The CF-DSS – Dual Side Seam Case Former is an innovative case former from AFA Systems. The CF-DSS uses a mandrel head and guide rails to form cases easily. Furthermore, the forming system is on a vertical orientation, which helps save valuable floor-space. The changeover is easily accomplished by simply removing and replacing the mandrel head and adjusting the guide rails. The key benefit of the CF-DSS is its ability to form the Dual Side Seam Case (DSSC). The DSSC is a revolutionary new case that offers many advantages over RSC’s, including less material used, cost savings of up to 20%, and a stronger bottom for increased product safety.

The compact case former features Allen Bradley controls and servo motors for smooth operation. The case former comes standard with a VPN to provide remote diagnostics and limit overall service costs. The CF-DSS can seamlessly integrate with end of line packaging lines with optional discharge conveyors.
