Afterpress

Hartmann afterpress systems press the egg cartons to prepare them for high-quality printing and labelling. They are designed for two, three or four rows of egg cartons depending on the requirement and machine setup.

Think Value – Raise the Bar

  • Flexible Operation
    Hartmann afterpress systems are designed to operate both in-line and off-line.

  • Smooth Operation
    The afterpress system is synchronised with the moulding machine and the dryer.

  • Printing and Labelling Quality
    The heated upper and lower tools create a high quality, smooth surface.
Afterpress Line for 2, 3 or 4 Rows of Egg Cartons

The lower tools are secured to a heavy pressing bar between the uprights. Heavy cams move the upper tools up and down.

Both the lower and upper tools are heated. The temperature is automatically controlled by thermo sensors.

The tools press together around the cartons to create a smooth surface and ensure a uniform shape and uniform dimensions for stable denesting and automatic packing.

A driving terminal runs the conveyor belts and humidifier, while the afterpress has its own driving terminal. The speed can be freely regulated. The complete afterpress line runs automatically in sync with the moulding machine.

The cartons are delivered to a stacking table ready for printing or labelling.
