Box erectors to streamline packaging

October 26, 2023 | Quinn Harker


In today’s fast-paced world, efficiency is key, and automating the packaging process can be a game-changer. Box erecting, also known as “case erecting” or “case erector,” is one industrial automation innovation that can optimize your packaging line to increase productivity and save you time, money, and resources. In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of automated box erecting and what unique advantages Vention provides.

What is automated box erecting?

Automated box erecting is a packaging solution that uses specialized machinery to form and assemble cardboard boxes. This process eliminates the need for dull and repetitive labor to erect boxes while ensuring consistent quality and predictable production. It is a valuable addition to production lines in various industries that require box packaging. The machinery works by taking flat, folded boxes and turning them into fully formed and taped boxes ready for product insertion.


Benefits of automated box erecting

  1. Improved efficiency: Erect and assemble boxes faster than manual labor. This efficiency reduces bottlenecks in your packaging line, increasing overall productivity.
  2. Cost saving: Save money by reducing manual labor and minimizing errors, resulting in long-term cost savings.
  3. Consistency: Rest assured that each box is formed and assembled to the same high standard, eliminating variations and ensuring a consistent and professional look to your packaging.
  4. Reduced labor demands: Reduces physical strain on workers, allowing them to focus on more complex tasks.
