Bodine Gearmotors Drive the Packaging Industry

Case Sealer

Case sealers are packaging machines that drive an open card board box between two vertical conveyors while tape is wrapped around the box to close it. The model shown uses two Bodine 42R-FX (AC) parallel shaft gearmotors to drive the conveyors.

Foam-in-Bag Packaging

Foam-in-bag molding systems create molded cushions for products that require a consistent, precise fit and product protection during the shipping and handling process. The machine shown is driven by a Bodine INTEGRAmotor brushless DC (EC) gearmotor with built-in control.
