Paper packaging provider Ranpak has launched the Cut’it! EVO automated in-line packaging machine for end-of-line (EOL) packaging applications.

The solution is designed to ensure materials are packed using the smallest amount of volume while minimising void fill, supporting customers in reaching the maximum 40% void target mandated by the EU Packaging Directive.

The machine automatically shortens cartons to match their highest point of filling before glueing a lid securely in place.

Cut’it! EVO delivers labour savings, EOL flow optimisation, enhanced unboxing experience, shipping cost reduction, reduced material usage and consolidated box footprints.

The Ranpak Connect digital solution works in conjunction with Cut’it! EVO, providing an overview of machine utilisation and performance in daily reporting on parameters, including an integrated camera in the machine.

Ranpak is also offering two other digital tools: Precube’it!, a solution that uses data analytics for machine utilisation and box fill rates, and DecisionTower, which combines 2D and 3D AI-supported computer vision technology.

Ranpak global managing director of automation Bryan Boatner commented: “As packing operations look to gain efficiencies, EOL packaging automation, rather than an afterthought, should actually be where companies begin their automation process. The cascading benefits of end-of-line automation can condense time to return on investment to within one to three years, instead of the three to five years piecemeal and back-end investments usually deliver.”
