Boxxer handles round and square Jugs

Eagle Packaging Machinery has made some notable changes to its BOXXER Case Erector Loader Sealer System, having recently taken on a project that required case packing different shaped jugs.

The Boxxer is now able to automatically case pack round and square jugs, which is no mean feat as jugs are a difficult product to pack being heavy and requiring an accurate loading process.

Once the jugs are filled and capped, they enter the Boxxer through an in-feed conveyor. They are then stacked according to the pack pattern that has been chosen by the operator.

Eagle’s particular project required two separate pack patterns: packing four 1 gallon round jugs into a case, and two 2.5 gallon square jugs into another case.

While the jugs are being arranged, a knock-down case is being pulled from a hopper and formed.

While other machines typically use a drop packer that drops the jugs from the top of the box, risking potential damage to the containers and spillage, Eagle designed this loader sealer system to gently lift the product from the bottom using a servo driven mechanism.

Once the case is packed, it is then conveyed to the sealing station for tape or glue depending on the application.

Eagle says the method of packing both round and square jugs is precise and increases the overall production rates.
