Types Of End-Of-Line Packaging Systems

End-of-line equipment consists of box erectors, box packers, case sealers, palletisers and pallet wrappers – sometimes referred to as stretch wraps. Autopack has solutions for all box sizes – both fully automatic and semi-automatic – at speeds of up to 20 cycles per minute. They work with different pallet sizes where necessary.

Case Erectors

A case erector is a machine that is used to automatically form corrugated cardboard boxes or cases for packaging products. The machine can fold and seal the bottom flaps of the box, allowing it to be filled with products before being sealed with tape or glue.

Case packers

A case packer is a machine that automatically picks products from a conveyor belt or feeding system and then packs them into cases or boxes for distribution or storage. Generally, the machine can be used to pack a wide range of products, such as bottles, cans, jars or cartons into cases of various sizes and configurations.

Case Sealers

Case sealers are machines that are used in the end-of-line equipment on a production line to automatically seal boxes after they have been filled with products. Machines can seal large boxes with adhesive tape, gummed paper or hot melt glue. Case sealers can be fully automated – requiring little or no operator intervention – or semi-automated, depending on the model.

Palletisers

Palletisers are items of end-of-line equipment that can be used to automatically stack products on pallets, of various sizes and configurations, for shipment or storage. The palletiser works by picking products from a conveyor belt or feeding system and arranging them in a predetermined order on a pallet. It can add layers until fully loaded.

Pallet wrapping

For companies that use a palletiser to stack products onto pallets at the end of their production lines, a pallet wrapper is used to stretch wrap the products to the pallet. This increases load stability during transportation or storage. Pallet wrappers can be semi-automatic or fully automated versions that require little or no operator input.

The Benefits Of End-Of-Line Packaging Automation

Automating a production line with end-of-line packaging equipment is often done for several reasons. End-of-line packaging equipment can operate at much faster speeds than manual labour, which can lead to increased production volumes and faster turnaround times. Automating helps to reduce errors and inconsistencies in the packaging process, resulting in a higher-quality end product. Using automated repetitive packaging tasks with end-of-line equipment means that your company can reduce labour costs and staff can be reassigned to more complex tasks. This equipment also reduces the risk of workplace injuries and accidents associated with manual packaging tasks, so investing in end-of-line equipment helps to enhance health and safety in your production processes for your workforce, as well.

Most automated packing equipment can be programmed to handle a very wide range of product sizes and configurations, allowing for greater flexibility in production. End-of-line packaging equipment improves efficiency by integrating various packaging machines into a single system. Automation helps to streamline the packaging processes – reducing waste and increasing overall efficiency. One of the best benefits of an automated end-of-line packaging system is that it lowers the cost of manual labour, particularly as technology advances and becomes more efficient. Fully automated end-of-line equipment requires virtually no operator intervention and semi-automatic systems only require little input from a team member. As such, any investment in packaging machines will be an investment in the expansion of your production lines and the future of your business.
