As an all in one system, the Case Packer offers what the company describes as a compact and cost effective alternative to installing a trio of individual machines, and has been engineered in response to rising demand from UK manufacturers who are increasingly looking to automate their food packing lines, to reduce footprint, and to move away from manual labour.
With precise product handling at high speeds of 12 cases per minute, the Case Packer receives single products from an infeed conveyor, groups them according to the programmed pattern on a loading platform, before lowering them into a formed case below, the filled case is then automatically closed and sealed on the top and bottom with tape.
Suitable for handling any product packaging and orientation, the Case Packer can be customised to suit specific demands and reprogrammed for the packing of different products and quantities. Industry 4.0 compatible technology, integrated within the Case Packer can capture and make data readily available for use in “live" decision making scenarios.
The compact design also makes it the ideal solution for production areas with limited available space as the full system is in one frame, rather than having three separate machines, therefore drastically reducing footprint.
The Case Packer combines Endoline’s market leading erecting and sealing systems with case packing technology all integrated into one machine. “Working with the UK’s leading food manufacturers we are aware of the increasing demand for high speed, fully automated systems which will increase efficiency.” Andrew Yates, Sales Director of Endoline Machinery explains. “We have re-engineered our case erectors and sealers to meet expectations for high speed, flexible systems, but by incorporating case packing we are now able to offer a complete end of line solution.”
