Storopack announces improvement in packaging machine speed

PKBR Staff Writer Published 19 July 2012

Protective packaging company in the UK, Storopack has announced that the company improved the operating speed of its Paperplus Chevron2 machine generation by 50%. The machine unfolds a paper tube and processes the material into a flexible paper padding and packing filler.

The Paperplus Chevron2 has a speed of over 30m/min, is available as a table-top model or on a movable metal stand and comes with an additional setting, which cuts down paper consumption during operation, for top-fill applications containing light products such as medicines.

According to the company, the machine offers a variety of options for integration into the packaging station and the packaging process, and is available with white kraft paper. Using a conveyor system, it can supply paper padding to several packaging stations.

Paperplus Chevron product manager Paul Deis said the new machine generation once again brings two dimensions to the fore.

"Higher speed ensures higher productivity and the additional mode for reduced material consumption, when less cushioning performance is required, reduces the risk of oversupply and over packaging," Deis said.
