Installing a paper void fill machine can bring a host of benefits to your business: cost savings, efficiency, scalability, reduction of waste, ease of deployment, and perhaps most importantly improve sustainability, and ease of recycling for the end consumer.
Instead of using plastic bubble wrap or foam peanuts, a paper void fill machine pre-forms or creases paper to create the ideal cushioning material to protect your products during shipping.
Let's start with one of the most significant benefits associated with using a paper void fill machine – cost savings. Traditional packing materials, such as bubble wrap and foam peanuts, can be costly to purchase and dispose of.
These materials also take up valuable storage space. A paper void fill machine, on the other hand, uses recycled paper as a packing material, which is both cheaper and more sustainable. In addition, the paper used is more compact (until of course it is used in the paper void fill machine when it cleverly becomes more voluminous to fill in those gaps to keep your product safe during transit).
A key advantage of using a paper void fill machine is the reduction of waste. Traditional packing materials, such as bubble wrap and foam peanuts, can create significant waste and are difficult to dispose of responsibly. A paper void fill machine, on the other hand, can more accurately dispense the fill creating less waste.
Additionally, our machines use recycled paper - which can also be recycled again after use. This all helps to keep waste out of landfills and promotes a more sustainable packaging cycle. Reducing the amount of waste your business generates improves your overall sustainability image and reduces your carbon footprint.
By using sustainable and eco-friendly packaging materials, you can communicate a positive message to your customers, showing that your company cares about the environment and is taking steps to reduce waste. This can help to improve customer loyalty and attract new customers who are looking for environmentally-friendly products.
It's no secret that mismanagement and unethical disposal practices of single use plastics have caused major damage to our environment, and as a result consumers are demanding that businesses make strides to reduce the amount of plastic used in their packaging. Just read up on some of the stats below:
Switching to sustainable alternatives should be at the top of every business' corporate and social responsibility to-do list.
Efficiency is another benefit of using a paper void fill machine. The machine can quickly and easily produce large amounts of void fill, allowing you to pack orders seamlessly and efficiently. This can help to reduce labour costs and improve overall productivity. Some of the models can also be set up to automatically cut the paper to the desired fill amount, further reducing packing time. Using a paper void fill machine improves fill accuracy too, no more chasing the loose foam peanuts around the floor! Not to mention, refilling the paper only takes seconds.
