Packaging and labeling equipment is used to prepare products for retail, after production. Although many manufacturing facilities may be able to manufacture their packaging equipment themselves, it can save time and money for businesses to purchase the necessary machines instead. Packaging and labeling equipment ranges from conveyor-driven labelers to more complex systems such as those that use numbering equipment.
These machines can be used for a variety of products, including food, beverage, personal care, health, and beauty items. They can also be used in several industries, from small businesses to multinational companies. To help you understand the different types of packaging and labeling equipment available on the market, and how they can help you improve your business, we have compiled a list of some of the more common machines below.
Case erectors are used to prepare cases or trays so that they are ready for packaging. They come in either semi-automatic or fully automatic options, depending on the type of product being packaged and the needs of the business. The machines often feature clamps and glue to ensure cartons and trays stay together throughout the packaging process, but different carton erectors machines can be used depending on the amount of automation required. Case erectors are usually best for packages that will be filled with a single product type or multiple products that don’t require additional labeling or barcoding, such as canned goods. They can also be used for products that are already in a case or tray when they arrive at the packaging facility.
Conveyor-driven labelers are some of the most common machines used in the packaging and labeling industry. They are simple to operate and can be used for a variety of products. This type of labeling equipment uses a conveyor belt to move products through the machine, where they are then labeled. Depending on the model, conveyor-driven labelers can print or apply up to 4 colors at once. These systems are also easy to change over for different product lines. It is mostly used in the printing process that is done manually. The technology used must have an easy interface and a system that makes it easier to change from one product line to another.
Rotary Die Cutters
Rotary die cutters are some of the most commonly used packaging equipment. These machines use a cutting head that rotates while being controlled by a pneumatic cylinder. The rotary die cutter allows for many different types of cuts including straight lines, circles, and ovals, as well as others such as scallops or keyholes. This machine can be used for a variety of products, including cardstock, paperboard, and film. It is perfect for products that need to be packaged in a unique or customized way like greeting cards, invitations, and other paper-based products. Additionally, the rotary die cutter can be used to create packaging for products that are too large or bulky to fit into other machines, as well as those that are too small to be packaged on fully automated packaging lines.
Bottle Packers are used to place products into bottles efficiently and consistently. They come in many different shapes and sizes to accommodate a variety of bottle types and can be used for a wide range of products, including beverages, pharmaceuticals, oils, creams, lotions, sauces, and more. Bottle packers can be used in conjunction with Automatic Bottle Inspection (ABI) machines or by themselves. Depending on the product, it may be necessary to use a bottle packer in addition to an ABI machine because they can help reduce the amount of time spent inspecting bottles for broken seals and other problems.
