Vertical Case Transport System (VCTS)

Squid Ink Eastey Vertical Case Transport System (VCTS) for off off-line case printing

Vertical Case Transport System (VCTS)

Eastey’s Vertical Case Transport System allows users to print on two sides of a case eliminating the need for pre-printed cases or expensive labeling equipment and supplies. Adjustable width settings allow users to print on cases ranging in size from 10” x 10” up to 33” x 40”.

Automatic Operation

Designed for off-line case printing, the VCTS automatically feeds blank cases through a print station that is ideal for mounting hi-resolution inkjet printers and offers the ability to print virtually anywhere on either side of the case. Open access to printheads allows for easy maintenance and quick adjustments. The VCTS also features an input hopper that can hold up to 90 flat single wall cases and can easily be reloaded by one person.

Easy to Program

The VCTS includes a programmable counter that keeps track of batch quantities, rate of operation, and elapsed run time, allowing users the ability to customize case runs. The system can be easily programmed to shut down when the maximum count is reached. The VCTS batch counter is the ideal solution for users looking to print a message on specific number of cases while eliminating the need for manual case counting.
