Integrated Coding & Verification Unit
MG America has introduced the ACE-CT400 Coding & Verification Unit, an integrated system for carton serialization. The machine, which can provide track & trace capabilities as granular as unit-level, can handle cartons ranging in size from 20x20x80mm to 120x80x200mm at a maximum speed of 400 per minute. Coding on the ACE-CT400 can be performed on either side of a carton, and/or on top. Positive carton indexing and transportation is assured, as servo-driven belts provide accurate speed management and position control throughout the process. Laser printing also is available. Carton rejection is performed via servo-driven reject button; tamper-evident flap seal dispensers can be added as an optional feature. Remarkably, the ACE-CT400 accomplishes all this while only occupying a small footprint.
The system’s other features include:
- Stainless steel machine frame and electrical cabinet
- No pneumatic components
- Reject verification
- Unit can be supplied with Rockwell/Allen Bradley components
- can handle cartons ranging in size from 20x20x80mm to 120x80x200mm
