Automated Packaging Systems
WestRock’s Automated Packaging Systems division (APS) designs and manufactures a complete line of precision semi and fully-automatic case equipment, available in both standard and customized configurations which are able to handle a wide variety of products and line speeds. APS is strategically linked to our container division where we integrate our machines with our corrugated containers, providing value added solutions to our customers. We thoroughly evaluate your requirements and create the system which will do the best job of protecting and showcasing your products for a positive impact on your bottom line.
Our Meta® Systems' precision forming technology offers superior equipment flexibility and speed and sets a new standard in container strength and sustainability. Corrugated containers are formed around a fixed mandrel, minimizing case-skew and maximizing structural integrity. The resulting cases outperform comparable regular slotted cases (RSC's) with increased stacking strength, greater shelf differentiation, improved box performance and fully recyclable materials.
The Meta Systems technology improves your line performance with precisely formed cases, every time, in speeds of up to 55 cases per minute, with side or vertical product loading. Flat, corrugated blanks optimize your supply chain by reducing your storage footprint and minimizing both waste and transportation costs. No longer limited to just ordinary four-sided cases, this unique case forming process allows for three, four, five, six, seven or eight-sided cases and quick or minimal equipment change-over between box sizes with similar footprints.
