Sealed Air's SpeedyPacker Insight foam-in-bag system now includes barcode-scanning capabilities. The new interface allows customers to utilize their existing unique product identification barcode to automatically initiate a pre-programmed package design and cushion sequence.
By automating this process, Sealed Air says that it has reduced the potential for under packaging, which can lead to damage as well as over packaging, which results in costly packaging waste. Because packing personnel no longer have to choose which cushions go with which product, the learning curve for new and seasonal labor is dramatically reduced.
To program the system, companies simply input design and sequence information into a spreadsheet, which is then uploaded onto the SpeedyPacker Insight system through a USB drive. A single USB drive can be used to download the information to multiple systems in high-volume operations, eliminating the need to manually program each system through the operator touch screen. Once the spreadsheet is loaded, the system can store unique information for tens of thousands of barcodes, while changes and additions can easily be made in seconds by downloading updated spreadsheets. To make the barcode programming as effortless as possible for customers, Sealed Air's representatives can perform a complete packaging audit of customer operations to ensure seamless integration.
The SpeedyPacker Insight system can produce traditional foam-in-bag cushions as well as continuous foam tubes (CFTs) for virtually any application.
