Wexxar Bel 505 V2

RICHMOND, British Columbia β€” The new BEL 505 V2 semi-automatic case former from Wexxar Bel is the latest iteration of its popular selling BEL 505. The new model brings several major improvements in operational efficiency, including a 27% reduction in air consumption, which significantly reduces the machine’s operating costs.

Attributing to this energy savings is an upgraded pneumatic system with folding mechanisms that are faster, stronger and more reliable, while requiring less air. This is important as air is the most expensive energy expenditure in most facilities, so the ability of the BEL 505 V2 to reduce that cost is a major win for customers. For those facilities that have higher costs due to imperfect or inefficient air systems, the BEL 505 V2 gives customers even more savings. 

In addition to the reduction in air consumption, the BEL 505 V2 has a wider case-size range with a minimum width of 5”. This improvement provides greater flexibility to the machine as more and more companies are utilizing smaller case sizes. This standard minimum width also reduces the cost to purchase for some applications, which would have required a custom modification to the original model.

The BEL 505 V2 is more robust and durable, thanks to the addition of corrosion-resistant materials such as anodized aluminum and stainless steel on most machine components.

Changeovers have also been revamped to be easier and more efficient by removing the locking mechanisms, allowing width changeovers to be performed without having to unlock and relock like the previous BEL 505 model. The machine is also easier to service as the pneumatic controls – operated with a single start / e-stop switch valve, are located at the front as opposed to the bottom of the machine.

  • Case Size Range – Length
    • 8” / 203 mm minimum
