Annual Report to the Industry
Alliance Delivers Productivity
In 2018, Alliance helped a record number of companies achieve unprecedented levels of automation and productivity. Our ever-expanding product range continues to demonstrate throughput and uptime superior to the competition. Our engineers work closely with customers to design and deliver engineered solutions that eliminate manual labor and optimize productivity. Whether it is a line designed to produce over 700 e-commerce boxes per minute, or a line that can handle record-size jumbo and two-piece boxes, Alliance has you covered.
At the front end of Flexo lines, our high-speed feeding solutions are the clear choice for superior uptime and throughput. At the back end, the fully automated Raptor Robotic Palletizer systems build loads in a multitude of patterns at industry-leading speeds. Likewise, in the field of Rotary Die Cutting lines, our feeding and palletizing products set the standard. For Instance, the UltraPAL and RaptorPAL RDC palletizers build perfectly square loads at high speed.
All our systems have unique technical innovations such as bottom sheet systems that use vision technology to scan random size dunnage and automatically compute the exact placement location, or the patented TEDD sheet deceleration device in the UltraStack RDC Stacker/Palletizer that allows running at full speed without a shingle. Our Jumbo J&L Specialty Folder Gluer not only folds and glues boxes up to 210 inches (larger than any other SFG system), but, in conjunction with the Alliance Two-Piece Box option, the J&L can join two halves into one box, allowing Boxmakers to produce jumbo boxes using standard-size rotary die cutters. This system can also fold and glue multi-caliper boxes, economically placing the board thickness and strength where needed.
With operations and sales representatives around the world, our equipment placements in Latin America, Europe, and beyond have been very strong, bringing the same level of technical excellence and industry-leading performance to our customers on all continents.
Our fast-response team of full-service Customer Care professionals stands behind our systems and provides dedicated installation, training, service, parts and production support to our customers’.
Our “ReadyRESERVE” parts kits are designed to minimize downtime, and regionally stocked replacement parts can replenish your kits and/or quickly resolve a component failure.
We thank each of our customers for a great 2018 and we look forward to continuing to serve your needs in 2019.

Nadine Woodward and Derik Deis report Alliance Machine Systems plays an essential role in the paperboard packaging industry.
The Raptor is a fully automatic robotic load former with an integrated vision system. Advanced optical recognition technology identifies the exact location and skew of each bundle as it moves down the conveyor, allowing the robot to quickly grasp the bundle "on the fly" and accurately place it in its proper position with the load. The RAPTOR produces great load quality and can automatically insert both tie sheets and bottom sheets. The system sets up automatically, improves overall productivity and reduces risk of operator fatigue and injuries.
The recently introduced TRIMINATOR is a superior solution for Rotary Die Cut trim removal.
- Minimizes scrap getting through to customers
- Fast, automated set-up
- Advanced oscillation system
- Positive extraction force, superior to gravity-only systems
- Retrofit-able to existing RDC Stackers
