Following the successful installation of a latest generation Latitude casemaker in 2018, UK-based Cases24 has committed to a significant investment in a further step change in operational excellence and efficiency. The Midlands based business has invested in a new state of the art materials handling line setup, which will increase casemaking capacity and deliver increased service levels even during the busiest periods of the year.
The package of new automation equipment includes a second Dücker double pallet inserter and pallet robot, building changes, plastic belt conveyors, new automated strapping lines and superior operational control, courtesy of Dücker’s Ascor data tracking system. A main feature of this investment will be a 4.8m wide Stabiltrack® conveyor system, enabling efficient throughput of finished goods from casemakers to strappers, enabling optimum casemaker uptime.
Cases24 is a well positioned ‘trade only’ case supplier operating together with Board24 in Coalville, offering trade customers across the UK high volume glued cases in a variety of specifications backed by excellent reliability and speed to market.
This latest investment, driven by strong customer demand and market growth, will ensure all four casemakers operate at full productivity, removing a bottleneck caused by one of the current pallet inserter lines.
