Product Handling Concepts Introduces VantageCaser™, A New High-Speed Case Packer

APPLETON, WIS. (August 28, 2013) —Product Handling Concepts, LLC (PHC), a manufacturer of custom designed and manufactured conveying and product handling equipment based in Appleton, Wis., today introduced VantageCaser™, a high-speed industrial case packer. VantageCaser represents a major milestone in the industry and signals PHC’s capabilities as an innovative, turnkey solutions provider.

VantageCaser, which will be available in the first quarter of 2014, is designed to deliver significant improvements in efficiency for applications that require horizontal case packing. The product gives manufacturers 10% faster speed than existing equipment and seamless integration with upstream equipment. This means increased throughput, higher productivity and faster return on investment for manufacturers.

Other features include the ability to accommodate a broader range of case and product sizes, fewer change-parts, a flexible layout with robotic KDF loader and highly innovative, large-access clamshell shrink-to-fit “ErgoGuard™” guarding.

VantageCaser is designed in partnership with ProVantage, an industrial controls designer and systems integrator based in Ancaster, Ontario, Canada.

“The VantageCaser is an integral step for providing our customers with a more complete product handling solution,” said Russ Salzer, general manager of PHC. “The partnership with ProVantage and leveraging both companies diverse expertise will significantly boost our ability to deliver major product innovations and enhancements in our performance and service,” he said. “Until today, no suppliers in the market have collaborated to this degree. Our sole focus is on delivering more value to our customers,” he added.

Robert Hattin, CEO of ProVantage, said the partnership with PHC, and its first joint product launch, gives his company options to broaden its value to customers. “Working closely with PHC means we have the freedom to be creative with our product offering and bring to the market the kind of improvements and innovations customers have wanted,” he said.
