If you’ve been considering a case erector for your production and manufacturing line, wonder no more.

Here are some benefits a case erector can offer your company.

1. Increase Productivity

The average worker erects three boxes every minute. A Bandma case erector machine can produce 10 cartons/min. That’s a productivity increase of 230%. Faster machines increase productivity even more. with a Bandma case erector machine, your time is reduced to only a few hours. You Think, what could you do with ten extra hours?

2. Reduces staff hours and Workman’s Comp Premiums

If you find you’re adding more workers to the packing area because they can’t do it all, you may discover that by having cartons/boxes being made quickly and easily, your packers work much more efficiently and easily. That means you can reduce the number of people working in the area, reduce overtime, or reassign the labor pool, so the extra people can work elsewhere and reduce claims.

3. Eliminate Double Taping and Reduce Tape Cost

Carton Sealers of Case erector machines only apply one strip of tape on the top & bottom of the box/cartons eliminating the extra cost of tape when manual laborers place 3 or 4 strips of tape per box. Going from 3″ tape to 2″ tape with the best quality tape and automation could be a possibility.

4. Enhanced Packaging

Without unnecessary and extra strips of tape on the box, the outside packaging looks more clean-cut and good presentable for on-the-shelf presentation.

5. Enhance Product Security

Automated carton sealers machines provide better and more consistent, or efficient carton security for transport of items, thus eliminating losses from pilferage.

6. Eliminate Product Damage and Reduces shipping damages

We talked about how hand erecting cases can often lead to unsquare boxes, which are weaker when stacked on a pallet. But boxes/cartons can withstand heavier weights, which means they are less prone to shipping damage. Using a case erector machine can help to ensure products arrive intact and undamaged. Using staples, glue, or strapping can sometimes damage products while being packaged.

7. Reduce repetitive strain and the possibility of injury

Anyone who performs the task again and again knows the pain of repetitive strain injury. And, believe it or not, you can get a large and nasty paper cut from a cardboard box. Using a case erector machine reduces the risk and chances of workers injuring themselves, or suffering repetitive strain injury.

8. Save on Corrugated

Bandma carton sealing machine has developed new solutions that can save your company up to 20% to 25% of your corrugated & packaging costs.

The main objection to case erectors is that they jam easily and cause downtime. When in a production line, erecting a high number of cases daily, this can be a major frustration. There are main primary reasons case erectors jam:

  1. Blanks are not fed correctly into the magazine.
  2. Irregularities in the blank from the carton supplier.
  3. The mechanical forces of opening the case and folding the flaps.
  4. Transporting the formed case through the machine.

Find out how to overcome these problems and what to look for in a case erector that will not only erect perfectly square cases, but will also not jam.

A case erector machine looks like an unnecessary extravagance. But when you look at the extra cost and time lost in unproductive work, overtime, product security, and injury, you begin to see the benefits of a case erector can bring to your company.
