Packsize today announced the new M1™ On Demand Packaging® system, a robust and responsive box-making machine and technology solution designed for speed, flexibility, and reliability. Built upon the Packsize Global Modular Architecture platform and utilising PackNet® production and optimisation software, the M1™ system delivers advanced On Demand Packaging® functionality for packaging environments requiring high variability in box types and sizes.

Businesses involved with the shipment of goods where box types and sizes frequently change can now improve the capabilities of their packaging environments. The design of the M1™ draws upon years of Packsize industry experience to maximise the production of right-sized, custom corrugated boxes.

This next-generation machine and technology solution features the latest On Demand Packaging® advancements, including the following key capabilities.

• A multi-bay z-Fold® infeed system increases productivity and maximises material use, enabling the concurrent use of four to eight corrugated bales across a two-track system;

• A first-of-its-kind functionality from Packsize makes it possible to print high-resolution barcodes, logos and other company data on the box during production;

• A patented multi-axis tooling configuration utilises both cutting and creasing capabilities and reduces back feeding to ensure faster box production cycle times;

• Packsize’s Global Modular Architecture platform enables Industry 4.0 capabilities, providing a new standard for system durability and machine reliability;

• PackNet® software gives packaging operators the ability to prioritise box production, create workflows, manage multiple machines, integrate with existing ERP and WMS systems, and produce advanced on-demand analytics via a newly improved user interface.

The modular design of the M1™ meets global trends for smart manufacturing to provide exceptional reliability, performance, and efficiency for all types of manufacturing businesses, while ensuring production uptime, low energy consumption, and efficient material use.
