Egging on industry success: Endoline slashes size of its case erector

Endoline Machinery, one of the UK’s leading end of line systems manufacturers, has launched a brand new slimline Case Erector – which is almost half the width of current case erecting systems, and the narrowest on the market.

This new-look machine was debuted at the PPMA Show last week.

Initially designed to work with grading, packing and processing machines within the egg industry, where Endoline have seen sales boom for its kit, the new, compact 2518 Case Erector is suitable for any food manufacturer where space is at a premium.

Endoline designed the 2518 Case Erector to be integrated into the egg grading, packing and processing equipment of globally renowned machinery manufacture, Moba.

“For many years our case erectors have worked well alongside egg packing equipment,” explained Andrew Yates, sales director for Endoline Machinery. “However, with 34 million eggs consumed in the UK each day, the egg industry is booming and, to fully capitalise on this, we recognised the need to create a universally recognised system which would meet egg packing machinery specifications exactly.”

Integral to the design are technical components engineered to connect directly with Moba equipment and Endoline have synchronised several key features, including the control and alarm panels. The 2518 Case Erector can be seamlessly integrated to work with all egg packing systems, for an inline, fully automated turnkey operation, enhancing the customer experience while enabling them to become even more efficient.

With an approximate 40 per cent width reduction on Endoline’s standard case erectors, the 2518 Case Erector measures just 1m wide by 2m long. With the ability to handle any of the required case size ranges, at a speed of up to 10 cases per minute, the machine has been fitted with Endoline’s dual opposing vacuum system to ensure heavy cases are opened positively from both sides, eliminating tearing or issues associated with glue migration on new cases.

The 2518 case erector is also suitable for customers with space constraints, an issue which is particularly common in the UK as there are a lot of companies who want to automate, but simply don’t have the space.
