The Ergosa is Impack Packaging's most popular folder-gluer packer.
However, knowing which Ergosa is right for you may be hard to grasp at first glance.
Don't worry, in this article, we will cover the two different kinds of Ergosa packers we sell, and hopefully help you understand which one may best suit your production needs.
The Ergosa series consists of 2 different types: The Ergosa A and the Ergosa C.
Dating back to 2003, the Ergosa C was the first-ever Ergosa packer that we built here at IMPACK. As of 2021, we have built and sold over 210 units of the Ergosa C.
The Ergosa A on the other hand is the newer and younger version.
Let's dive into what makes both models unique and find how they can both serve your needs!
What is the Ergosa A?
The Ergosa A is a semi-automatic packer that greatly improves your staff's ergonomics and packing speed.
One of the outstanding attributes of the Ergosa A model is that it is highly configurable and adaptable to any type of production or box style. It is best suited for companies that are beginning their journey in the packaging industry.
Furthermore, its compact size allows it to adapt to any restricted space which is good for a company with limited factory floor space.
What's more, the Ergosa A includes an integrated IN2 box turner and offers 2 packing modes: a Horizontal Mode and a Pick & Place or Manual Mode.
Finally, it is compatible with folding cartons and corrugated boards and handles various small to medium-sized boxes.
Quick summary of the Ergosa A’s features:
Simple, economical, and compact semi-automatic packer that offers a big improvement in efficiency, ergonomics, and packing speed.
Offers 2 packing modes: Horizontal Mode and Pick & Place Mode. The Pick & Place Mode includes 1 manual packing station.
And has a pneumatic end-gate to help box accumulation and prevent box overflow.
Short setup time (<5 min).
Its ergonomic design allows the boxes to be slid into cases instead of being lifted. No loads are picked up, thus repetitive strain injuries (RSI) are reduced.
What is the Ergosa C?
The Ergosa C is a versatile packer with the perfect combination between a semi-automatic packer and an automatic packer.
Its versatility and modularity make it IMPACK’s most-sold packer!
In other words, the Ergosa C is the more advanced and versatile version in the Ergosa series that offers more configurations and multiple packing modes with several additional features and benefits that the Ergosa A does not offer.
Like the Ergosa A, the Ergosa C is compatible with folding cartons and corrugated board boxes and includes all the features and benefits that an Ergosa A.
It offers one additional packing mode to the Ergosa A, making a total of 3 main packing modes available on the machine: the Horizontal Mode, the Pick & Place/Manual Mode, and an optional Vertical Mode.
It packs crash-lock/auto-bottom boxes faster and more ergonomically than an Ergosa A when combined with the MFA Batch Inverting Module.
Quick summary of the Ergosa C’s features:
High-performance, versatile, and modular semi-automatic packer with the performance of an automatic packer.
Compatible with folding cartons and corrugated board.
Compatible with all folder-gluer models.
Runs small to large box formats.
Runs straight-lines, 4/6 corners + runs crash lock/auto-bottom boxes faster and more ergonomically.

It offers multi-row, multi-layer packing capabilities.
It offers 3 main packing modes: Horizontal Mode, Pick & Place Mode + an optional Vertical Mode. The Pick & Place Mode includes 2 manual packing stations (2 MAE Modules) instead of one packing station as with the Ergosa A.
And a pneumatic end-gate to help box accumulation and prevent box overflow.
Short setup time (5-7 minutes depending on the mode).
Its ergonomic design allows the boxes to be slid into cases instead of being lifted. No loads are picked up and repetitive strain injuries (RSI) are reduced.
