Case Erector | Erectors

The Linkx Case Erector system is flexible, fast and consistent with servo technology for repeatable operation.

Compact, fast, consistent.

The Linkx Case Erector System is ideal for high speed case erecting and fully integrated loading. The modular system starts at 15 cycles per minute but can be adapted to to run at speeds of up to 40 cases per minute. The integrated servo technology gives not only high speed capability, but has complete repeatability and consistency. Incorporating either a 2 gun hot melt glue system or a taping head the machine gives a fast and reliable closure to the bottom of the box again with total repeatability.

Flexibility and future proof

The Linkx Case Erector, sometimes referred to as Carton Erector or Box Erector design is modular to allow multiple variants with maximum flexibility. The standard models are the CF500 and CF750, and are fully adjustable with tool less changeovers. They can erect standard RSC cases, otherwise known Fefco style 0200 or 0201 style of cases. There are also options for larger framed machines, horizontal and vertical magazines for either compact footprint or high capacity board storage. The gantry robotic system can erect multiple size of cases, on demand at random. This is typically used in B2C  applications and single order dispatch from warehouses. If your case style is a little different ask for details, we can generally offer a derivative for most Feco 02 range of boards.

High output, Great Value, Low Maintenance, High Reliability

The Linkx Case Erector system range is fully servo driven for optimum performance and flexibility. Our machines are designed with maintenance in mind and it is a priority to ensure that upkeep is simple, quick and easy. The system is UK designed and built for 24/7 operating environments, with full diagnostic system and Ethernet connectivity for remote support as standard.
