Pack Expo 2014 saw the introduction of the Raptor top-load case packer from Edson Packaging Machinery.

Pack Expo 2014 saw the introduction of the Raptor top-load case packer from Edson Packaging Machinery. Intended for pouches, bags, and flow-wrapped products, this new solution is targeted to co-packers and specialty product manufacturers looking to step up to semi-automatic or fully automatic case packing.

The Raptor is rated at up to 20 picks per minute—up to 10 cases per minute of flexible packaging. Options include integrated case erector and sealer for fully automatic operations. Its steel frame is designed for years of service. The machine’s small footprint (comparable to the area required to pack cases by hand) conserves floor space.

Changeover for different SKUs is streamlined in order to improve throughput and reduce downtime. The HMI is intuitive, making operations simple and troubleshooting fast. The Raptor is also compatible with a wide range of case types.

“Customers looking to expand business into new markets and to satisfy growing demand in existing markets are going to find the new Raptor is exactly what they are looking for,” said Jeff Werner, vice president of Technology for Edson. “The Raptor is a flexible and rugged machine that can grow in capability as product demand increases. A lot of engineering went into the machine to ensure this exceptional level of price and performance.”
