PRODUCT INFO

A Powerfully Customizable Addition to Your End-of-Line Process

At Wayne Automation, we know that every end-of-line process is different. That’s why we’ve developed a comprehensive, modular packaging automation system, so you can design the process you need. The Wayne Automation Flap Closer and Conditioner provides complete, custom solutions for trouble-free flap folding and flap relaxing. The patented flap conditioning process folds, closes, and conditions the flaps without damaging the product or compromising the structural integrity of the case.

Developed for the harsh, 24/7 environments common to the glass industry, the FCC box closer machine delivers the quality, ruggedized engineering we’ve built our name on. It’s the promise of years of trouble-free performance, operator-friendly controls, and seamless compatibility that makes this machine a member of the Wayne line-up.

A Flexible System, Compatible with Case Flippers and More!

The Flap Closer and Conditioner is available as a standalone unit, or may be expanded with a variety of additional features. If your process does not use pre-closed boxes, the FCC can include a case inverter at the end to prepare the case for final sealing. This relaxing and folding system delivers clean, even cases, allowing for easier, more secure palletization.

An available tamper/inspector unit adds further control to the process, ensuring drop-packed materials are seated in the case before flap folding and conditioning. In the event that the tamper/inspector is not able to properly seat the product in the case, the machine stops to prevent that product from being damaged. This ensures no damage occurs to either the product or the case, delivering better results for your customers.

Pre-inspection for added process control

An available tamper / inspector adds further control to the process, ensuring drop packed materials are seated in the case before flap folding and conditioning and no damage occurs to either the product or the case. Should the tamper / inspector not be able to properly seat the product in the case, the machine stops to prevent that product from being damaged.

Modularity lets you choose what you need

For customers who hand palletize, the FCC is available without the case inverter and for customers whose cases are already closed, the machine is available as a flap conditioner only. You choose the equipment that suits your needs.

Rugged and reliable, the Wayne Automation way

The FCC Flap Folder / Conditioner is built for the harsh 24/7 environments common to the glass industry. This machine will provide years of trouble-free operation that has become the differentiator for Wayne Automation machinery.
