Plants that are not already high mix/low volume are being forced into it by ecommerce. High mix/low volume (HMLV) requires a large inventory of different case sizes—or a few case sizes and a lot of disposable cushioning for the landfill.

The CartonWrap system dimensions them then automatically cuts, scores, folds and seals corrugated board tightly around them. This creates a tight, secure, yet easy to open box, with no stuffing.

But that’s not all! It can also print the finished box with custom color graphics and apply the shipping label.
