Checklist for buying case packing equipment
When you approach case packer manufacturers, it's best to have a document prepared that answers all of the following questions:
  1. Product and package. What is your product? What is the package type (e.g., carton, tub, bottle, can, blister pack, etc.). Does this product have different sizes that you want handled on a single machine?
  2. What are the dimensions of the primary package? You'll want to specify diameter and height, if a round container. Or length, width and depth (LxWxD) if a carton. Most case packer manufacturers will want LxWxD according to how the product will be placed in the container relative to the container opening.
  3. How will the product be delivered to the machine? Will the package be standing up? Laying on its side? Entering the machine facing which way? Sometimes drawing a little sketch showing how the package will be oriented on the infeed conveyor will help. Also, what do you want to see when you open the case? How should the package printing or labels be facing?
