Partition Inserter for Product Protection

A good strategy for protecting products during shipping is to ensure the material surrounding them is constructed with the utmost care. A fully automatic packaging solution from Wayne Automation can enhance many aspects of your end-of-line processing, such as packaging consistency, throughput, maintenance costs, and line flexibility.

Producing a consistently square case is usually a high priority in an end-of-line packaging process. Many businesses have relied on (and some still rely on) manual assembly for constructing their boxes and partitions. However, the strain on manual production can eventually become too much. This can result in a decline in the quality of the packaging. If you’re scaling up your operation, there may come a time to shift from people to machines to increase the pace and precision of your process.

Partition Inserter for Production Efficiency

Adding a Wayne partition inserter to your packaging line can help you make that transition into automation, and start saving you time and money. Increased speed and efficiency can lead to less downtime (and fewer stoppages). Plus, the quicker your products are out the door and in the hands of your customers, the quicker you can get paid.

Additionally, maintenance is a breeze. The highly reliable Allen Bradley servo drives and motors powering our machines provide trouble-free operation for the case exchange, partition transport, and inserter motion. Automatic grease pumps and airline lubricators can also be added to provide on-the-go lubrication while the machine runs. Depending on the partition inserter model, changeover between partition styles can usually be accomplished quickly with a single operator.


No one solution can meet the needs of every application. To meet your specific requirements, we can easily customize a solution that supports your end-of-line line process and provides you with a wide range of benefits:

Control 100% of the Time

Wayne Partition Inserters maintain control of the partition throughout the insertion process. We never flip partitions open or drop them into cases. By handling both sides of the partition during opening and controlling it until it is seated in the case, the Wayne in-line partition opener and inserter achieves superior results regardless of the partition quality.

Powerful Solutions for Any Volume

Whatever the needs of your end-of-line line process, Wayne is ready with solutions. Models range from single-head servo insertion to high-speed machines capable of inserting four partitions at once. With over 35 pre-assembled and collapsed partition styles, you can be confident you have the best integrity and security every time—no matter the size, shape, or weight of your product.

Turn-Key Packaging Systems with Generous Options

The true value of Wayne Automation comes from our variety. Customers can choose partitions in glued-in or no-glue styles, as well as in corrugated or solid fiber styles. Wayne even sells dedicated pad inserters for C-pads and vertical or horizontal pads. For processes where material storage comes at a premium, our combination partition assembler/inserter can even build partitions from die-cut pieces.

Rugged for the Factory, Safe for the Workers

Wayne Automation machines are built to withstand the harshest conditions, offering a lifetime of unmatched quality. From the bottom up, our partition inserters are designed to work in any factory condition— and this means making safety a priority. All partition inserter models come standard with Lexan doors equipped with anti-intrusion switches, as well as parallel safety features to protect operators.


Regardless of your company’s needs, Wayne Automation partition inserters and packaging systems can deliver. Some of the most common applications are:

Glass and Plastic Packaging

With systems designed specifically for plastic containers, we can accommodate an enormous range of possible container shapes and sizes. Whether you need a glass or plastic container packaging machine (or one of each!), Wayne has you covered.

Petrochemical Packaging

Chemical products have specific configurations for boxing and shipping, but all potentially hazardous materials require secure, sturdy packaging for distribution. Volatile or corrosive chemicals in particular require sufficiently rugged cases and packaging for safe and successful shipping. For products subject to additional regulations and requirements, Wayne can help you build an appropriate end-of-line packaging solution for your products.

Food Packaging

The food industry includes a staggering range of products, and food packaging systems need to rise to the occasion. From glass bottles to paper cartons to plastic pouches—packaging a wide variety of products requires fast, efficient, and flexible machines. Wayne has the right solutions you need to get your products safely boxed up and out the door.
