Wrap Around Case Packer

The Wrap Around Case Packer places product from the side or top of the wraparound, harness style, or tray blank.

Massman Automation is the industry leader in wraparound case packing. The benefits of wraparound case packing are numerous, such as flat blank storage and shipment and greater case blank magazine capacity. Typically, corrugate use is lowered and the cost per blank is less due to the unglued manufacturer’s joint. Improved palletizing can be achieved because the loaded Wrap Around cases are more square than a typical RSC type case.
