This personal lubricant manufacturer and returning Pearson customer was in need of a solution that would automate the case erecting, packing, and sealing functions of their line, currently staffed by a team of four human operators. They were ready to invest in an automated solution they could count on, as sustaining staff was becoming increasingly difficult.
The solution would need to be flexible enough to handle product pack variations, with minimal disruption to production for changeovers between runs. The customer also hoped to improve operator proficiency across all the equipment, and communicated intent to integrate a uniform palletizer into the line in the future, ideally sourced from the same vendor.
And one final request… powder coat option? Because the machine would need to match their existing purple equipment.
