Automation, adaptability and efficiency

Automation, adaptability and efficiency

Leading packaging solutions provider, Antalis Packaging will use IntraLogisteX 2016 (16-17 March, Ricoh Arena, Coventry, Stand 59) to display an array of storage and packaging solutions – giving  companies the knowledge tools to improve flexibility and efficiency while reducing damages and returns.

As part of Emba-Protec’s strategic partnership with Antalis Packaging in the UK, taking centre stage on the stand and running live demonstrations throughout the show will be the Emba TrayTec machine. A highly innovative product, available in fully automatic and semi-automatic varieties, TrayTec guarantees perfect product protection, a fast, efficient packaging process, and a cost effective solution. With products automatically retained by film to corrugated trays before boxing, TrayTec eliminates the need for void fill and ensures that the packaging process always remains the same, even for dramatically changing items with different product heights and weights of up to 150 kg.

Says Richard Gee, UK Sales Manager, Emba-Protec, “We really value our strategic partnership with Antalis Packaging in the UK and we’re excited by this opportunity to join with them to display one of our flagship products at IntraLogisteX 2016. As warehouses and logistics companies look to save costs and improve efficiency through increased automation – TrayTec offers companies the opportunity to cut operating times, reduce process costs, and free up labour. TrayTec machines are custom built to suit individual customer needs for specific applications and are available with varying hardware and software options. As automation becomes increasingly attractive to packaging and fulfilment service providers, this machine offers unrivalled flexibility and efficiency – and a substantial competitive advantage.”

Antalis Packaging will further demonstrate its commitment to automation, adaptability and efficiency with video presentations covering a selection of its most innovative solutions throughout the event. Product presentations will include the award winning BoxSizer machine – designed to randomly size a corrugated box to fit the contents, in turn reducing need for void-fill and allowing for savings of up to 80%.  Also displayed on the stand will be Geami WrapPak®,  an eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative to plastic bubble wrap which eliminates the need for tape and acts as a sustainable alternative to bubble wrap.  Other solutions include B+ Equipment systems, FP Air Cushioning Systems and Sealed Air protective packaging products – offering yet more strategies for improving business performance.

Ultimately, the Antalis Packaging offering at IntraLogisteX is about much more than just the products. Says Andrew Smedley, Midlands & South Divisional Manager at Antalis Packaging:  “We understand that no two businesses are the same, and whatever the challenges and difficulties facing your business, Antalis Packaging can help to find a solution that best suits you and your unique business needs.  We start with a blank canvass and advise our customers on how they can make efficiency savings across all aspects of their packaging operations.  From a product portfolio that suits their needs, to improved practices that reduce waste, increase productivity and maximise profitability.”

Also core to the Antalis Packaging offering at IntraLogisteX 2016 is the certified Forest Carbon Initiative.  By simply selecting any Antalis paper products that qualify for the Forest Carbon programme, customers can offset each product’s carbon emissions, balancing its CO2 emissions to zero.  This scheme – quality assured by the UK Government’s Woodland Carbon Code ensures that when Antalis customers opt for the natural woodland solution for their carbon footprints, there are huge fringe benefits, such as habitat for biodiversity, recreational space, flood mitigation, and soil and water protection.
