PID SBP ® Partition Inserter - Stretched Board Pre-assembled Partitions Inserting Device

Overlapping cardboard sleeve packers

The PID SBP® inserts stretched board pre-assembled partitions into cardboard boxes, in order to protect fragile products (such as glass containers) and save their labels from abrasions.

This device can be installed on the WP wrap-around casepackers and on the CM combined packers.

Compared with the traditional inserting systems of non-preassembled partitions, the PID SBP® allows to:

  • reduce the partitions purchasing cost by about 20% and their storage volume by at least 60%;
  • have a more compact machine, since both the partition magazine and the Partition Inserting Device are mounted on top of the machine; in this way, the machine dimensions are the same as those of a conventional casepacker;
  • speed up the partition insertion operation and the loading times of the relevant magazine, since partitions are already pre-assembled;
  • reduce the sensitivity of partitions to humidity and climate changes.

The PID SBP® and the pre-assembled partitions magazine are mounted at the machine inlet, on top of the pack-forming section. The maximum operating speed is 40 packs/minute (1-head model) or 60 packs/minute (2-head model).

A mechanical arm equipped with vacuum suckers picks a stretched board pre-assembled partition from the partition magazine, opens it and lowers it between the products that have just been grouped in the required pack collation.

Finally a cardboard blank is wrapped around the products by means of special guides, thus forming a case.
