Cisco-Eagle specializes in material handling solutions for the paper and pulp converting industry. We have executed projects at locations nationwide that created greater efficiency, slashed costs, reduced errors, and increased throughput.

The issues are numerous. The logistics of Sorting, Accumulating, and Scheduling multiple SKU's from Converting Production can be challenging. We help our converting industry clients meet those challenges.

By utilizing the latest conveying equipment technology, we design and implement material handling systems with the accuracy and flexibility to meet the ever-changing needs of Converting production schedules.

We understand the needs of paper and pulp converting operations - and how to meet them

This understanding comes from decades of experience in this industry, where we've completed scores of projects from very focused and specialize to very large and enterprise-wide.

When cases of products come from just about anywhere, anytime, at any speed, it is essential that material handling equipment and packaging equipment work together. That integration requires communication, and not just at the equipment level.

Each of the conveyors, wrappers, case packers, tapers and palletizers require product to be delivered to them in a specific manner. To achieve a true System Integration as those products move, so too must the information move about any particular product. The Material Handling System Control must maintain continuous contact with Main System Control to make it possible for each product to be routed, stored, and accumulated to reach its proper unitized load destination. The journey begins at the converting lines where information is gathered about what products are being sent and ends in the warehouse with palletized loads, properly labeled for lift truck routing.

This understanding has allowed Cisco-Eagle to assist clients in integrating systems to meet those demands.

It all starts with design

Cisco-Eagle is not a manufacturer: we design systems based on your requirements, not on what we produce. That way, you get options on the kinds of material handling and packaging equipment to best serve your application. We specialize at blending technologies and equipment to create the optimum solution for you.

For instance - Caseless Poly Bag Handling Systems

Many mills find themselves in the position of needing to convey both cases and poly bags on the same equipment. Poly bags are relatively new, but they are gaining popularity in the industry. Eventually, we think most mills will want systems flexible enough to handle its loads, whether poly bag or in cartons.

Conventional conveyors typically cannot handle these loads, but Cisco-Eagle has designed multiple systems that do, utilizing EZ-Logic with 2" roller centers. The conveyor must be electronically zone controlled or use a sensor roller to achieve zero pressure in order to convey the poly bag.

The benefit is that you don't lose accumulation space. Zone breaks are normally needed to separate items on a conveyor. With this application, zone breaks are not necessary, which means more product can be placed on the conveyor.
