The easily customizable I-Pack® and Ultipack® packaging systems completely automate tray forming, product protection, and lidding in high volume distribution centers. Both will be on display at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2009, October 5-7.

I-PackĀ® and UltipackĀ® are truly automation for everyone

Fully integrated, full scale, state of the art packaging automation is now within reach for any high volume, pick and pack distribution center. Sealed Air Automation's I-Pack® and Ultipack® systems work in virtually any operation, regardless of throughput, line configuration, package profile, product fragility, and even capital budget availability.

I-Pack® and Ultipack® will be on display at Pack Expo 2009 on October 5-7 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth C-1535.

Both systems have a tray forming and a lidding module. In between, Ultipack® adds a corrugated wedge inserter to contain products for shipment, whereas I-Pack® adds a corrugated compression unit to eliminate the need for inner packaging materials altogether.

"I-Pack® and Ultipack® are truly automation for everyone," said Sealed Air Business Engineer Don Liebel. "We have yet to see a pick and pack application where we couldn't demonstrate large scale improvements in throughput, package integrity, corrugated and packaging material usage, and/or shipping expense."

The systems are in operation across a wide range of industries, including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, industrial supplies, books, CD and DVD, consumer electronics, office supplies, video games, lamps, and luxury watches.

For the pick and pack distributor, automation is as simple as making a phone call, Liebel explained. "Sealed Air does the legwork by conducting a comprehensive application audit for the user. We determine all equipment and integration specifications, provide samples, conduct testing, and project ROI."

I-Pack® and Ultipack® require no capital investment - a crucial benefit in today's economy. Customers are not charged for equipment or installation, but instead pay a cycle charge based on throughput.

I-Pack® and Ultipack® can be integrated with all ERP/WMS system software and any warehouse equipment, including conveyors, printers, scales, and sorters. The system can also operate in stand-alone mode.

Systems will be on display at Sealed Air Automation's Pack Expo exhibit in Booth C-1535. Contact Lou Suffern at 708-352-8700 to schedule an appointment for an exclusive demonstration.
