Case packer EC 12 – numerous benefits in its favor

The integration of a Track & Trace solution into the EC 12 is also an option, e.g., for the embossing and printing of both sealed sides of the case. Code readers verify that the correct code has been applied to the tertiary packaging.

Wide format range
The infinite format adjustment of the EC 12 enables the flexible processing of a variety of case sizes. The wide format range is also a convincing feature: small to large cartons and cases – all can be handled.

From cartons to packed cases ready for dispatch
The Case packer EC 12 groups, stacks, and packages pharmaceutical products in cases ready for dispatch – the cardboard blanks are erected, the cases filled, and then closed on two sides. Optional fittings for the EC 12 at the end of the line include a hot-melt gluing system, a labeling unit, and thermal transfer printing. 

Processing cases with a maximum length of 600 mm, the Case packer EC 12 attains a maximum output of 12 cases per minute and a maximum infeed of 500 cartons or 60 bundles per minute.

Reliable process and uninterrupted production
Integrated safety and warning devices enhance the reliability of the Case packer EC 12 – after all, every conveyor stop has an impact on the overall efficiency. Examples here are the jam control and overload monitoring. Disruptions in the packaging process trigger a warning.

In addition to the Case packer EC 12, “Uhlmann powered by pester pac automation” stands for three other end-of-line packaging machines: a stretch-banding machine, an overwrapper, and a combined unit comprising a case packer and a palletizing module. In terms of design, the SmartControl operating system, and the software, each end-of-line packaging machine permits full, seamless integration in an Uhlmann line.

Advantages of the EC 12 at a glance

Ready for dispatch

Flexible

Infinite format adjustment to cater for a wide range of carton sizes gives the EC 12 maximum packaging flexibility.

Ergonomic

GMP-compliant, ergonomic design gives the user good accessibility to the case magazine and permits easy cleaning of the working stations.

Economical

Fast, easy format changeovers contribute to high productivity.

Integrated

The SmartControl operating system, design, and software of the Case packer EC 12 allow full integration into an Uhlmann line.

Reliable

Integrated safety and warning systems, e.g., jam control and overload monitoring, ensure smooth processing.

User-friendly

Operation of the EC 12 via the central SmartControl operating system is intuitive and easy to understand.

The Case packer EC 12 in detail

The Case packer EC 12 offers flexible and extremely efficient tertiary pharmaceutical packaging. It quickly and accurately packages cartons or bundles in cases – the cardboard blanks are erected, the cases filled, and closed on two sides.


Efficient utilization of case volume
The erecting and turning station of the EC 12 allows full use of the case volume. A particular feature is the wide format range – small to large cartons and cases – everything is possible.

 

Excellent flexibility
As the Case Packer EC 12 offers infinite format adjustment, it can flexibly process various carton sizes. The minimum carton size is 30 x 12 x 66 mm, the maximum 400 x 150 x 250 mm. Case sizes range from 150 x 120 x 105 mm to 600 x 400 x 400 mm.

 

Fast format changeovers and reliable cleaning
The EC 12 is designed to allow fast, straightforward format changeovers and cleaning. The few, lightweight format parts are easily exchanged and the surfaces are easy to clean. This adds to the safety, saves time, and enhances productivity.

 

Central line control
Operation of the Case packer EC 12 is integrated into the line control system and controlled via the SmartControl operating system. The user-friendly interface also provides intuitive user guidance through all the production processes. After short initial instruction, all members of staff can confidently operate the machine.
