B+ Equipment introduces Ultipack, a packaging solution that wedges a corrugated blank piece over the articles in a box for shipment. This product is suitable for protecting cosmetics, drugs, electronics, and other retail items. It offers consistent, protective, and cost-efficient packaging compared to other protective packaging methods, such as void fill materials. The automated packaging line comprises three machines that can pack an average of 10 boxes per minute. It works with trays or RSC boxes and supports any box footprint or height.
The Ultipack wedging concept glues a distortable corrugated blank (the wedge) inside the box with hot-melt to secure the articles for protective shipping. It provides the same protection capability regardless of machine throughput, box-filling ratio, article weight, or storage time after shipping.
The Ultipack is an economical solution, as the corrugated wedges cost on average four times less than void fill material, and the tray and lid combination costs on average 20 percent less than a standard RSC box. With tear tape or perforations on the lid and the wedge, Ultipack boxes require no cutter for opening. Transport documents, invoices or advertisement papers can be inserted above the wedge (and under the lid) to prevent loss or mixing with the articles. Also, the Ultipack box is made only of corrugated blanks, which makes it easy to fold and discard.
The line consists of three machines: a Tray Erector or Case Former, the Ultipack Wedging Machine, and a Lidding Machine. This automated, high-speed line requires little floor space, accepts multi-height boxes, automatically closes boxes, requires little maintenance, and saves energy and operating costs.
