Challenge

To install a flexible casing and palletizing system capable of handling a wide range of dimensions without damaging the packaging.

Solution

The cases in question included both display trays and Regular Slotted Container (RSC) cases – both of which needed to be handled carefully to prevent damage and ensure the quality of the shelf-ready packaging.

This meant that precision and smooth efficiency were an essential part of Mpac’s brief, as was the need to switch seamlessly between different case dimensions.

We responded with an integrated case and tray palletizing system. An automatic product infeed collator handled the different size combinations easily, while the automatic top loading palletizing system ensured quick changeovers, increased versatility and improved reliability. The addition of a stretch wrapper feature provided extra product protection during shipping.

The compact machine design also allowed adequate operator access and ease of maintenance, despite limited floorspace availability.
