Before We Begin
Beforediving into the four key elements of foam in place packaging systems, we should first understand how they actually work. If youre a seasoned veteran, you can probably skip ahead to the next section, but those who are unsure should stick around. These packaging tools work ina pretty straightforward manner.Two chemicals are injected (in a liquid form) into a single poly bag, in which they will react to one another by creating a foam. The poly bag is already positioned around the item inside its box and the foam then expands throughout the bag where it will solidify further. In doing so, this creates a custom void fill that takes up the space between your product and its container, preventingdamage from transit hazards like bumps, shakes, vibrations, and worse.
Element #1: Telemetry
Telemetry is defined asaprocess that records and sends a certain instruments data or resultsto the user.When it comes to foam in place, telemetry adds an exciting element to enhance your packaging experience. In addition to all of the protection and safeguarding these systems give you, the devices we offeruse telemetry in order to automatically orderyour foam materials andrequestpreventative maintenance at all hours of the day. This means you get more efficiency and wont have to deal with order delays or production slowdowns because your raw material didnt arrive in time.Because the system records its own operation capabilities, including material use and settings, it can automatically reach out to service technicians when something goes wrong.
Element #2:CustomizedBar Coding
Telemetry isnt the only intelligent feature of our foam in place packaging systems. Another element that you should know about is customized bar coding. Our systems are able to scan bar codes on each of your products in order to provide the correct amount of liquid chemicals and the right sized poly bag each time you use it no matter how many different items you package. Every product you have will be given a unique bar code that is scanned by the foam in place system. After the scan, the system dispenses exactly as much material as needed, no more and no less. This allows you to minimize waste and keeps your packaging line moving efficiently and effectively.
