Delkor: Case converts to retail-ready display
The Cabrio Case from Delkor Systems, Inc. easily converts a corrugated shipping case to an attractive retail-ready display, and also offers a cost-saving alternative to tray/hood or regular slotted cases (RSC).
Designed for retailers eager to use retail-ready cases in their stores to reduce labor requirements for stocking, the Cabrio’s design also improves safety and reduces product damage when cases are cut open.
The patent-pending Cabrio Case is based on a conventional flange-seal case (FSC) that is formed with angled flaps that create a display which is open at the front with a higher wall at the back. The case is top-loaded and sealed. Once opened, it is tilted forward to display product on a shelf. The rear wall provides support for products presented in flexible packaging. This makes the Cabrio Case suitable for products that must be loaded flat for transit and then displayed upright.
Precuts on the front and sides of the cases allow easy tear-away of the case top, to produce clean lines on the display. A tear strip is used on the back of the case, away from the customers’ view. Sizes can be varied to match product dimensions or rows of product loaded into a case. In addition, the Cabrio Case has no perforations around the corners that could compromise the structural integrity of the container.
Employing a flange-seal case also may result in significant corrugated material savings of 10-20% versus an RSC or 34-53% versus tray/hood cases. In addition, RSCs must be preglued where the seams overlap, adding an additional machine step that increases costs. The Cabrio Case can be formed on the Delkor Trayfecta former and closed on Delkor F and S Series closers.
