Taping Machine Systems In Focus: Delicate Food

In our past blog posts, we have looked at taping machine systems for bookbinding and electronics. Today, we are going to look at BestPack’s custom made packaging solution for food—delicate food products to be exact. Originally, it was designed for packaging tostadas (toast) so that they would not crack while being packed. Of course, this taping machine system is not limited to packing toast. With this packaging solution, delicate food items can now be automatically packed with ease.

Let us look at three stages of this system.

1. Carton Erecting. The carton is erected by a machine called ELVP erector. This is an L-Type erector which uses a pin system to efficiently erect the cartons for packaging.

2. Packaging and Sealing. After the carton is erected, it is conveyed to the packaging station where individually bunched tostadas (or whatever it is that is being packed) are packed using BestPack’s exclusive side packing case packer. Afterwards, the case is sealed using one of the company’s standard flagship carton sealers, otherwise known as taping machine.

3. Palletizing. In this final stage of the process, the cases are palletized using a low-profile palletizer. It is then stretchwrapped and prepared for shipping.

Next week, we will zoom in on BestPack’s taping machine system for packing furniture. Make sure to come back and check us out!
