Glass and Plastic Packaging: Wayne’s Powerful End-of-Line Solutions

Glass and plastic containers are everywhere in today’s industries. Whether you manufacture and ship these containers or fill and seal them with your product, Wayne Automation can help you create a more efficient end-of-line packaging process.


For industries that need plastic container packaging machines and glass bottle packaging machines, Wayne Automation has been a trusted partner since 1976.

The reliability of our fully automatic packaging machines made them early favorites among container companies where high volume production —often operating 24/7— is the norm, not the exception.

We’re proud to have forged long relationships in the growing glass packaging and plastic packaging markets, while we continue to build new ones. Our dedication to quality, efficiency, service, and continuous improvement provides powerful, end-of-line solutions for businesses manufacturing, filling, and sealing plastic and glass containers.

Reliable Automatic Packing Machines for Your Business

Wayne Automation designs and manufactures high quality packaging machines that provide speed and precision in every part of the process. Read on to find out how our turnkey automation solutions can improve your end-of-line process both now and for years to come.

Case Packers for Every End-of-Line Need

Because we earned our leading reputation in the container packaging industry, we understand your end-of-line needs.

Do you need a glass bottle packaging machine? Our custom tray and case packer solutions use modular design components to give you speed and precision while meeting your budget and schedule.

Maybe you need a lightning-fast plastic container packaging machine for simple items. Wayne provides fully automatic plastic container packing solutions, but also offers manual pack station approaches if you need to involve a human worker’s careful touch.

Wayne also offers a glass bottle packaging machine (BCI machine) tailor-made for situations where glass bottle manufacturing equipment is used, or where product is contained in pre-prepared glass bottles. Our basket carrier erector/inserter is a quick, compact, and comprehensive system. It produces up to 30 six-pack or four-pack basket carriers per minute, while only taking up 22 feet of line space.

Partition Styles for Any Application

Two open boxes with partition inserters inside. The range of possible container sizes and shapes is wide, especially for plastic containers. Packagers must often insert partitions to make sure the container are organized, and to protect the product it contains. Whether you need a glass or plastic container packaging machine for partition insertion, Wayne has you covered.

Our partition inserters accomodate either pre-assembled or die-cut partitions, available in 40 different partition styles. They get the job done quickly, too. Our fastest machine is capable of inserting up to 70 pre-assembled partitions per minute, making large-scale production seamless.

Gentle Handling for Delicate Containers

A glass bottle packaging machine must ensure the safety of breakable goods without sacrificing efficiency. For this reason, our flap folder and closer machines use a patented process to protect the product and maintain the case’s structural integrity during folding. A sensor verifies the product is fully seated in the case before closing continues. In the event of error, the machine will automatically stop to ensure delicate products like glass jars and bottles avoid damage.

Our devotion to product integrity is also why our case inverters use a special “soft touch” method. They maintain case contact with the conveyor during the entire inversion process. With longer boxes, they use an escapement to keep case flaps closed.

These safety features prevent glass bottles and jars from falling or sustaining damage, while operating at a rate of up to 40 cases per minute.

Rapid Changeovers Made Simple

Industries using glass and plastic containers in packaging often require changeovers. Some automated systems risk extensive downtime, which can hurt profit margins.

But we at Wayne engineer our automatic packing machines to make line changes a simple, intuitive process at any step of packaging. For instance, the RPS-LR Automatic Case Sealer is even capable of automatic changeovers, taking just 20 seconds to complete the process.

From quick-change inverter heads to easy-to-adjust case erectors, our packaging equipment offers simple, powerful solutions.

World-Class Service to Support Your Success

A lack of experienced machine operators and high transition costs are among the biggest obstacles to automating end-of-line processes. Many plastic and glass container packagers struggle to hire trained, qualified staff, or front the loss for a lengthy transition process.

Wayne Automation has you covered on both counts.

Our expert engineers provide personalized guidance, starting well before delivery and continuing long after installation. We provide training for workers, and are renowned for our dedicated engineering support, providing assistance and guidance day or night.

Wayne is also committed to seamless integrations. We can get your system operational in mere days. This drive to provide successful integrations has helped make our machines a staple of the container packaging industry for decades.
