CASE PACKING AND WRAP-AROUND MACHINES
These machines are traditionally used to realise cases for unpackaged or packaged products. The cases are usually made from corrugated cardboard. Vimco’s range offers:
CASE PACKING MACHINE for RSC
The case packing machine works a pre-glued blank known as a Regular Slotted Case (RSC). It forms the case to be filled, prepares the family of products, inserts them in the case and then closes and seals it. The case can be closed with either adhesive tape or glue.
The Wrap-Around Machines prepare the family of products and wrap the cardboard blank around it. This kind of case packing machine can realise classic “Wrap-Around” cases or the so-called “Display boxes” in two pieces (bottom and lid).
Over the years Vimco has developed a range of highly technological solutions with an extensive use of various types of robots following the technological development of robotic applications in the packaging world.
