Bits and pieces of them magically appear everywhere in your office, long after you opened that box. Solving the problem of this mess has been key to the success of Ranpak Corp.
The company makes paper products to precisely fill those gaps in boxes, without the mess, and its new FillPak Voidfill System is changing how companies think about packaging.
Before FillPak, employees usually gauged by eye how much packing material should be put in a box to fill the space and protect an item during shipping. With the FillPak and AccuFill system, a box moves on a conveyor through the AccuFill sensor.
The machine scans the package and calculates how much material is needed to fill the space. The box continues to the FillPak station, where the precise amount of paper is distributed into the box. It’s simple and quick, and companies usually reduce their material usages by 10 percent to 25 percent with the system, saving them money, as well.
The FillPak station also allows several 100-cubic-foot boxes of Ranpak fanfold paper to be set up in the machine at once, which covers several days of production. This high-volume load capacity saves employees valuable time because they don’t have to walk across warehouses to get more material and reload paper into the machine.
If companies want to get even more high-tech, they can purchase Ranpak’s AutoFill system, which also closes and tapes the boxes shut. This system can fill 17 boxes per minute, while an operator can fill about five boxes per minute.
In addition to these money-, material- and time-saving features, Ranpak goes the extra mile for its customers. If a company chooses, Ranpak can print the company name or logo onto its paper to increase product name awareness when that company’s clients open their packages. And Ranpak’s paper packaging is recyclable, unlike packing peanuts.
All of these features have earned Ranpak a reputation of being a cutting-edge leader in the packaging industry, and it will continue working to improve packaging efficiency for its customers worldwide.
