IMPACK PACKAGING, founded in 2001, designs and manufactures a wide range
of innovative, productive, cost effective and ergonomic packing
solutions for today’s folding carton and micro flute folder gluer
Initially challenged by local Canadian folding carton manufacturers to
reduce work related injuries suffered by folder gluer packing personnel,
IMPACK successfully answered that challenge by designing and
manufacturing equipment solutions that in addition to address workplace
health and safety issues, also provides increased productivity and
IMPACK offers standard packing systems for typical folder gluer
operations from short to long run and low to high speed applications, as
well as specifically customized solutions to handle unconventional
applications and productions.
folder gluer packer was developed to reduce unnecessary movements made
by packing personnel, increase ergonomics and organizes the packing
method in a more fluid motion that greatly improves the packing
personnel’s efficiency. The ERGOSA UNIVERSAL™
packing method removes stress from the packing personnel’s joints,
tendons and wrist, as the cartons are slid into the case without any
lifting, resulting in less injuries and greater packing efficiency.
attachments when attached to the ERGOSA UNIVERSAL™
packer, allows for easy packing of medium to larger 4 and 6 corner
cartons when the traditional ERGOSA™
sliding method is less suitable, some pre-alternated lock bottom
cartons, as well as very small straight line boxes. The exit end of the
ERGOSA can also be equipped with four flap case flap closing devices, as
well as case marking systems.
is a single row, single level automatic packer for folding cartons,
micro fluted cartons and some corrugated boxes. The VIRTUO™
automatic folder gluer packer can pack straight line, 4 & 6 corners, as
well as pre-alternated lock bottom cartons. The straight through packing
approach of the VIRTUO™,
with a fix feeding, counting and separation section, combined with a
vertical corrugated case descent, allows for high performance packing of
small to very large boxes. The VIRTUO™
can handle, recovered open top lock bottom corrugated cases, corrugated
cases with or without top flaps and the bottom flaps do not require
taping prior to packing. The case feeding of empty corrugated cases into
is done automatically from the top and the filled cases are ejected
automatically from the back of the packer, in straight line with the
gluer, to a taping device or conveying system.
IMPACK also specialises in preconditioning systems to prepare the carton
or box shingles exiting the folder gluer for packing. IMPACK offers
various shingle turning, as well as batch alternating devices.
In addition to the existing IN 1.6 and IN 2.0 turning system, IMPACK as
now introduced the new patented IN 3.0 CARTON TURNER which allows
turning of carton or box shingles exiting the folder gluer compression
section, right or left or flow straight through, and enter into a
or packers from other manufacturers, without the need to move the
packing system from the centerline of the gluer, reducing start-up and
make ready time.
The patented MFA™
batch inverting system inverts auto/lock bottom folding carton boxes in
preset counted batches for packing into corrugated cases with the
packers or by hand. The MFA™
allows for straight through passage of the carton shingle when batch
inverting is not required without the need to remove the unit, to
produce other types of cartons.
IMPACK’ solutions are modular and can be installed in several possible
configurations to meet each customer’s specific needs and situation.
With continuous investments in R&D to developed new technologies and
equipment, IMPACK is the leading expert in folder gluer packing
