InstaPrint prints, scans and inserts up to 200 pages per minute on demand.

TORONTO – Pineberry Manufacturing Inc. will be exhibiting at MODEX with the award-winning InstaPrint Packing Slip Inserter.

New to the Pineberry line of products, the InstaPrint uses a high quality drop-on-demand inkjet printer that has the ability to print on many flat materials, sizes and odd stocks, including paper, plastic and stock with an integrated label.  With no consumables other than ink, the InstaPrint is cost efficient proving a quick ROI.

Built with read and print software, packing slips are printed, folded and inserted into cartons at high speeds on demand; there is no need to scan down the line.

“This is a very robust, economical solution with a small footprint used to automate packing slip order fulfillment for the packaging and e-commerce industry within material handling and supply chains,” stated David McCharles, president of Pineberry Manufacturing Inc.

“With an inkjet drop-on-demand printer and no printer duty cycle, if a rare jam occurs it can be cleared in seconds, unlike a laser printer, making the InstaPrint the most reliable packing slip insertion automated system on the market.”

The InstaPrint is designed to increase capacity in distribution centres, reduce the number of packing stations, reduce bottlenecks and labour costs, and improves the overall order fulfillment process, McCharles said.

With 100 percent print, fold and insert accuracy, the InstaPrint has a small footprint measuring 32.56 inches wide and 59.50 inches long. The InstaPrint comes with an attached Pineberry HSF 12 Friction Feeder, Drop-On-Demand Printer and a Pineberry Fold & Inserter on a vacuum conveyor that can be easily integrated next to packaging lines for seamless packaging and order fulfillment.

With an optional loader, the InstaPrint can hold up to 10,000 sheets.  With an inkjet drop-on-demand print system, packing slips are scanned and printed in milliseconds for speedy order fulfillment. With an optional folding application, packing slips can be easily inserted into various sized cartons meeting multiple configuration requirements.

Pineberry Manufacturing Inc. can enlarge the InstaPrint with affixing and collating packaging lines, making the InstaPrint flexible being altered according to job requirements.

Since 1984, Pineberry Manufacturing Inc. has been developing high-quality friction feeding, printing, packaging and custom automation solutions for the plastic card, packaging, distribution, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, graphic arts, and mailing and fulfillment industries.  Additionally, Pineberry specializes in integration, working with OEM’s and providing customized solutions for the most demanding environments.
