A case erector addresses the problems caused when building packaging by hand. When your employees are responsible for erecting boxes manually, a number of issues arise:
- Building high quality boxes at an efficient speed is difficult for a person to do.
- Human error happens, and it can increase your costs due to lost packaging.
- Hard labor can cause staff related safety issues in terms of repetitive motion injuries.
- Your only option for speeding up the process is to add more employees, which is costly.
Box erector equipment can start with a flat box, form it, fold it, and seal the bottom all in one operation. Wayne machines even have the option to perform automatic case changeovers if you need differently sized boxes.
Erectors can make square boxes consistently, and at a much higher rate than an operator can achieve. This equipment can handle large volumes and rapid rates required by industrial manufactures. There are also smaller and compact versions for smaller automators that can save money and space while delivering the benefits of automation.
Wayne case erectors come in many forms and sizes. A vertical case erector is an affordable machine with a small footprint, and it can still run up to 20 cases per minute. If you use tablock cases, there’s an erector for that. You can choose from equipment built to manage large volumes, small volumes, and everything in between.
Adding a case erector to your production line will help you cut your costs and produce boxes that will hold up better throughout your supply chain. They also look better, which will be appreciated by the end user.
