Enhancements include faster packing speeds and several new programming modes.
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 its upgraded AutoHexaFil™, a fully automatic dispensing solution for its HexaFil™ void fill, at E-Commerce Packaging & Labeling Expo, February 27-28 in London. At Booth PE2501, HexcelPack will showcase the latest iteration of its automatic dispenser, which incorporates a number of enhancements such as faster packing speeds and several new programming modes.
The company’s AutoHexaFil™, which uses a novel cutting technique to dispense the sustainable void fill material into corrugated shippers, now offers packing speeds up to 16% faster than alternative methods. With a programmable screen and electric operation via foot pedal, the machine quickly dispenses HexaFil™ to the desired length. Four new programming modes are available to ensure supreme cushioning, blocking and bracing:
Cut-to-length bulk bin filling
Cut-to-length with a preset quantity
Cut-to-length – hold until pulled by the operator
Manual continuous length – cut when foot pedal is released
The AutoHexaFil™ is adjustable in height to fit atop packaging conveyor systems and has wheels for easy maneuvering. Recently tested for heavy-duty work cycles, the AutoHexaFil™ is durable, allows for quick and easy paper reloading, and – evidenced by one million cycles of testing – is virtually jam-free.
Aside from its enhanced product introduction, the company has been selected as a finalist for the show’s Sustainable Packaging Award, which recognizes companies breaking boundaries across various sectors of the e-commerce, packaging and labeling sectors. HexcelPack is one of four nominated companies whose products, services or strategies have been recognized for outsized impact and influence in their specific marketplace.
“At HexcelPack, our team is dedicated to sustainable packaging solutions that offer unsurpassed product protection while minimizing environmental impact,” said Lorne Herszkowicz, Partner at HexcelPack. “We are thrilled to be introducing our newly enhanced AutoHexaFil™ at E-Commerce Packaging & Labeling Expo, and look forward to connecting with many likeminded industry professionals.”
