Capable of speeds up to 25 cases per minute, the equipment can be custom-designed for wrap around packing, minimising labour requirements and increasing production output.


Versapack Case Loader  The VersapackTM system was developed based on the success of Endoline's 220 Case Erector Series and Quin System's RthetaTM high speed picking head. At up to 100 picks per minute and speeds of 20 cases per minute, the VersapackTM system provides outstanding performance in the automation of end-of-line packaging. The system is ideal for the packing of various products in the food industry including ready meals, biscuits, snacks, tea, coffee and fresh and frozen goods. With its modular nature, compact dimensions and low and high speed options, Endoline's VersapackTM system will replace the high-cost, labour intensive case packing operations that can often be the cause of employees' repetitive strain injuries.
