Flexible paper dunnage for heavier goods

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

Manufacturers and service providers who ship large, heavy, and fragile products can now benefit from the flexible PAPERplus Coiler² system from Storopack.

The machine can be run on demand or automatically.

The machine processes paper pads that are pre-formed by the PAPERplus Classic, PAPERplus Crossover, or PAPERplus Track paper cushioning machines – and turns them into coils of paper cushioning. Products weighing between 60 and 1,100 pounds can be protected and kept safe during transit.

The coils of paper cushioning are ideal for protecting heavy products such as mechanical and electronic parts. Depending on the size of the shipping goods, up to 200 cartons a day can be packed with coils of paper cushion using the PAPERplus Coiler².

Flexibly adjustable paper cushioning

The coils of paper cushion can be precisely tailored to the goods using a touch-screen display: the coil diameter, for instance, can be set between eight and 22 inches.

Users can choose from a variety of crimp densities and select whether they wish to have compact coils or whether they prefer looser coils. This guarantees an optimized use of packaging material.

Depending on need, the coils of paper are produced at the push of a button. The system can also be set to automatically produce new coils as soon as the previous one has been removed from the machine. It is also possible to pre-produce coils with the aid of a collecting container.

Automatically attached adhesive dots provide for a secure hold and enable the easy handling of the finished coil.

Employees can use the coils in a variety of ways – cushioning, filling, blocking and bracing – to achieve optimum protection of the shipping goods. The PAPERplus Coiler² processes the paper pads at a high speed, with the upstream PAPERplus Classic, PAPERplus Crossover, and PAPERplus Track machines working in sync.
