Case packaging is the process of packing products into cases for storage, transportation, and distribution. Cases are typically made of cardboard, paperboard, or plastic and are used to protect and contain products during transportation and storage. Case packaging is often used for products that are fragile, have a long shelf life, or need to be protected from damage. It is also used for products that are sold in bulk, such as boxes of cereal or cases of soda. Case packaging can be done manually or through the use of automated packaging systems, such as alligator automation systems. The type of case packaging used will depend on the size and shape of the product, as well as the material and design of the case.
Alligator automation systems are automated packaging machines that are used to pack products into cases. These systems typically consist of a case erector and a pick and place mechanism. The case erector is used to assemble and form the case, while the pick and place mechanism is used to place the product into the case. These systems can be customized to meet the specific requirements of the customer, such as the size and shape of the product and the type of case being used. They are commonly used in a variety of industries, including food, beverage, pharmaceutical, and consumer goods. Alligator automation systems are designed to increase efficiency and reduce labor costs by automating the packaging process.
