PPCTS/impack Packaging reduces folder gluer packing bottlenecks
with new ergosa 8.0 semi-automatic & virtuo 5.3 automatic packing systems

that currently use conventional hand packing methods for their folder gluers can
greatly improve their productivity with the use of the ERGOSA Semi-automatic or
VIRTUO Automatic packing systems.
can help increase production speeds, reduce the number of packing personnel, as
well as greatly reduce the occurrences of repetitive motion injuries.
semi-auto packer was developed to reduce the number of movements made by the
packing personnel with a better ergonomic approach, that removes unnecessary
steps, organizes the packing method in more fluid motion and greatly improve the
packing personnelís efficiency.
packing method removes stress from the packing personnelís joints, tendons and
wrist, as the cartons are slid into the case without any lifting.
versatility of the ERGOSA allows packing of straight line, 4 & 6 corner cartons
at greatly increased productivity and speed, in multiple layers and rows, as
well as the traditional packing of lock bottom boxes. Once the corrugated case
is filled by the packing personnel, it is automatically ejected from the packer
and can be directed to a case taping system or other conveying system. The
corrugated case bottom is not required to be pre-taped prior to packing.
packer can be installed on new and existing folder gluers from any manufacturer
at the exit end of the folder gluer compression section conveyor or after
various turning modules designed by IMPACK to pre-condition the orientation of
the boxes prior to packing. The ERGOSA system is speed synchronized to the
folder gluer and job change preparation only takes a few minutes and is normally
done the packing personnel.
allows easy access to the individual cartons for quality control checks, is
ergonomic, flexible with minimal changeover and capable of high production
speeds to answer the needs of today's folder gluer lines. The ERGOSA can be
configured with different types of modules and tools to address each customerís
current or future needs.
The VIRTUO is
a single row, single level automatic packer for folding cartons, micro fluted
cartons and some corrugated boxes.
can pack straight line, 4 & 6 corners, as well as pre-alternated lock bottom
boxes. The straight through packing approach with the fix feeding, counting and
separation section, as well as vertical corrugated case descent, allows for high
performances packing from small to very large boxes.
of the carton orientation is done by various turning devices, manufactured by
IMPACK, as needed, prior to entering the VIRTUO packer.
can handle corrugated cases with or without top flaps and the bottom flaps do
not require taping prior to packing. Empty corrugated case loading is done from
the top and the filled cases are ejected automatically from the back of the
packer to a taping device or conveying system. An automatic empty case loader
with preformed cases is available with the capability to connect to an automatic
preparation changeover is simple, fast and only takes a few minutes. In addition
to its ability to pack medium to smaller size boxes, the VIRTUO excels in the
packing of medium to large 4 & 6 corner boxes, as well as, micro-fluted and
corrugated reinforced folding carton straight line boxes. These boxes typically
packed by two packing persons with great physical effort at relatively slow
speeds can now be packed with on only one person at much higher production
speeds, with the elimination of repetitive motion injuries.
packerís straight feeding section, allows it to handle heavier board callipers,
micro-fluted and some corrugated boxes without damaging the cartons.
