Custom packaging solutions provider Packsize has unveiled a new engineering platform and packaging architecture to make its manufacturing capabilities more flexible and responsive to changes in the marketplace.
The Packsize Global Modular Architecture (GMA) defines the scope of the company’s future On Demand Packaging systems.
The company intends to deliver improved and scalable packaging ecosystems to customers through the GMA.
Packsize CEO Hanko Kiessner said: “Our aim is to make Packsize’s manufacturing more flexible and responsive to changes in the marketplace, which in turn gives customers greater opportunity to grow their business.
“Packsize GMA represents our commitment, partnership, and active engagement with customers across distribution and production marketplaces alike who confront an ever-accelerating pace of change in their material handling operations and supply chains.”
The GMA comprises Flexibility, Core Strength, Speed, Sustainability and Smart Approach.
In addition to corrugated packaging advances in customer facilities, flexibility is expected to result in savings that the company intends to reinvest in future technologies.
Packsize R&D and product development global vice-president John Alpine said: “The common platform architecture now delivers a modular and rapid approach to machine development.”
The feature allows customers to have quick service due to ‘simplified’ installation and maintenance, as well as reduced need for spare parts.
In order to align the platform with the company’s ‘core strength’, Packsize seeks to make basic performance improvements to deliver efficiencies across all machine ecosystems.
‘Speed’ represents the platform’s ability to respond quickly to market changes.
Through ‘sustainability’, Packsize seeks to address increased demand for sustainable formats and practices.
‘Smart approach’ is part of the company’s strategy to embrace futuristic planning in an effort to prepare customers for the ‘fourth industrial revolution’.
The GMA will include the application of digitisation, the internet of things (IoT) and real-world technologies to transform customer’s packaging environment and supply chain.
