Sealed Air Automation, world leaders in innovative packaging automation, drew positive reviews for its I-Pack® and Ultipack® systems at the North American Material Handling & Logistics Show (NA 2010). The show, which was held from April 26 to April 28 at the I-X Center in Cleveland, included more than 400 exhibits and 50 educational seminars, allowing packaging leaders and professionals to learn, network, and get a firsthand look at the latest innovation in packaging and handling solutions.

Sealed Air's I-Pack® and Ultipack® were praised by show attendees for their highly efficient approach to secondary packaging in high volume pick and pack operations.

"The Sealed Air Automation team understands the importance of cost reduction in a challenging economy, without sacrificing quality or productivity. The packaging professionals and customers in attendance at NA 2010 recognized the benefits of the I-Pack® and Ultipack®, appreciating the systems' ability to provide game-changing solutions in a labor intensive industry," said Don Liebel, Business Engineer for Sealed Air Automation.

Both end of line packaging systems, designed for high volume pick and pack distribution, incorporate a tray forming module and a lidding module. The I-Pack® utilizes a unique void elimination module, which reduces shipping volume and improves efficiency, while the Ultipack® utilizes a void containment module which automatically inserts a flexible corrugated wedge into the tray for additional protection.

The benefits of I-Pack® and Ultipack® packaging automation systems are powerful and comprehensive. On the operations and engineering side, the systems substantially increase productivity, improve ergonomics, flexibility and versatility, and offer numerous sustainable packaging advantages. For purchasing, the systems eliminate SKUs and reduce the cost of corrugated material, and streamline procurement. Marketing benefits include the creation of attractive, unique, tamper evident, and eco-friendly shipping units. And, since the systems require no capital investment, they represent an enormous automation opportunity for firms operating under tight budgets.

"We are pleased with the positive response at NA 2010, and the Sealed Air team will continue striving to meet customers' needs and goals regarding affordable, sustainable packaging solutions that improve productivity," said Liebel.
