Automatic Packaging for Faster Fulfillment
The Bell and Howell CartonWrap automatic packaging system dynamically creates ready-to-ship packages for the e-Commerce fulfillment market. The system automates boxing and labeling — two time-consuming parts of any e-Commerce fulfillment. It also processes up to 1000 boxes per hour — all without manual labor.
In addition, CartonWrap is the first system of its kind to deliver full color variable printing onto the variably sized pack, allowing fulfillment operations to eliminate all brand-specific stock and use a single corrugated for all brands. This “packvertizing” also allows companies to print personalized messages onto the inside or outside of each package for one-to-one marketing.
First, the items feed into CartonWrap via an induction conveyor. Here, the dimensions automatically scan or retrieve from a database.
A stack of fanfold corrugate cuts the cardboard, which creates the perfectly-sized box.
The box then automatically forms around the product, where it is then sealed, weighed and labeled. This eliminates the need for manual labor and void filler.
