Automation Case Packing

Open house event on March 6, 2015 celebrating release of BlueWater's new F16.

Ready for take-off! On March 6, 2015, BlueWater Automation is hosting an open house at its Elmira, Ont.-base facility celebrating the release of its brand new F16-T Automatic Case Former.

The F16-T is a fully automatic, stainless-steel, open form frame, small footprint case former suitable for washdown environments. Its small footprint allows for seamless integration with both semi-automatic and automatic lines.

The F16-T is the first piece in a line of equipment BlueWater will be bringing to market, including its C-16 fully automatic case sealer.

The F16-T automatic case former will:

  • automatically index in a case blank;
  • confirm case Integrity;
  • positively fold all four bottom flaps;
  • seal with pressure sensitive tape;
  • complete at rates of up to 16 cases per minute.

The new “clean” designs are not only suitable for wet environments but more importantly, were designed from the ground up to meet strict sanitary specifications, manufactured by a team of individuals specifically trained and familiar with food safety requirements including HACCP (hazard analysis and critical control points), AMI, 3A and others.

Open House:
Date: March 3-6, 2015

Lunch and refreshments will be served

Tri-Mach facility
23 Donway Court
Elmira, ON, N3B 0B1

Also in attendance to answer questions on the F16’s design will be a few of strategic partners of BlueWater Automation, including teams from ShurTape, Xiplinx, Beckhoff Automation and FESTO. Please join us for key discussions around these technologies and their use in our machinery and the industry in general.

Please RSVP by Tuesday February 17, 2015 via e-mail at
