Cartoning made simple
By Pat Reynolds, VP/Editor, Packaging World
Occasionally the ROI on an automation project makes it so attractive it becomes easy to justify the upfront investment. That's pretty much what happened recently at Salt Lake City-based Schiff Nutrition. Secondary packaging of Schiff's flow wrapped Tiger's Milk nutrition bars was being done manually by six people. Now five of them are occupied in jobs less ergonomically taxing while an automated solution takes care of the cartoning tasks they used to perform.

Carton erecting, carton loading, and carton sealing are all neatly arranged in a compact, U-shaped line provided by Delkor. First is carton erecting, done on a Delkor Trayfecta system. The 24-pt SBS cartons are printed offset in five colors.

"We have two bar sizes and two carton sizes," says Jordan Rettig, packaging engineer at Schiff. "But we spend zero time on changeover at the carton erector. When we run the smaller 35-g bar, we only load cartons into one magazine on the carton erector. For 55-gram bars, we load the other magazine. It makes a huge difference in terms of efficiency when you don't have to change forming tools or carton erecting tools on machinery."
