Question 1/5

HOW MANY CASES PER MINUTE DO YOU NEED TO ERECT?

Less than 10 cpm.

This speed affords a cost-effective equipment solution for applications that require more throughput than manual case erecting provides.

10-20 cpm.

Provides throughput to meet increased needs, allow for downtime during change-overs, or to supply cases for shifts that cannot operate the equipment.

More than 20 cpm.

Speed matters. It’s important to match or exceed the pace of your downstream packaging operations. 

Not sure.

A Veritiv Packaging Equipment Specialist can help you determine the optimal speed for your packaging operation.

Not Listed/not sure.

A Veritiv Packaging Equipment Specialist can help you determine the most appropriate equipment for your packaging operation. 

Case erectors are engineered to fit a range of potential case sizes. If your case erector is too small for your application, it may not accommodate a large case. Simply put, small erectors can’t erect large cases and large erectors can’t erect smaller cases, so knowing the range of case sizes that need to be erected becomes critical to the selection of a suitable case erector.

Question 3/5

WILL YOUR CASE BOTTOMS REQUIRE TAPE OR GLUE SEALING?

(VIA ADD-ON GLUE OPTION)

Tape.

When case bottoms are taped, the case’s primary flaps are folded to meet each other, and tape is applied to form and seal the case bottom.

Glue.

When case bottoms are glued, glue is applied to the case’s primary flaps which are then folded to overlap each other, forming and sealing the case bottom.

Not sure.

A Veritiv Packaging Equipment Specialist can ensure your packaging materials and your equipment are the best fit for your operation.

Question 4/5

WILL YOUR CASE ERECTOR REQUIRE WASHDOWN COMPATIBILITY?

(VIA ADD-ON WASHDOWN-COMPATIBLE COMPONENTS)

Yes.

Sanitary concerns are critical for certain industries. Stainless steel construction and electrical enclosures permit easy washdown of your packaging equipment.

No.

No need to pay for a feature you don’t need, so if your packaging operation does not require washdown capabilities, this option is not necessary.

Not sure.

A Veritiv Packaging Equipment Specialist can help you determine the equipment requirements your packaging operation.

Question 5/5

ARE YOU SEEKING A CASE ERECTING SOLUTION THAT 

COMBINES CASE ERECTING, SEALING AND A HAND PACKING STATION?

(CASE ERECTOR + HAND PACKING STATION vs. CASE ERECTOR ONLY)

Yes, a combo please.

The integration of a hand packing station can increase your productivity up to 30 percent over manual hand packing.*

No combo.

If you’re not filling the cases at the same time they are being erected or if floorspace is limited, an integrated packing station is not necessary.

Not sure.

A Veritiv Packaging Equipment Specialist can help determine if an integrated hand packing station would increase your operation’s efficiency.
