Case Packing

At ECONOCORP Inc., we have created case packing equipment solutions to meet the diversified needs of our clients. Some of our products include semi-automatic horizontal case packers, automatic carton packers and wrap-around systems for cartons, trays and cases. Each piece of equipment we design is made to the highest quality standards, with focus on user-friendly functions that are simple to operate and provide cost-effective maintenance for our clients.

Our case packer equipment is designed to offer automated solutions for low to moderate production needs for a variety of manufacturing companies. The ultimate goal is to help our clients increase their production while saving on time and labor costs with equipment that is easy to use and requires low maintenance. Our most popular case packing equipment includes:

Our case packing equipment is sturdy and is made with heavy duty construction, including caster mounting. Although our standard equipment is designed to handle cases/cartons within set measurement standards, we also have equipment to handle cartons that are outside of the normal measurement perimeters upon request.

Our case packing equipment solutions are the cornerstone of our business. The ECONOSEAL product line that was created in the late 1960′s was so successful that we changed our name to ECONOCORP Inc. in 1976 to eliminate confusion for our clients. Although we now offer many other types of equipment, case packing still is a large part of our product line and some of our most popular products.
