Best practices for selecting
case packing equipment
Things to look out for when selecting case packing equipment.
1. Know your product loading orientation. There are top loading, side loading or end loading configurations available in case packing equipment. You can save a lot of time and energy in selecting vendors and equipment if you know in advance just what the appropriate loading orientation is for your needs. Design in reliability. Ask yourself if your loading orientation can change to allow for enhanced reliability.

2. Look into how the case packer reacts to variances in materials. Try to talk to other customers to find out how the case packer responds when a lower quality, damaged, or soggy (in humid conditions) piece of corrugated board is fed into it.

3. Ask other users about accessibility. When you’re talking to customer references, ask whether their operators and technicians can you get into the machine to clean it. Is the door accessible to the operators? Are guides and hold-downs too heavy to lift, or are they ergonomic and user friendly? Can operators open and close the doors? Is it easy to replenish the machine with blanks?

4. Don’t ignore a machine’s ability and method for case squaring. The squareness of the case is critical for proper conveying and palletizing downstream. As simple case squaring guides can also cause the case to drag back and skew, consider positively actuated case squaring. Accurate timing and position control are needed. A test with your actual appropriately packaged product samples is best.
