Lantech Uses ProfitPack™ Collaborative Automation to Bridge Machines and Human Judgement
Collaborative automation uses machines to do what they do best – automatically erect and seal cases on demand – and leaves what people do best to the operator – exercise expert human judgement when packing products into cases. When products are irregular or complex sometimes conventional pick and place automation doesn’t work or is too expensive. The ProfitPack is perfect for these situations.
“The ProfitPack fills an overlooked need within those small to midsize companies who want the cost savings and process improvement of automation, without eliminating the human touch,” said Mike Castelli, Lantech’s Director of Global Business Development for Case Handling Equipment.
The ProfitPack gives the operator control of the entire system. The case erector makes properly formed, square cases and automatically delivers them to the pack station. The operator inspects the products that are delivered by the integrated product conveyor, and once packed the operator releases the case to the sealing unit by a touch of the shutter release. The ProfitPack comes in left and right hand versions with a single or double pack station.
Lantech unique continuous control process of erecting cases reduces jams and ensures all cases erected are square, making them easier to pack, stack and ship safely to their destination.
In 1972, Lantech, LLC invented stretch wrap equipment and changed the way the world packages and protects its goods as they move about the planet. Billions of pallet loads are stretch wrapped are every year.
Although we’ve expanded our product line with case erectors and sealers, our mission remains the same – to help our customers ship their products so they reach their destinations in the same condition they were in when they left – and at the lowest cost.
