reducing costs and improving processes by volume optimization

The rapidly growing courier, express and delivery sector doesn’t only offer great opportunities, but also poses a challenge for mail order companies: vast amounts of folding boxes have to be processed and transported to the consumer quickly and safely, which leads to an exponential increase of the costs for personnel, packaging / filler material and transportation.

Optimize your packaging process with our patented Volume Reducer Vario 558. The fully automatic machine determines the minimum necessary volume of folding boxes depending on the height of the goods inside, reduces the packaging height accordingly and finally closes / seals the box. This procedure decreases the amount of air inside the closed box by 85% and therefore enables considerable cost savings for filler material like air foil. The ability to process different box formats at varying sequences at the same time makes our Vario 558 unique in the market and offers high potential for mail order companies.

Our Volume Reducer Vario 558 is the responsible and modern solution for the challenges of e-commerce and mail order companies. It can contain automation and data exchange technology (industry-4.0), allowing documentation, analysis and communication. It’s principle of operation protects important resources and the environment and saves costs without causing waste of material.

Functional description of the Vario 558
Our Volume Reducer optimizes the final packaging in 5 steps:

  1. interface – infeed of a FEFCO 0201 folding box packed with goods
  2. determining filling height  - camera system detects the highest point of the good
  3. reducing – safely and dust-free cutting into the box corners by special blades without waste
  4. folding – folding the flaps of the cut box
  5. sealing – eccentrical closing of the flaps with self-adhesive or gummed tape seal

Output: Up to 10 boxes / minute at varying format sequences

OPITZ packaging machines are characterized by their high quality, operator convenience and industrial suitability. Our customized systems consist of solid welded frames and exclusively include components of highest quality and reliability.
Automation of the packaging process ensures precise, economical and gentle sealing of the folding box, which is the precondition for automatic palletizing and safe transport to the customer.
