A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11958648B2) describes a packaging system designed to transfer a dunnage product to a packaging container efficiently. The system includes a dunnage sensor that detects the dunnage product at an alignment reference plane in a staging location, a package sensor that detects the packaging container at the same reference plane in a loading location, and a dunnage placement apparatus that transfers the dunnage product to the container. A controller coordinates the process by receiving signals from both sensors and activating the dunnage placement apparatus accordingly.

The system's innovative design ensures precise alignment of the dunnage product and packaging container before transfer, enhancing the efficiency and accuracy of the packaging process. The method involves detecting the alignment of the dunnage product and container, transmitting signals to the controller, and activating the dunnage placement apparatus for seamless transfer. The system also includes a staging member with a sloped bottom wall and gate members for controlled transfer of the dunnage product. Additionally, the method involves detecting the orientation of the dunnage product and container to ensure proper alignment before transfer, further streamlining the packaging process. Overall, the patented system and method offer a sophisticated solution for transferring dunnage products to packaging containers with precision and efficiency.
