Returns and mail order packaging concept
The Comtex for fully automatic packaging.
Packaging welded on three sides is produced in conjunction with centre-folded film.
Operating in a line, this light barrier-controlled machine is able to process products within its format range, chaotically and alternately as these arrive. This means that product lengths, widths and heights may vary. There is no requirement to pre-sort the products.
Due to length scanning during the packaging process, as well as the tight welding off of the film excess, the resultant plastic bag is tight-fitting all around the product.
An item which is ready for dispatch or return to storage is fed back into the picking lines. This concept originates from the packaging of textile returns in mail order companies, and has been expanded to encompass dispatch packaging by means of coloured plastics.
The Comtex is also suitable for processing other products, such as books of varying sizes (on demand) and newspapers with supplements (gimmicks).
The highlight for the mail order and E-commerce sectors:
The new generation of a fully automated mail order and returns packaging line, with or without labelling.
In the Comtex 3G, the method employed by the side seal station has been fundamentally altered in order to improve performance. As such, outputs of up to 1800 parts per hour are now possible. This innovation has been patent-registered.
