How to Choose the Right Equipment

Determining the right secondary packaging equipment for your needs depends on several factors. Consider the following:

- Product Size and Shape: The dimensions and shape of your product can influence whether topload, endload, or wraparound cartoners, as well as the type of case packing or palletizing solutions, are most suitable.

- Production Volume: Evaluate your daily or hourly production needs. High-volume operations may benefit from the efficiency of robotic case packing and palletizing.

- Product Handling Requirements: Fragile or irregularly shaped products may require the gentle handling offered by specific cartoners or customizable robotic case packing and palletizing solutions.

- Future Scalability: Consider equipment that can grow with your business, offering modularity or adjustable settings for different products, as well as intermittent and continuous motion cartoners.

- Integration with Existing Lines: Ensure the equipment can be integrated with your existing primary packaging machines and conveyor systems for a seamless operation. Viking Masek provides seamless integration with common platforms including Allen Bradley and Siemens controls to provide turnkey packaging solutions.
