In response to demand from food packers wanting to code secondary flat-pack boxes and cartons, Rotech will unveil its new RF-Box Feeder at the show. One of five exhibits on its stand, the RF-Box Feeder enables users to pre-mark flat cases prior to erection and filling. Rates vary depending on the box length and marking technology used, but can reach up to 150 boxes a minute.

“Today’s grocery market is evolving with discount, online and convenience emerging as the growth areas,”​ says Rotech director Richard Pether. “Consequently, there’s higher demand for mixed cases and ‘little and often’ deliveries to a wider number of locations, which makes logistical operations, and secondary packaging especially, much more complex.”

All these challenges increase the chance of human error as well as slowing secondary packing.

The Rotech offline system overcomes this problem by ensuring food operators have a supply of boxes that are pre-marked with accurate information about their contents and their destination.
