Sparck Technologies, a leading manufacturer and provider of automated packaging solutions, will be showcasing its newly-introduced flexible print-on-box capability for its advanced ‘fit-to-size’ packaging systems at IMHX 2022, 6th – 8th September, NEC Birmingham, UK (stand 5F112).
e-Commerce businesses can now customise e-Commerce packages with colourful images and individual messages, as well as save costs, reduce shipment volumes, and boost packaging performance with automated ‘right-size’ packaging.
Visitors to stand 5F112 will be able to explore options to some of the most pressing e-Commerce challenges around packaging and fulfilment: from growing capacity in a tight labour market, cutting fulfilment costs and hitting peak targets, to eliminating oversized packaging, tackling rising cardboard costs and introducing brand-enhancing customer-friendly packaging.
Jo Bradley, business development manager for Sparck Technologies in the UK, says: “e-Commerce businesses are facing a ‘perfect storm’ of increasing order volumes coupled with fast-diminishing labour availability. Cost pressures too, along with mounting consumer concerns over excessive packaging, are leading to a significant rise in interest in automated solutions that can boost productivity at peak. These future-focused businesses are looking for systems that can cut waste, reduce ‘shipped air’ in transport, and provide capacity for further expansion.”
With the capability to tailor-make up to 1,100 packages per hour, for multiple or single item orders, the CVP Everest and CVP Impack packaging systems offer automated solutions for e-Commerce operations challenged by increasing order volumes, labour shortages and growing demands for sustainable packaging solutions. With installations across Europe, the US, and Canada, the CVP Automated Packaging Solutions effortlessly create, fill, fold and label each parcel in one seamless process – reducing package volumes by up to 50%, cutting cardboard usage by 30% and eliminating the need for void fill.
A new feature at the show is ‘print-on-demand,’ available with both the CVP Impack and CVP Everest models. Custom messages, logos, and branding can be individually tailored for each and every package. The ability to print directly onto packages offers tremendous opportunities for enhanced branding and individualisation of the package, giving the customer a more personalised experience.
Sparck Technologies will also be unveiling a comprehensive suite of data products and analytical tools designed to help businesses understand and optimise packaging performance on their CVP machines – ranging from real-time monitoring to complete performance reporting.
