What Kind of Case Erector Does Your Business Need?

We can admit that simply automating an area of your business operations doesn’t always make it better. Every business has different requirements. Sometimes “doing it the way we’ve always done it” is honestly a good way to go.

However, for many companies, automating your end of line process with a case erector can and does make a business run much better.

When Packaging is a Priority

Businesses that depend on reliable packaging to get products to their customers will undoubtedly make their end of line process a high priority. You may already be facing a situation where your packaging efficiency is low, or you may be humming along at a good pace and just interested in looking at options you have to help you scale.

Regardless of your situation, if packaging plays a big part in your business operations, then an automatic case erector can definitely benefit your business.

If you aren’t using an automatic box erector, then you’re potentially missing out on multiple levels of savings by reducing labor (as labor costs rise) and increasing efficiencies (as material costs also rise). If you are already using a case erector, you still may be missing out on some advantages by not employing the best case erector for your business.

Other Benefits from Using a Case Erector

All case erectors build boxes, but not all case erector manufacturers are equal. When you’re choosing a high-speed case erector for your packing process, you should consider both speed and how well a given machine will handle the material you have to work with.

The most effective end of line packaging processes prepare products for shipping with *both* maximum efficiency and an uncompromising commitment to quality.

Wayne Automation makes fast and reliable end of line process achievable with our wide range of automatic case erectors, large box case erectors, and other packaging machines. We design and optimize our equipment to deliver a variety of benefits:

  • Robust and reliable speed
    Keeping your packaging system moving as efficiently as possible (nearly all Wayne case erectors can handle volumes of 30 cases per minute or more).
  • Seamless changeover of case sizes
    Enabling you to respond to shifting packing priorities in less time and with less material waste.
  • Compact footprint of machinery
    Bringing world-class engineering into your operation even when space is at a premium.
  • Integral attention to operator ease and safety
    Equipping workers with simple, seamless Human-Machine Interfaces (HMIs) and auxiliary safety features to protect them around fast-moving erector machines.
  • Specialized equipment options
    Providing even more packing solutions to manufacturers by allowing you to select specialty models for oversize and tablock cases.

For these reasons and more, customers tell us time and time again they choose and trust their case erector from Wayne Automation. Efficient, dependable, safe, and consistently delivering quality results, our machines have become the packaging equipment of choice across several industries.

Case Erector FAQs

With secondary packaging, we are confident that Wayne Automation’s case erectors can provide you with the competitive edge to keep up in today’s challenging business environment and safely scale your business without running up exorbitant costs.

Even though the benefits of investing in a case erector may be clear, you may still have some questions. Here are some we get frequently:

1. What kind of case erecting equipment do I really need?

A Wayne Automation WLRV-CE Case Erector

Wayne Automation offers several automatic cardboard box case erectors, each capable of achieving exceptional efficiency while maintaining excellent quality.

For example, large-volume manufacturers and distributors usually need a high-speed/high-volume automated packaging solution. We can help achieve whatever rigorous packaging requirements you may need to meet your yield goals.

For businesses in the start-up phase of their development and needing more compact, cost-effective machinery, we offer case erecting equipment that can be adjusted to fill the need of whatever your company demands.

All of our box erector machines positively affect the bottom line by condensing the steps in the packaging line; first, by being consistent in how they shape the material into boxes, and then by completing the boxing process with a high-quality hot melt glue or tape.

2. Where can I set up a case erecting machine?

Improved efficiency may play a key role in your decision to invest in automation. However, as you look around your existing warehouse or property, the question of *where* to put an automatic case erector could be an even bigger issue. This is especially true if you ship out numerous products that are different sizes.

Even if your packaging requires a simple changeover to accommodate the size change, that one adjustment could quickly compound into several more changes escalating into a complicated procedure. The cost to accommodate all the switching back and forth can increase downtime and stall productivity. Plus, the extra space needed to store additional machinery and raw materials can become an issue, too.

Time and space are crucial when deciding to automate. Fortunately, at Wayne Automation, we can offer solutions with fully automatic changeovers and flexibility to reduce the amount of downtime and footprint needed to keep your products quickly moving down the packaging line.

3. How will introducing automation impact my workers’ safety?

Wayne’s partners have come to appreciate that by investing in one of our case erector machines, they’re helping to improve their packing process and their work environment.

Every carton erector machine and every case top sealer we produce is made with LEXAN® Safety Doors and Allen Bradley Anti-Intrusion Switches. These features allow you full visuals of our machines’ operation.
