The case packer is a machine that organizes and packs products into boxes (corrugated boxes, corrugated trays) in a certain way. It’s popular in the food, pharmaceutical, and beverage industry.
Some case packing equipment also integrates case erecting, product metering, case sealing, and strapping functions.
SiroSilo Industrial offers various types of case packaging machines to choose from, including:
- Top Load
- Side Load
- Bottom Load
Whether it’s aluminum cans, blisters, folding carton boxes, glass/PET bottles, plastic wrappers, or soft poly bags, we have the best case packing system for you.
Top Load Case Packer
The SiroSilo top load case packer consists of the following parts:
- Product Feeding Module
- Product Sorting & Organizing Module
- Case Erecting Module
- Case Packing Module
- Case Sealing Module
Small boxes, polybags, or glass bottles enter the feeding system, and the product organizing module arranges the products;
When the products are sorted and organized, the case erecting components also start to work at the same time, they pick and place a carton blank, erect it and seal the bottom, and then transport it to the designated position;
Then the products are ready for case packaging, the gripper head grabs the products and loads them from the top opening of the carton;
After the products in the carton pass the inspection, the carton is sent to the case sealing module for tape or hot melt adhesive sealing, and then the packaged carton comes out from the packer.
The video below displays such a cardboard box packer machine’s workflow.
Side Load Case Packer
SiroSilo’s fully automatic side load case packing equipment can arrange and combine products in layers or groups.
Before packing, the equipment automatically erects the carton blank to form the carton, and the fully erected carton is lying down with 2 sides open, then it is transported to the packing position, ready for packing.
Finally, a servo loader pushes the product into the carton from one side of the fully erected carton, as shown in the following diagram.
It is suitable for packaging cigarette packs, medicine blisters, cosmetic bottles, plastic bags, playing cards, and other regular products.
This horizontal case packing machine adopts a touchscreen control panel, can work independently, and is also linkable to a carton packaging line.
Watch the video below, you could roughly understand such a cardboard packer’s packing process flow.
Wraparound Case Packer
A wraparound cardboard packer is packaging machinery that wraps a corrugated cardboard box or tray sheet around a product for packing.
This corrugated board sheet is often referred to as a “box blank”.
After the machine has initially folded the box blank, the machine pushes the pre-arranged product into the carton enclosure, and then seals the box/tray around the product with tape or hot melt adhesive.
The following drawing showcases the whole wrap around packing process.
Wraparound boxes pack tighter, and stronger, and use less material per box than traditional RSC cartons, making them more environmentally friendly and easier to palletize and distribute.
Robotic Case Packer
The robotic cardboard packer consists of the case erector, conveyor belt, product sorting organizing device, robot, etc. The robot consists of a manipulator, suction tool, base and safety guardrail, and other accessories.
Depending on your production scale or product type, you can choose from one or two robots.
In addition, we have an optional integrated vision inspection system, which enables the robot to grab different types of products into cartons, suitable for those customers whose product portfolios are rich.
Pouch Case Packing Machine
The pouch case packing machine is suitable for loading bags with products into the corrugated cardboard box.
There are two common case packing ways for pouches: drop and robotic suction.
When your product is fragile and expensive, we recommend you choose a robotic case packer;
if your product is hard enough and not easily damaged, then you could choose a drop packer machine.
The end-of-line packaging of bags in chemical, salt, condiment, snack food, and other industries may introduce the bag case packer.
Can Case Packer
A can case packer is a secondary packaging equipment for cans, such as round cans, square cans, and special-shaped cans.
This type of packaging machine mainly includes a carbon steel frame, transmission system, pneumatic system, gripper head, servo control system, etc.
Before packing, it is essential to prepare the corresponding can organizer and lane divider conveyor, which is convenient for subsequent automatic grabbing and packing.
Due to the different features of glass jars and tinplate cans, there are vacuum and magnetic gripper heads for you to choose from.
These two types of gripping heads are not easy to scratch and wipe cans, which is beneficial to the protection of canned products.
According to your higher requirements for packing efficiency, multiple sets of gripping heads could be available to load multiple cartons at the same time.
Bottle Case Packer Machines
The bottle case packer machines automatically arrange, organize and pack the PET/glass bottles into open-top corrugated carton boxes, and then seal the boxes with tape or hot melt glue, and complete all motions fully automatically.
Generally speaking, the bottle case packer machines are usually top load case packers.
SiroSilo drop packer machine for bottles adopts a new type of combined structure, which consists of a carton erecting unit, a bottle organizing unit, a bottle loading unit, and a carton sealing unit, etc., which complete the corresponding functional motions respectively.
Usually, such machines have a bottle shortage alarm function, which will automatically stop after the alarm, ensuring the safety of operators.
Drop Packer Machine
The drop packer machine is useful for the automatic packing of unbreakable bottled, barreled, and potted products.
The products are fed in a single row, and the products are sorted through a side push system or a lane divider conveyor, and after accumulating the preset quantity, the liftable load-bearing plate rises, then the product falls into the carton, and the case packing is completed.
It could connect the upstream case erector and downstream case sealer to form an automated packaging line.
The secondary packaging of bottled, barreled or potted products such as edible oil, detergent, lubricating oil, purified water, etc. often introduce the drop packer machine.
