Each of the two facing unidrive drive belts is mounted on a spring mechanism. This allows a constant pressure to be exerted on the case, despite normal variations in case width. Even heavy cases are handled carefully and with great control.
- Non-Contacting Sensors: Proximity sensors are able to have a much greater operating lifetime and don't cause jams than contacting sensors.
- In-Line Operation: By keeping the intake and outflow of the machine in line with the rest of the line, aisles are kept free, safety is improved and space is saved.
- Simplicity of Construction: By planning through each step in the construction of the machine and its materials, Wexxar is able to greatly reduce potential problems.
- Small Footprint: Compact operations allows Wexxar's machine to fit into virtually any application and production line.
- Integrated Controls: Connecting each machine in the full production line through common equipment and protocols reduces complexity and problems while increasing overall control.
- Feed Magazine: Wexxar's extraordinarily large feed magazine option allows much longer operating periods without restocking and supervision
- Washdown Configuration: EnviroGuard I and II Level One - lower parts of the machine protected against incidental splashing from caustic agents. Level Two - machine protected against direct washdown with non-corrosive cleaning agents and protected against incidental splashing from caustic detergents. Call for list of parts and protection methods.
- Tagout/Lockout: When a machine is locked out, it cannot be operated until all the safety features are in place.
- Paint-Free Construction: No paint: no contaminating flakes, no extra maintenance required.
- UL-Listed Electrical Panels: Wexxar meets or exceeds all standards, requirements and specifications
- NEMA Electrical Specifications: Wexxar meets or exceeds all standards, requirements and specifications
- Regional Service Available: Through Wexxar's operating partnership with 10 other Pro Mach companies, there are factory trained service specialists available across North America.
