CMC S.p.A., Paper-PRO is a new auto-bagging system. It is designed to automate the fulfilment of single or multi products in cut-to-size, ready-to-ship paper bags, the system can process cardboard and bubble paper.
Orders are scanned for size so each final bag is custom sized to the length and height of each consignment, reducing wrapping materials and volumes shipped. Once wrapped, bags are sealed with low impact hot melt glue.
The system can integrate a despatch note/invoice printing and inserting system, check weighers and different sortation options. It can integrate into any customer WMS and WCS.
“As consumers continue to champion sustainability, we have committed to innovate with unprecedent technical solutions and new materials with the objective to reduce the carbon footprint of our clients,” said Francesco Ponti, CEO, CMC. “Retailers have often overlooked the importance of secondary packaging. Today it has become a key marketing tool to improve brand awareness and engage with consumers. First impression counts and sustainable, right-sized packaging that safely protects the order can become a prompt to get consumers order again in the future.”
