WSI Global Offers Carton Accumulator

GRAND JUNCTION, CO | WSI Global, a manufacturer of finishing equipment for the carton converting, liquid packaging, and corrugated industries, offers the EdgePack, a semi-automatic carton accumulator said to increase production speed and worker safety over manual case packing.

The EdgePack is situated after a folder/gluer in a carton converting line, where it turns the folded and glued carton shingle onto its folded edge. The unit maintains the counted kick and lines cartons up for tray or slipsheet case packing, all while eliminating the repetitive wrist motion required by packers in manual case packing operations. It is designed to handle small-to-mid-sized straight line variety cartons.

Company says this semi-automatic case packing machine relies on belts to move cartons, eliminating any scratching or printing disruption and delivers ease of makeready, with setup taking place as the carton shingle moves through the machine.

The EdgePack reportedly can increase production speed to 30% and reduce staffing demand, leading to a rapid ROI. The machine can be configured to pack cartons with the glue lap up or down, and features casters for mobility and flexibility in moving between lines.
