SAN RAFAEL, CA –(Marketwired – November 03, 2015) – PAC Machinery, a leader in the heat sealing and flexible packaging industry for over five decades, announced today that they have introduced their new Speedpack Bagger Mail Order Fulfillment System. Unlike other order fulfillment baggers, the Speedpack bagging system is engineered to easily convert poly tubing into sealed bags. While perfectly suited for conventional pre-opened bags on a roll, this poly tubing alternative can deliver flexibility as well as exceptional cost savings on bagging material.Handling ease, dependability and reduced cost for mail order apparel applicationsFor superior ease of handling and seal integrity, the Speedpack bagger features a proprietary Easy Load Bag Opener that will both pre-shape the bag opening to assist filling and minimize seal wrinkles when packing large or bulky products. Perfect for mail order packaging of apparel, the result is a secure and neat package that may be formed, sealed and printed quickly and easily. With an easy-to-manage, CE compliant design, the Speedpack Mail Order Fulfillment bagging system will keep fulfillment operations up and running shift after shift.Next-bag-out printerEquipped with a Videojet™ DataFlex thermal transfer printer, the Speedpack bagger is designed for “next-bag-out” printing — which is an absolute necessity for efficient mail order fulfillment. The next-bag-out printing feature enables the packer to scan a packing list and print the corresponding shipping label on the next bag that is disbursed from the bagger. This feature eliminates time-consuming queuing of products, and greatly streamlines the mail order fulfillment process. The robust DataFlex printer provides connectivity with all types of software (ERP, rate shopping, etc.). This approach enables quick download of label data to the printer, which is a critical step in efficient mail order fulfillment.”Our expectation for this new system is extremely high,” remarked Greg Berguig, V.P. Marketing at San Rafael, CA-based PAC Machinery. “With the explosive growth in the mail order fulfillment sector, I believe we have identified a sweet spot for this versatile system. The Speedpack bagger is the perfect alternative to hand packaging, yet priced far below larger, extremely high volume automated systems,” continued Berguig.About PAC MachineryPAC Machinery is a privately held company headquartered in San Rafael, California.
