Frequently Asked Questions
What size boxes can the equipment make?
Packsize On Demand Packaging® is designed to meet your specific packaging requirements. The Packsize Box Library provides a comprehensive repository of cubing solutions for an infinite number of box size. Need a box for a golf ball? We can do that. Need it for a golf cart? We can do that too.
How does the machine work?
We place the machine right on the pack line. Packsize z-Fold corrugated is fed through the back of the machine. It then cuts, creases, and scores the z-Fold to the exact specifications based on dimensional data that was entered. Product dimensions can be input manually, with a scanner, or through an existing Warehouse Management System (WMS).
What are the different box styles this machine can make?
Packsize z-Fold can be made into almost any FEFCO-style box. FEFCO is regarded as the international standard guide to cardboard box designs, of which there are many.
What is the footprint of the machine?
The machine footprints for our various machines range from 45 square feet to 150 square feet.
How many boxes per day can the machine run?
It depends on the machine(s) and your specific box requirements. We design custom solutions to accommodate your required takt rate.
How does On Demand Packaging work?
We provide the equipment to make boxes at little or no capital cost in exchange for a commitment from you to buy the corrugated z-Fold material from us on a subscription basis.
What type of support do you offer?
We have a 24-7 support hotline with regional clusters of field service engineers who provide technical support. Most customer calls are resolved remotely over the phone. If an engineer needs to be dispatched, they can be dispatched from a nearby location.
Our lines are automated. Will your machine keep up with what we already have in place?
Because our solutions are customized, we can install as many machines as you need to accommodate your demand for speed and volume.
How long will our agreement be in place, if we decide to adopt your system?
A typical supply agreement is initially 24 to 48 months with an automatic extension.
