A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11897225B2) discloses an apparatus designed for inserting insulating liner panels into a rectangular box to create a thermally insulated container. The apparatus consists of multiple stations, including a flap opening assembly, liner panel insertion assemblies, a box transfer system, and a flap guide system. The first station opens the lid flaps of the box, while the second and third stations insert the first and second liner panels into the box, respectively. The apparatus streamlines the process of creating thermally insulated containers by automating the insertion of liner panels in an efficient and precise manner.

Furthermore, the patent details additional features of the apparatus, such as a liner panel magazine assembly that holds and provides liner panels to the insertion stations, a folding assembly for folding end segments of the liner panels, and a panel engagement mechanism for precise handling of the liner panels during insertion. The apparatus also includes a packing ram for ensuring the liner panels are securely inserted into the box. These features work together to enhance the efficiency and accuracy of the insulation process, ensuring that the liner panels are correctly positioned within the box to provide optimal thermal insulation. Overall, the patented apparatus offers a comprehensive solution for automating the creation of thermally insulated containers, improving productivity and consistency in the manufacturing process.
