The Bradman Lake Group launches ICS (Integrated Cartoning System)
Monday 7 May 2007The Bradman Lake Group is proud to introduce the ‘ICS’ to the American markets, a flexible and advanced solution to top load cartoning.
A single unit consisting of three modules, the ICS is designed to form, fill and close trays and cartons, and eliminates the requirement for three separate machines and their associated space requirements.
Capable of forming cartons from flat blanks either with or without a hinged lid; lock style or 4 corner glue cartons; and the opening of pre-glued cartons, the ICS offers all the features of the Bradman Lake Groups ‘AMI Erector’. These include lightweight carbon fibre lock tools, adjustable glue tools, powered carton hopper and quick size change functionality.
The ICS loading module incorporates the agility of the LJ series and is available in single, double and triple race track formats. Capabilities range from up to 300 ppm on a single racetrack up to 900 ppm on a triple racetrack format.
The closing module, the third function of the ICS, features technology developed for the ‘Compact R Closer’ such as rubber fingers for carton control and quick size change performance. The closing module has been developed to offer an unprecedented level of flexibility. Closing options include the closing of cartons with a hinged lid; front flap glue or tuck-in; separate lid closure; and the folding or gluing of 4 upper flaps.
One of the key features of the ICS is its small footprint and modularity which allows this system to fit into small spaces and adapt to meet the customer’s requirements for both the feed and discharge of products and cartons.
To enhance the performance of the ICS further, all change components are lightweight and have quick change locking handles. Minimising downtime, short format change-over times and simple maintenance sets the ICS apart in terms of time efficiency.
