Sealing Equipment for Cardboard Boxes
Process to fold cardboard box lids for shipment.
Daily production is about 5,000 boxes.
Cardboard boxes are transferred on a conveyor and a front inner lid is folded inward by blade ❶.
After a sensor detects the cardboard box, the air cylinder moves down the arm ❷ to fold the back inner lid inward.
By transferring the cardboard box with the outer lids touching the guide bars ❸, the outer lids are gradually folded inward.
Boxes are transferred to the taping device ❹.
The back inner lids could not be folded sometimes because of delayed timing of the air cylinder.
When a problem occurred in folding inner lids, the conveyor was stopped to adjust the speed controller of the air cylinder and to redo the packing. This work (10 minutes) occurred 3 times per day.
✪ The working hours has been reduced by 30 minutes per day.
Speed controller adjustment and re-packing of 30 minutes per day have been eliminated.
✪ Annual saving for labor cost is $1,800.
US$15 x 30 minutes (10 min. x 3 times) x 240 days = US$1,800.
