Clamshell Tray Making Machines available in Columbus, OH
A clamshell tray making machine is a sophisticated piece of equipment that folds pre-printed cartons in the shape of clamshell trays. These are the same ones that used to be made of styrofoam and have now reverted to cardboard for health and safety concerns.
Heiber + Schröder currently offers two models for different output levels. The CE 1000 is the beginner's workhorse for manufacturing clamshell trays. You can start working with one lane and expand up to 4 simultaneous lanes. The full output power is 48,000 clamshell trays per hour.
Clamshell tray making machines should allow for flexibility because each client has different requirements. These changes should be easy to implement, with the least downtime for changeovers.
For example, the glue application system can be rotary stencil or bottom/top mounted glue guns. Having a preparation jig for off-machine setup of different clamshell tray formats also helps keep the workflow running in a snap. The option of utilizing plug-in/pull-out fixtowers also reduces waste and adjustment time.
Quite a lot of time (and material) may be consumed in fine tuning all clamshell tray dimensions and performance parameters for each new job. However, Heiber + Schröder's clamshell tray making machines eliminate this hassle by "teaching themselves" how to do it. The processor controlled blank feeder just needs one blank to learn how to handle the job. And once it gets set up, you can save the configuration for future runs. The flextower with spindle adjustment also allows you to perform fine tuning on the fly.
To help you get started as fast as possible, H+S clamshell tray making machines come with several pre-programmed tray styles and formats, which also allow you to manufacture french fry scoops, noodle soup boxes, pizza boxes, nacho trays and much more. Their movement is impeccably servo-driven.
For more demanding applications, the CE 1560 clamshell tray making machine can deliver up to 54,000 clamshell trays per hour, using up to 6 simultaneous lanes.
Leaving an H+S tray former running for some hours can quickly start to build up hundreds of thousands of clamshell trays. Fortunately, the optional batch counting and separating unit for clamshell trays allows you to stay organized even at this overwhelming speed.
