Learn about wrap-around: the ideal solution for secondary packaging

What is wrap-around and what are the benefits for secondary packaging?

To meet the increasingly specific needs of today's industry, secondary packaging technology continues to evolve. One such cutting-edge innovation is the Wrap Around, a type of case packer that aims to optimize the secondary packaging process and provide a safe and reliable solution for product packaging. Secondary packaging is a critical step in the packaging process as it aims to ensure the protection and integrity of products during transportation, distribution and shelf display. Especially for products that are fragile, perishable or susceptible to damage, wrap-around secondary packaging is essential to prevent damage during transit. 

With Wrap Around, products can be securely and individually packaged to fit a variety of sizes and shapes. This versatility allows companies to achieve efficient and flexible secondary packaging, improving logistics management and operational efficiency. See how!

The advantages of wrap around

The Wrap Around case packer is designed to create customized boxes or wraps around products during the packaging process: the machine wraps a sheet of cardboard or flexible film around products to form a customized box. This type of case packer is highly adaptable to products of different shapes and sizes and offers an excellent level of flexibility, creating even tighter packages than those formed by standard case packers. 

This flexibility results in several benefits: 

  • Efficiency: Wrap Around ensures a fast and accurate packaging process, reducing downtime and increasing productivity.
  • Adaptability: thanks to the Zambelli method, each machine is customized to the specific needs of each plant, guaranteeing personalized packaging for different types of products.
  • Sustainability: Wrap-around packaging uses fewer materials than other traditional solutions, reducing environmental impact and contributing to greater sustainability.
  • Cost reduction: The reduction in materials used and the high efficiency of the packaging process save on production and logistics costs.

The choice of a wrap-around case packer, as opposed to other types of machines, depends on the specific needs of the company, the characteristics of the products to be packaged, and the goals of efficiency, flexibility, and sustainability. It is therefore essential to carefully evaluate all these variables before making a decision.
