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.
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.
Corrugated packaging is the standard method to pack and ship goods. Corrugated packaging material comes in many different flute configurations and a wide variety of strengths. Board strength is either specified in ECT (edge crush test) or LBS (Mullen burst strength).
The two testing methods are different and the application will dictate which design may have an advantage over the other. In general the ECT designed corrugated will have less material and come in at a lower cost compared to the equilivent Mullen burst test material.
Advantages to each:
- Less material
- Based on stacking strength
- Lighter weight
- Better for rough handling
- Better on overstuffed cartons
- Based on side wall burst strength
