Polypackhas built a new wraparound case packer to complement its existing line of shrink wrap equipment. When compared to traditional RSC cases, the new WR Case-Packer offers up to 30% savings on corrugate. Rather than using prefolded and glued RSC cases, the new WR case-packer uses die-cut corrugate blanks and forms them by first loading the product onto the blanks. The end result is a tightly packed case that offers support for thin chipboard cases encountered in the food, beverage, dairy, personal care and consumer products industries.
The new wrap around case packer has multi-layer packaging capability, servo-controlled gantry product loading system, a color touch screen interface, automatic changeover adjustments and can accommodate up to 20 cases/min.
