Christmas presents

While some people really look forward to shopping for Christmas presents, others put it off for as long as they can and associate one thing only with the whole process – stress. The hunt for presents in the run-up to Christmas is often a make-or-break affair for last-minute shoppers – frantic searching for suitable surprises, packed streets, busy roads, stuffy shops and empty shelves.

To avoid the hustle and bustle without having to sacrifice the fun of festive present-giving, many people are turning to a more convenient option and ordering their Christmas presents online. Often, they will receive a parcel that is far larger than the actual product, with all that empty space filled up with bubble wrap or packing paper.

That’s why we’re all familiar with a common problem after presents have been exchanged – what to do about the mountain of packaging and overflowing trash can. It’s not even as if our recycling boxes and bins are full of beautiful gift wrap – they’re largely stuffed with packaging materials.

The fully automatic packaging machine from Neopost reduces outer packaging to the size of the goods inside and ensures efficient.

Reduced packaging waste

We’re helping to change all that! The fully automatic packaging machine from Neopost reduces outer packaging to the size of the goods inside and ensures efficient, resource-friendly packaging practices. With the aid of a 3D scanner, the packaging machine calculates the volume of the required parcel and the cutting pattern for the outer packaging. A gantry robot folds the parcel around the goods, while a pick-and-place robot inserts the invoice.

And, of course, the packaging expert is using our servo drive technology. Together, the MOVIAXIS® servo inverter and “flying saw” application control the blade that cuts out the required cartons from continuous card material inline. We control and move the entire process, the gantry robots for the X, Y and Z axis that set up and repackage the goods and the movement of packages via connecting conveyor belts. The system uses our MOVI-PLC® power motion controller, CMP.. servo gearmotors with PS.F planetary servo gear units, BS.F helical-bevel servo gear units and standard helical-bevel gear units.

It is a great development and a convenient option for all fans of online shopping who want to avoid the stress of in-store shopping, reduce packaging waste and give their loved ones some really happy memories with colorfully wrapped presents – and a clear conscience.
