Is Ergopack is right for you? Answer the questions below to find out.

Meet Demand for More Product

Currently, many manufacturers have demand for greater production rates. A Combi Ergopack hand packing station can increase your productivity up to 30 percent over manual hand packing. Consider the following:

  • What is your current case per minute?
  • What is your case-per-minute goal?

Efficient and durable, the Ergopack line raises the standard for hand packing productivity. The productivity of the innovative Combi Ergopack® has been raised with the addition of our side-belt driven, high speed case erectors. Now an even larger variety of product sizes, shapes, weights and materials can be quickly and easily packed in a larger range of case sizes at speeds up to 30 cases per minute.

Do You Need an Ergonomic Solution for Packaging?

Ergonomic packing operations reduce physical stressors associated with manual hand packing. This can result in lower worker’s compensation costs and increased profits from greater productivity. Are you:

  • Handling short runs of different products?
  • Handling heavy or unwieldy cases?

The Ergopack Hand Packing Station features adjustable legs and components that put products in easy reach. This minimizes wrist movement, reducing the threat of repetitive motion injuries and medical costs associated with treatment.

The Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation offers safety grants up to $40,000 to purchase equipment, like an Ergopack packing station, that substantially reduces or eliminates injuries and illnesses associated with a particular task or operation. 

Do You Want to Be More Productive with Less Labor Costs?

If you have increased demand but need to keep labor costs down, look at the Combi Ergopack and consider the following:

  • How many people are involved in your packaging currently?
  • Ideally how many people would be involved?
  • Do you need to increase demand, but you’re not ready for dedicated automation?

Combi offers everything from semi-automatic to fully automatic packaging solutions. If you’re interested a robotic component for pick and place packing and moving to fully automated case packing operations, the Combi Ergobot is another solution to explore. 

Does Your Industry Need to Address Sanitary Concerns?

For companies with products requiring sanitary packaging equipment, there’s the Sanitary Ergopack. A first in the industry, the Sanitary Ergopack helps food manufacturers and pharmaceutical manufacturers, among others, to meet the highest levels of hygiene and safety in their production facilities.

Consider the following:

  • Do have applications that require wash down and/or NEMA 4?
  • Do you need an open design that allows water shedding?
  • Do you need to eliminate niches or hollows where water can pool and bacteria can grow?

The Sanitary Ergopack hand packing station combines a case erectorhand pack station and case sealer into a compact and cost-effective work cell featuring sanitary design principles.
