Ipack solutions has sold three Ergosa 8C universal packing systems to major folding carton manufacturers.

The units give carton makers the capability to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and safety of their end-of-line packing operations.

Boxpak Limited of Newtownabbey, Northern Ireland, was the first UK company to install the universal packing solution, adding it to the delivery of a high-performance Bobst folder-gluer line.

The installed units consist of an Impack Ergosa 8C universal packer in-line with an Impack IN-2.3A carton turner and are suitable for addition to any make of folder-gluer. Impack’s Ergosa 8C universal packer bridges the gap between semi-automatic and automatic packers in the folding carton market, delivering the flexibility of the former and the performance of the latter, according to ipack.

The Impack carton turner IN-2.3A can rotate all types of cartons by 90 degrees depending on the desired packing specification. The unit also allows the straight through passage of 4/6 corner boxes without the need to remove it from the line. Both the packer and carton turner are designed and manufactured by Impack Packaging of Canada, specialists in auxiliary equipment for carton folder-gluer lines.

Boxpak is one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of printed folded cartons, supplying clients throughout the UK and Europe. John Hall, Managing Director of ipack solutions, said: “There are real benefits to be had from the ergonomics of the Ergosa compared to current hand packing systems. Boxpak are finding that it is easy to use and very quick and simple to set, yet it really boosts end-of-line performance. The units improve the performance, quality and flexibility of users’ packing operations and they also reduce the risk of operators suffering from repetitive strain injury (RSI).”

Two of the lines sold have been installed at a major English carton maker about whom John Hall said: “That particular customer prefers not to be identified because they are finding that the Ergosa 8C is such a boon that they don’t want the secret to get out!”
