Case Packing Equipment
Case packing machines improve the efficiency of your manufacturing process and increase your productivity. When you invest in automated case packing equipment, you’ll see a quick return on investment. Your staff will have the time to take care of other vital parts of the manufacturing process.
The case packing process begins when you place a layer of film over the products of pallets that need transporting. Depending on the package, you may require a simple layer of film, a layer of film and tray, a layer of film and padding, or complete wrapping around your items. After you’ve packed your cases, they’re ready for transportation and hitting shelves.
