Bag Packaging Solutions for Mail Order Fulfillment From Automated Packaging Systems

17 September 2013 – Automated Packaging Systems, the world leader in high-reliability bag packaging systems, offers a full line of bag packaging systems and protective packaging materials for mail order fulfillment applications. The Autobag® AB 255 OneStep is a wide bagging system with an integrated imprinter for printing customer information directly onto the bag just before it is pre-opened for filling. This improves shipping accuracy and eliminates the need for a separate labeling operation. This fully- or semi-automatic system produces up to 14 address labeled bags per minute.

The AB 255 OneStep is available in vertical or horizontal configurations, and will accommodate bag sizes up to 40 cm wide and 68 cm long. The system includes an operator-friendly AutoTouch control screen, and can be easily integrated with shipping and customer databases for order fulfillment packing and shipping. Onboard diagnostics and modular components ensure maximum uptime.

The company’s line of AirPouch® void-fill and protective packing systems produce air pillows and cellular cushioning wrap on demand by inflating material at the packing station, creating significant savings in shipping and storing pre-filled material. The AirPouch® Express 3 is a compact, all-electric unit that inflates void-fill air pillows at 15 meters per minute.

The AirPouch® FastWrap system produces cushion wrap and tubes for wrapping, interleaving, and block-and-brace applications. FastWrap bubbles feature a unique honeycomb pattern that allows air to transfer between cells for maximum product protection and multi-directional wrapping. One small box of FastWrap bubble material yields more than 5.5 rolls of pre-filled protective wrapping. AirPouch protective packing materials include EZ-Tear perforations, making it easy for packers to tear off the correct amount of material each time.

A variety of machine options are available to make these AirPouch systems highly productive and ideal for a variety of packing operations. Overhead hoppers, sensors, winders, storage hoppers, stands, and custom engineered solutions are designed to serve single- or multi-station pack and ship stations. All of Automated Packaging Systems’ products are backed by a global network of factory-trained field service engineers.

Several Autobag and AirPouch mail order fulfillment solutions will be on display in the Automated Packaging Systems stand #F240 at Feira Movimat, 17-19 September in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
