Case Study

Loveshaw's Washdown Stainless Steel Case Sealer

LD-XSS

FEATURED PRODUCT:

LDXss-RTE Semi-Automatic, Stainless Steel, Top and Bottom Case Sealer (Operator-Fed) 

CASE PRESENTED: 

We were invited by an authorized Little David® distributor, Crawford Packaging, located in Ontario, Canada to visit a dairy plant to evaluate the benefits of a box taper.

The process for packing and sealing the box was a manual, two-step sealing process.  First, the operators manually bottom taped the boxes and stacked them up to 500 cartons at a time.   Second, the operator would take the bottom sealed box, load the product and tape the top of the case.

The manual taping produced three issues:  

  • Inconsistent closures
  • Inconsistent throughput (operator dependent)
  • Ergonomic concerns from the operators (repeated hand motions)

RESULTS: 

After an onsite demonstration and subsequent purchase of the LDXss RTE, which top and bottom seals the case, the company noted the following results:

  • Consistent sealing of cases
  • Increased throughput: faster movement of the product through the packing station eliminates any back-ups
  • Significantly reduced staff concerns relating to ergonomics of hand taping
  • Easier maintenance:  the LDXss RTE stainless steel design allows the operator to leave the machine on the production floor for complete wash-down at shift end and be in CFIA compliance.
