All About Case Erector Equipment

A case erector is designed to erect a case from a flat case blank. This first step in the casing operation erects the cases and positions them on the caser for loading. A case erector is a machine designed to erect a case from flat folded, pre-scored, case blank made from corrugated containerboard or other material. A case erector takes one case blank from a magazine and forms or erects the case through the uses of mechanical devices, pneumatic devices, or a combination of both depending on the design of the machine.

Case erectors can be designed to seal the bottom of the case using either tape or glue, or not to seal the bottom of the case at all. Cases can be erected with either the case opening facing up or the case opening facing to the side. Special case erectors can be designed to erect bliss boxes, insert partitions into a box or case, or to erect a case and insert a bag into the case for a bag-in-box application (see Bag-in-box). Bliss boxes are created with a solid piece of containerboard that is formed to create the front, back, and bottom of the box. A bliss box case erector then inserts two additional pieces of containerboard to form the sides of the case. The two addition pieces are seal to flaps on the main portion of the case using hot melt glue.

At Frain there are 2 ways to buy a used machine:

As-Is: We cycle and video each machine so you can see it running. We believe so soundly in our equipment that if it is not everything you thought it would be, the machine may be returned in like condition within 14 days of shipment, with freight and crating prepaid, for a full refund of the equipment price.

Customized: Frain is the largest redeployment shop in North America with thousands of successful projects completed. Your machine is inspected by some of the best technicians in the industry for worn and damaged parts. The machine is then customized specifically for your project. Finally, we provide a factory acceptance test so that you can see the machine running your product. Start up and training is also available at your facility. Customized machines come with a 6 month warranty for all replaced parts.

Pre-Owned vs. Used Machinery

Used Machinery:

  • Ebay - Most equipment that Frain buys from Ebay is missing components. We are able to complete the machines because of our large parts department.
  • Intercompany Transfers - This rarely works because the machines are not what they thought they were, have usually been cannibalized or damaged and require a lot of internal paperwork.
  • Used equipment Dealers - Sold on a "where is, as is" basis. There is no guarantee that the machine will even run. The machine may have received a fresh coat of paint for the picture but that is it.
  • Used equipment Brokers - Brokers do not own any machinery. They are just trying to broker a deal between two parties. They only know what they were told about the equipment. A lot can go wrong and usually does.
  • Auctions - Sold "where is, as is". No returns. If someone else wants the machine you may over pay.
  • Internet Auctions - Unless you are prepared to spend a lot of time and resources reconditioning this equipment you will never get it into production.

Pre Owned Machinery:

  • Complete Descriptions & Photos - Know everything about the machine. Its capabilities, condition and history.
  • Through Inspections - At Frain our expert technicians spend an average of 34 hours on every machine cleaning, inspecting, and replacing missing or broken parts.
  • See it running before you buy - Frain puts every machine to power and videos it cycling and if possible running product.
  • Customized for your product - Frain's technicians can easily spend over 465 hours setting up a machine for a specific application and this is all they do.
  • Factory Acceptance Test - See your machine running your product before you buy. Have your maintenance and operators trained on site.
  • Guaranteed- Frain is the only vender that has a large shop with 36 technicians, a huge parts department and a dedicated field service group that can guarantee your satisfaction or your money back.

Price is always a very important part of any project. After watching numerous projects fail because they purchases AS-IS machines that ultimately cost more time and money than the project allowed for, Rich Frain decided to offer the "Successful Project Guarantee."

Because Frain has so many machines, we can also rent any machine.
