The updated Wayne Large Range Vertical Case Erector, Model WLRV-CE, is better than ever, delivering precision, speed, and efficiency to manufacturers who need to handle a wide range of case sizes. The WLRV operates with the precision of servo motors, and offers fully automated changeovers. It can erect RSC and HSC cases with left- and right-hand case presentation on one reliable system. This case erector machine provides the ultimate combination of power and efficiency.

WLRV-CE Automatic Case Erector

Wide range of case sizes, left- and right-hand cases, automatic changeover.

PRODUCT INFO

Flexibility to meet today and tomorrow’s packaging demands

The challenge many manufacturing customers encounter in the current production environment is the continual change in final product packs introduced by marketing which impacts case sizes. Varying case sizes cause continuous changeover requirements that affect production efficiencies and increase the cost of production labor, capital, and time. More than ever before, the updated WLRV-CE is up to the task, performing servo-controlled, automated changeovers in just five minutes.

Box erecting equipment with smooth, precise operation

The WLRV-CE is a vertical case erecting/discharging machine that utilizes intermittent motion, ensuring positive case handling and positioning throughout the process. This case erector employs servo technology so all adjustments based upon case size are motorized and deployed via pre-programmed recipes on the HMI. And, the updated WLRV-CE has a 26% increase in maximum sustained production rate, increasing throughput while maintaining consistent quality.

A case erector machine that handles a large range of case sizes

The WLRV-CE is the only case erector in the market today that handles a very large range of case sizes. We didn’t stop there, though. The updated model sees a 15% increase in the case size range, growing the maximum size case capability. The WLRV-CE now can erect boxes ranging from 6”x 6”x 4” to 24.5”x 20”x 20”, and can erect both right–hand and left–hand cases. Implementation of a patent-pending, multi-axis servo erecting station seamlessly switches between collapsed case opening directions via HMI selection.

Companion machines create comprehensive solutions

The WLRV-CE machine has been designed for manual load operations or to be tightly integrated with the Wayne Automation Automated Magazine Loader (AML), providing increased automation performance and reduced manpower load.

The RPS-LR Case Sealer is the ideal mate to the WLRV-CE Case Erector. Both systems can handle a wide range of case sizes and offer fully automated changeover.

Superior efficiency for crowded factories

The updated WLRV-CE boasts a 21% decrease in the overall length of the machine from the previous model, while increasing speed and expanding box size capacity. This gives manufacturers more flexibility in their floor plans, allowing for smoother processes. Wayne’s mission is constant improvement, and this updated model delivers like never before.
