ProShip, a Neopost company, has unveiled the CVP-500 automated order packaging solution, designed to build, fill, fold and label individual fit-to-size parcels all in one process.
With the CVP-500, fulfillment operations can eliminate unnecessary volume and create the smallest parcel needed at the lowest expense. This packing system uses 2,300 feet of continuous feed corrugated to pack single or multi-item orders with variable dimensions in a custom-fit box.
The dimensions of each order are measured electronically by a 3D scanner to help determine the size of the box needed. The operator can measure the weight of every parcel to ensure accurate dimensional weight calculations, helping determine the appropriate shipping method.
Every box is taped using 50mm tape, making it easy to open and re-use for customer returns.
A pick-and-place robot can be integrated within the solution to place invoices, packing slips or return labels into each package for a continuous flow.
On average, the entire fulfillment process through the CVP-500 solution takes place in seven seconds.
