Headlining Endoline’s stand E30 at Total 2013 is the latest case erector – designed specifically to handle SRPs, the 248, fully automatic case erector is a high speed, servo driven machine incorporating a gluing system to seal the bottom of each case as it is formed. The use of glue is essential with SRPs as tape interferes with the functionality of the cases at the retailer, but it also supports the higher running speeds made possible by the use of servos while significantly reducing the cost of consumables by eliminating the need for tape.
Cleverly designed, the 248 incorporates Endoline’s signature dual opposing vacuum case opener and a top hopper which results in an extremely compact footprint enabling the 248 to be installed as an upgrade in space constrained packing halls as well as in state of the art new production sites.
Other items from the Endoline range will be on show, including a case packing module and a fully automatic random case sealer.
"A well know multinational food producer recently informed Endoline that it will be looking for an incremental increase in productivity in the order of 25% for its next generation production facilities," remarks Simon Taylor, Endoline’s Sales & Marketing Director. "The innovative use of technology and close cooperation with customers, suppliers and board manufacturers has helped us to dramatically raise the bar in terms of achievable production speeds for packaging machines. Endoline is well placed to meet this challenge with its new generation machinery – we are very excited to be demonstrating these machines at Total this year," Simon adds.
As the recession lingers on, the demands on business are unrelenting. On the one hand, the need to improve efficiency and reduce costs, on the other the need to innovate in order to differentiate from the competition.
As a supplier of secondary packaging solutions to the food industry, Endoline is able to contribute on both counts with its high quality secondary packaging solutions. Innovation in this sector is driven significantly by the retailers, whose productivity is determined largely by the efficiency of its supply chain. The prevailing trend by retailers to make widespread use of shelf ready packaging is easy to understand in terms of operational efficiency, and Endoline has worked with both food producers and board manufacturers to engineer innovative new products designed to work efficiently at high levels of productivity with SRPs.
