The new AccuFill® is a protective paper packaging solution designed for automated packing environments. Ranpak’s latest solution optimizes the amount of void fill material used in high volume packaging operations to increase the efficiency and productivity of packaging operations. Void fill is a paper filler material used to close up free space in the shipping box and lock products in place.

AccuFill® is simple to use and set up. As boxes come down the line in a packaging operation, AccuFill® sensors scan the box, determine box size and the volume of objects inside the box, and then compute the amount of paper needed to fill the void. The AccuFill® tower and the FillPak® SL converter communicate to dispense the correct amount of paper, with no guesswork required. AccuFill® is equipped with a unique technology that has a memory of up to 30 different box sizes. Users also benefit from six standard analysis reports by collecting data from each box run through the system. In addition, AccuFill® can provide substantial sustainability and cost benefits, including potential labor savings which translates into a fast payback on investment. Ranpak’s AccuFill® machine can typically pay for itself in 12 to 18 months.

“Our next generation void fill solution is truly differentiated in that it combines sustainable, paper-based protective packaging with an automated solution that significantly increases speed, efficiency and performance in our customers’ packaging operations,” said Omar Asali, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Ranpak. “We are pleased to introduce the next generation AccuFill® to help our customers decrease their environmental footprint and supply chain costs, while protecting their shipments to ensure their products arrive to the end consumer damage free.”

Ranpak’s paper-based packaging is curbside recyclable, compostable and biodegradable.
