18TS - Inline Top-Seal Carton Closer

Featuring positive, continuous motion lugged carton transfer design, the ADCO 18TS is a perfect solution for inline sealing of single flap top load, RSC and tablock tuck cartons. With its simple design and ability to handle a wide variety of carton shapes and sizes at variable speeds up to 60 cartons per minute, the versatile 18TS is packed with value. Cartons arrive back-to-back and are indexed into the 18TS by either an air-actuated push-off indexer or a dual-lugged mechanical indexer. ADCO’s lugged transfer design maintains control of the carton all the way through the closing and sealing operation. This reliable and simple to operate carton closer is ideal for the most demanding and cost conscious production environments. Like all ADCO machines, the 18TS is available in both, standard and washdown configurations.
