5 special solutions for case packing tasks

5 special solutions for case packing tasks

Secondary packaging operations need speed, flexibility and adaptability to keep up with today’s high-speed filling lines. Here’s a handful of systems designed to do just that, which you can see in person at the upcoming WestPack 2016 show (Feb. 9-11; Anaheim, CA).

Case packer operates in semi- or fully-automatic mode

Rated at up to 20 picks or 10 cases of flexible packaging per minute, the BantamPro ELS (photo above) can operate as a semi-automatic or, with integrated case erector and sealer, as a fully-automatic machine. It can pack pouches, bags and flow-wrapped products into a range of cases. The BantamPro ELS features a steel frame for durability, a small footprint to conserve floor space and an intuitive human-machine interface (HMI) to make operations straightforward and trouble-shooting fast. Changeover for different products is streamlined to improve throughput and reduce downtime.

Case erectors change over quickly with rapid-load case magazine

For faster start-ups and changeovers, a new Rapid Load Case Magazine on case erectors from this manufacturer cuts load time in half compared to other systems from the company, and safely loads cases while the machine is running. This increases efficiency and improves ergonomics, especially for mixed media case forming environments. Able to handle a range of case styles, the flexible magazine integrates easily with automatic and robotic case loaders to create a high-speed automation solution.

3-in-1 case packing system puts flexibility at its heart

The new R-1 case erector/packer/sealer uses the D2 robotic head for gentle loading of a variety of products. The infeed system comes in different formats to accommodate your specific applications. For example, when the product is a carton or bottle, a simple flat conveyor will transfer the products from filling to case packing. Operations can pack flexible bags/pouches in either a flat or stand-up configuration by employing a dual-axis servo.

Entry-level tray former creates retail-ready packs

A basic system with an entry-level price, the new TF-100 tray former creates four-corner trays for nearly any market application, including retail-ready displays. Available with an open design that is easy to clean and maintain, the small-footprint machine comes with a 7-inch touchscreen for easy monitoring of machine functions, such as speed and glue-pattern adjustments. Flap bonding is assured with a proprietary passive compression technology. And tray changes can be done in less than 10 minutes with a tool-less, color-coded two-crank system.

Tape head creates easy-open pull tab for cases

The new SX-T case sealing tape head creates a unique pull-tab so securely sealed cases are easy to open without dangerous knives or other tools. The patent-pending design forms a pull-tab at the tail without any added or special materials. The simple-to-use head can be loaded in less than 30 seconds and features a “no break” tape advance.
