"The BEL 505 + 150 form, pack, and seal system was engineered for those companies seeking a balance between greater output and moderate investment in automation," said Sander Smith, Product Manager, Wexxar/BEL. "Every feature of this modular system contributes to ease of operation, long service life, and productivity and growth."

BEL 505 semi-automatic case former/case erector

BEL 505 units comprise a line of semi-automatic case forming stations for manual hand packing operations. Each BEL 505 model is compact and ergonomically laid out. For example, operators can stand on either side of a BEL 505 to accommodate right or left handedness or the configuration of the work area. BEL 505 handles a wide range of case types and sizes. At a fraction of the cost of fully automatic case erectors, the BEL 505 semi-automatic case former/erector provides an economical and effective way to leverage manual labor and speed up packing. Standard features include:

  • Dynamic flap-folding system power folds all bottom flaps
  • Formed cases are positioned on a roller deck for either easy loading on the former for one person packing or transfer to a packing conveyor for two or more packers
  • Designed and built in North America with premium materials
  • Easy case size changes – tool-less case size changes are simple and quick with change points accessible from both operational sides of the machine
  • Lasting performance – corrosion resistant and paint free construction guards against machine wear and extends machine life
  • On machine instructions – user friendly pictorial guides and color coded labeling for convenient operation and size changes
