Econocorp Unveils A New Semi-Automatic Case Packer

At Pack Expo, Booth # S202
The Econopacker Automates Product Handling

RANDOLPH, MA (August, 2002) - ECONOCORP, Inc., a leading manufacturer of moderate and lower speed cartoning, tray forming and case packing equipment exhibits their newest system; the ECONOPACKER, a cost effective and simple semi-automatic case packing solution at Pack Expo, Booth #S202.

ECONOCORP's semi-automatic ECONOPACKER case packer provides a lower cost, first step to reducing labor and automating case packing. Typical uses include case packing of all types of multi-packed cartoned and canned products.

The ergonomically friendly machine controls the flow and grouping of product automatically, eliminating miscounts due to human error. For example, cartons or cans enter the collating/up stacking area of the Econopacker at random via the infeed belt conveyor. The Econopacker will stack product into the appropriate pack pattern matrix. The operator simply has to place a case into position by positioning the open end over the automatic loading funnel. The loading of product automatically into the positioned case is then initiated by pressing a foot pedal. The case is then pneumatically lowered from the loading area onto its bottom and is then transferred via the exit conveyor to be top and bottom taped.

With prices starting at $ 19,900, USD, Mark Jacobson, ECONOCORP Vice President says, "We saw a niche that existed between manual case packing and totally automated solutions.

The Econopacker advantages include:
o Labor savings
o Ergonomically friendly design
o Eliminates miscounts due to human error

The ECONOSEAL® product line includes horizontal, vertical and tray-style cartoning, and horizontal case packing. Econocorp, Inc. builds user-friendly equipment at less cost.
