Lantech Case Erectors

If you are thinking about adding an element of technology to your packing process, look no further than a Lantech Case Erector. Having been trading since 1972, and with over 80,000 machines installed worldwide, the Lantech Case Erectors are a industry-leading packaging automation solution!

 

Case Erectors, also known as ‘box makers’, are the ideal automation solution for companies looking to improve their operation efficiency, and guarantee consistency of box erection. The Lantech Case Erectors use suction pads to ‘grip’ the box, erect it, and then seal the bottom. Please click here to see a short video of a machine in operation.

 

Due to the bespoke nature of the Lantech Case Erectors, virtually anything can be added or removed from a design – it is literally built around your specific requirements, and available space. Did you know you can even specify the colour of the paint to be in-line with your brand!

 

As a starting point, we list the C-300 and C-400 standard Case Erectors. When considering the model that might be best suited, you first need to assess how many carton you use and their typical size. There is a full list of common considerations listed further down the page too.

 

The Lantech C-300 Case Erector is specifically designed to erect 10 cartons per minute, with the C-400 erecting 8. The difference here is driven by the size of the cartons each model is designed to erect.

 

During the process of spec-ing a Lantech Case Erector, we would strongly recommend multiple site visits, and this will be co-ordinated through one of our Packaging Pro’s, who will assess your process, and recommend a solution to you.

The Lantech C-300 Case Erector is specifically designed to erect 10 cartons per minute, with the C-400 erecting 8. The difference here is driven by the size of the cartons each model is designed to erect. Please see the below breakdown;

 

The C-300 Case Erector will erect 10 cartons per minute, based on the following spec of cartons:

FEFCO 0200 & 0201
Single Wall Cartons – B & C flutes
Minimum carton size: L=200mm W=150mm C=150mm
Maximum carton size: L=500mm W=350mm C=600mm

 

The C-400 Case Erector will erect 8 cartons per minute, based on the following spec of cartons:

FEFCO 0200 & 0201
Single Wall Cartons – B & C flutes
Minimum carton size: L=200mm W=150mm C=250mm
Maximum carton size: L=620mm W=450mm C=650mm

 

During the process of spec-ing a Lantech Case Erector, we would strongly recommend multiple site visits, and this will be co-ordinated through one of our Packaging Pro’s, who will assess your process, and recommend a solution to you.

 

 

Eco credentials

From an eco-friendly point of view, the Lantech Case Erectors come with varying tape options. Our Paper E-Tape is suitable for use on both the C-300 and C-400 models. You also need to factor in the number of cartons that are wasted by not being erected correctly. This may run into the hundreds when you consider a 24-hour operation, and this is a variable that will differ by company.

 

 

Lantech Case Erector Warranty

Both the C-300 and C-400 Case Erectors come with a 3 year warranty, and with an average of 99% up-time availability on both models, you’ll start to see savings straight away.

 

Despite the technology within the Case Erectors, they really are ‘plug and play’, with just 3 buttons to push – start, stop and emergency stop.

 

 

So, what are the common considerations when considering a Case Erector?

1. What is your existing case erecting process, and how many workers are needed to erect the amount of cases needed?
2. What is your existing case-erection process and how many FTEs are required?
3. How many cartons do you erect per hour/day/shift?
4. In how many shifts is work done per day?
5. How many different carton sizes do you use (min./max. case sizes)?
6. Have the cases been printed on?
7. Which types of cartons are used (with/without top flaps, display, score lines, etc.)?
8. How are the cartons sealed?
9. Do you have problems with product damage during transport? If so, what is the cause?
10. Will the machine be installed in a packaging line or as a freestanding unit?
11. What is the layout of the packaging environment/line?
12. How many packaging lines are there?
