Semi-automatic case erectors are a packaging solution where an operator is required for manual hand pack lines. Semi-automatic case erectors are typically a more compact solution to case packaging. Semi-automatic case formers require an operator to open the case, while the erector fold the major and minor flaps then become a hands free pack station.
Types of Semi-Automatic Case Erectors
Vacuum Suction Cup System
Case erector that forms the case using a vacuum suction cup system. The suction cups hold the position in place while the corners are formed.
Pin & Dome System
Case erector that forms a case using a “pin and dome” system. The pin and dome system uses two steel pins that operate together with a steel dome. The dome injects pins into the flutes of the minor and major panel while a hinged plate grabs the outer panel to open the box. It can erect cases whether they are dusty, wet or have irregular surfaces.
