Expanding high-speed machine capabilities to include ultra-small cases

Pearson Packaging is pleased to announce the extension of its high-speed machine capabilities to include ultra-small cases. Both, the CE50 Case Erector and CS50 Case Sealer are now equipped to handle RSC cases as small as 5”x 3.5”x 3.5” (LWH).

Responding to a growing demand in the market place for smaller case sizes with less product count, Pearson Packaging Systems released its first case erector handling ultra-small cases at speeds of 35 units per minute in June of 2013. Since, the product’s success and industry feedback has driven the development of a faster machine to accommodate higher product rates into increasingly smaller cases.

Based on the original design of the CE50 Case Erector and CS40 Case Sealer, the new models retain its small footprint. Similarly, all major motions continue to be servo driven, which allows “on-the-fly” speed adjustments and increases overall equipment reliability over the use of traditional pneumatic controls. Furthermore, the entire family of Pearson CE50 Case Erectors and CS50 Case Sealers offer quick, tool-free changeover features with easy to read scales and HMI instructions. The Allen-Bradley PanelView 600 HMI with a user-optimized graphic interface supports efficient operation and troubleshooting for a wide range of operator skill levels.

“Shelf-ready boxes are generally fairly small posing unique challenges for packaging automation machines.”

“Single-facing, shelf-ready cases have seen a tremendous surge due to big box, convenience and dollar store initiatives to increase efficiencies in their supply chain, improve stocking speed, decrease use of shelf space and simplify disposal. Shelf-ready boxes are generally fairly small posing unique challenges for packaging automation machines. We are proud to offer a state-of-the art, reliable solution that is based on a proven machine design to help manufacturers meet the demanding requirements placed upon them,” explains Michael Senske, President and CEO.
