At PackExpo, HexcelPack to Debut Additional Protective Paper-Based Wrapping Products for Sustainable, Cost-effective Product Shipping

Press release from the issuing company

Company will introduce novel automatic dispensing solution, as well as new wide width wrap and protective pads.

Sedona, AZ – HexcelPack, a developer of eco-friendly, paper-based protective packaging solutions to replace bubble and air pillow packaging and other plastic, paper or foam-based materials, will introduce several new paper-based wrapping and cushioning products for cost-effective and sustainable shipping at Pack Expo Booth N-9261, September 11-13 in Las Vegas. Among the introductions will be a bladeless automatic dispensing solution for void fill, a wide width version of the company’s standard HexcelWrap™, and cushioning pads.

AutoFil™: A fully automatic dispensing solution for the company’s HexaFil™ void fill. The machine uses a novel bladeless cutting technique to dispense the sustainable void fill material into corrugated shippers up to three times faster than alternative methods. Fully automatic with a programmable screen and electric operation via foot pedal, the machine quickly dispenses HexaFil™ in preset lengths with no cutting blades or dangerous components needed. The AutoFil™ stands 6½ feet tall and is adjustable in height to fit over packaging conveyor systems. The unit also has wheels for easy maneuvering.

Wide Wrap™: A wider version of the company’s original HexcelWrap™ cushioning paper. Available in widths from 20” to 40” (unstretched), the solution allows easier wrapping of larger items. Wide Wrap™ can be dispensed via a tabletop brush dispenser or an orbital wrapper for larger and heavier items that need ample protection.

Hexcel Pads™: Similar to the company’s Hexcel’Ope™ mailer, its Hexcel Pads™ offer superior protection attributes without the interior opening. Hexcel Pads™ are available in sizes up to 48” long and 16” wide, and are available in three thicknesses – including a double layer option for best possible protection against crushing.

“We are thrilled to be expanding our protective packaging solutions portfolio with innovative new products that are both cost-effective and sustainable,” said Lorne Herszkowicz, Partner at HexcelPack. “At the same time, we are actively expanding out market reach with our new office in the United Kingdom and a number of new customers here in North America.”
