    FillPak

    The FillPak system converts fanfold kraft paper at a high speed into a PaperStar™ configuration for fast and efficient void fill. Single-ply fanfold kraft paper allows the system to operate at high speeds with virtually no down time. The system can fit over any conveyor system to dispense void fill material directly into the box, making it extremely efficient for random applications. The unique design also allows users to stack and adhere six bundles of paper to maximize uptime and throughput. Product Details »

    AccuFill

    AccuFill

    AccuFill is the breakthrough solution to optimizing the amount of void fill used in high volume packaging operations. As boxes come down the line, the AccuFill sensors scan the box to determine its size, measure the volume of the objects inside the box and compute the amount of paper needed to fill the void. It then signals the FillPak® converter to dispense the exact amount of paper needed — no guesswork required. Product Details »
