WSI Global introduces the EdgePack, a semi-automatic carton accumulator that 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 EdgePack maintains the counted kick and lines cartons up for tray or slipsheet case packing, as it eliminates the repetitive wrist motion required by packers in manual case packing operations.
Relying on belts to move cartons, it is designed to handle small-to-mid-sized straight line variety cartons.
The EdgePack can increase production speed up to 30% and reduce staffing demand.
The machine can be configured to pack cartons with the glue lap up or down with casters for mobility and flexibility in moving between lines.
