Our customer had struggled with vacuum-head, pick-and-place case packers for their pillow and stand-up, flexible pouches packed in a flat-pack case orientation for years.
They were then tasked with adding the ability to pack stand-up pouches in a vertical case orientation while maintaining the current, flat-pack orientation in one case packing system capable of running at 150 bags per minute without vacuum.
Our challenge was to provide a new case packing system able
to package both pillow-style and stand-up flexible pouches in
both vertical AND flat pack orientations in an RSC case without
vacuum. After extensive engineering effort and testing, we found

A new customer reached out to us for a solution to upgrade their case coding on a tight budget. They were a young company grappling with case coding demands from their new customers. As with most growing companies their cash flow was tight. They needed a coding system capable of applying high-quality barcodes and 2D codes onto their corrugated shipping cases with a 2” tall print at an affordable price.
Our challenge was to provide the ability to print a total of 2” print height in a cost conscious coder package that would be easy to install and operate and would require little maintenance which would keep the overall cost down.
