If your product is packaged in glass vials, you know the unique needs of this type of packaging. It’s fragile, it doesn’t always pack neatly, and even the slightest miscalculation during packing or shipping can be disastrous. Just think about one of the most common products that are packaged in glass vials – medications. Many expensive medications must be packaged in glass due to chemical reactions that might happen in other packaging materials. Losing a case of these medications due to breakage can cost a company thousands of dollars. This is why it is so important to use a high-quality case packer made for glass packaging when packing these types of items.

Here at Econocorp, we offer a full line of cartoners, tray formers, and case packers for all packaging types, including glass vials. We recommend that manufacturers using glass vial packaging consider our Spartan Cartoner with optional Bottle Knock Down for these applications.

The Versatile Spartan Cartoner

Our Spartan Cartoner is probably the most versatile of all our cartoners, boasting an up to 60 cartons/minute output rate, PLC controls, sanitary stainless steel construction, size customizations, and a multitude of optional features. Once the product is cartoned, the Spartan supports various closure methods, including hot glue, tuck, gable top, and even hot air. It’s no wonder why the Spartan is perfect for almost all packaging types.

Optional Bottle Knock Down Feature

The Spartan Cartoner’s optional Bottle Knock Down feature makes packaging glass vials a breeze by gently tipping them sideways at the load station to be inserted into an appropriate paper or corrugated carton. The packaged vial is then transported to the next machine on the production line, such as a case packer, manually or via conveyor belt. This method is tried-and-true for packaging delicate and valuable items with minimal loss.
