What Does a Case Erector Do?
A case erector is a sealing machine that will automatically erect and seal corrugated cardboard boxes. These machines are custom build to accommodate all different shapes and sizes of cartons to ensure they are set up properly and in the fastest amount of time possible. This custom end-of-line packaging equipment offers your company a wide range of innovative solutions and have several benefits beyond speeding up the production process. Our packaging experts at Hughes have put together a list of just a few of those important benefits below:
Case Erectors Make Economic Sense
Are you still making boxes by hand? Let us assure you that case erectors have improved dramatically over the last 10 years and any industry can benefit from them. If your business is erecting more than 300 cases per day, it definitely makes economic sense to use a case erector. In addition, case erectors today are easier to use and faster to set up (and changeover) than ever before. Save money and speed up your production process by building more cartons in a shorter amount of time.
Case Erectors are Reliable
Wondering what to look for in a good case erector? A simple distinguishing factor that separates the “good ones” from the “bad ones” is that good case erectors make cases without jamming up. The key to a good case erector is continuous control of the case throughout the entire erecting and sealing cycle. Carton erectors are custom build to ensure that each carton is assembled correctly; eliminating errors.
Case Erectors Improve Assembly
Case erectors don’t just build boxes faster, they build them better. These machines are designed to incorporate carton reinforcing elements such as tape sealing to ensure that the box is stable and sturdy enough to hold any product.
