New Equipment for the cost of used???

Recently we have had many customers requesting used stretch wrapping equipment and or used case sealers. In our experience, most of the used equipment in the market needs extensive reconditioning and the cost becomes prohibitive. Packaging Equipment & Films has recently acquired a line of carton sealing and stretch wrapping equipment that meets the consumer demand for lower cost. Why buy a used taper or stretch wrapper when you can have a new machine with a warranty?
Carton Sealers start out at $2,850.00 + freight
Stretch wappers start out at $4,400.00 + freight
Please call use to discuss your needs.

Labeling the spirits

Last month a customer/supplier of printed digital labels contacted us for assistance on an application to apply labels to whiskey and vodka bottles for a start-up micro distillery.  Hand applying labels to the front and back of the bottle was a tedious and inconsistent process that was adding a significant amount of laber cost to their process. The volume was not enough to warrant an inline high speed application, due the batch size of each distilled spirit; also the bottle was taper styled glass container.

Packaging Solutions for Bottle Labeling

The solution was a table top label applicator, the Bottle-Matic II from Dispensa-Matic. This applicator is fully adjustable to handle both cylindrical and taper styled bottles and has the capability to apply one or two labels to the bottle. The production speed of the label applicator was more than enough to handle the filling and processing speed of the project and the customers requirements.

If you have a project that involves package labeling or labels, or need assistance with any packaging solution, please contact us at Packaging Equipment and Films Inc. at 317-773-8397.


Casing and Cartoning Machines are very common in industrial packaging and use either pressure sensitive packaging tape or hot melt glue for closure. The most common equipment type is a top and bottom case sealer with pressure sensitive tape. Many variations of this packaging machine are available for various style cartons. Carton erecting equipment is well suited for higher volume operations and can be justified in the 800+ carton per day range. Casing and Cartoning equipment can be broken down into two basic categories: Manual and Automatic.

Manual Casing & Cartoning Equipment

Manual equipment requires the operator to close the minor and major flaps on the corrugated and advance the box into the seal area. Speed is going to be product and operator dependent.

Automatic Casing & Cartoning Equipment

Automatic equipment is less labor intensive and the corrugated flaps will be folded and the carton advanced for sealing without assistance. Speed is carton length dependent but can be up to 50 cartons per minute.
