Wraparound Corrugate Packaging Machines
Savings with Wraparound Packaging

With wraparound technology, if the case has a low profile (which is common), the flaps will be on the smallest sides,  and as they will stay on the largest sides with a case, there is a substantial saving with the wraparound.

Example:  case,  width 12¨, length 18 inches, height 8 inches.
Traditional RSC :        formula is : (width + height) x (length + width) x 2 = (12 + 8) X (18 + 12) x 2 =  1200  sq. inch
Wraparound Case: formula  (height + width) x (length + height) x 2 = (8 + 12) + (18 + 8) X 2 =  1040 sq.inch

The savings in corrugated will be (1200- 1040)/ 1200 =  13 %

There is also some savings in raw materials as the RSC has to be cut, folded, and glued prior to delivery,  but the wraparound is delivered as a flat piece of corrugated.


Wraparound Process

Unlike traditional RSCs that are folded and glued, wraparound case packers use a completely flat die-cut blank.The first folds are executed as the blank is loaded into the bucket conveyor. After the product is loaded into the blank, the side tabs are folded in, and a top flap is folded and glued against the back side of the case. The side flaps from the top side of the case are then glued and folded down, completing the process. This process eliminates the need for expensive pre-folded and glued RSCa.
