The CVP Everest system was unveiled in January 2017 Packaging by Quadient, a developer of automated packaging solutions. It is a high-velocity automated packaging technology that measures, assembles, seals, weighs, and labels each single- or multi-item order of soft or hard commodities in a single fluid process.
For a quicker fulfillment process, it applies a custom-fit lid to each box using a proprietary glue mechanism. This technique also enables packing of smaller objects that would not be viable with a tape-sealed approach. The system also provides single or dual induct stations with one or two operators in order to create high volume speeds and enhance operational efficiency while omitting up to 20 packing stations.
Before things are loaded into boxes, there is no need to bundle them or do any other preparations.
Two operators may put goods on the CVP using the system’s dual induct station, which features a touchscreen HMI display for each user. Packaging Digest has revealed that Beckhoff Automation controls are used to run it.
The CVP Everest stresses merchants’ efficiency and sustainability to keep up with customer demands. It produces fit-to-size packaging, decreases corrugate material by 20%, removes empty fill, and reduces package sizes by up to 50%. In comparison to taped containers, the totally corrugated packaging made using the unique glue technology is easier to recycle. More orders can fit on each trailer by making the smallest box feasible, dramatically decreasing the carbon footprint of a business and saving a lot of time and money on packaging and shipping.
Cost Savings On Labor, Supplies, And Transportation.
According to Bas van Steenoven, worldwide director of marketing for automated packaging systems, “the main drivers for return-on-investment are reduction in costs of labor, materials, and shipping, including DIM weight.”
According to van Steenoven, the anticipated ROI is often less than two years depending on the number of boxes the customer produces annually.
One of the biggest French e-commerce companies is testing the new CVP Everest.
Van Steenoven describes the installation as “a production-ready pilot system that’s of a higher starting quality than a typical beta system.” The installation was made in August for peak-season production, generating around 700,000 boxes in a few months, according to van Steenoven. The system produced what we promised and more, therefore our customer is pleased with the outcomes thus far.
Additionally, the pilot “demonstrates the high level of robustness and reliability, based on components from the company’s CVP Impack, as required in this industry.”
Although there is a lot of demand from the market, the seller does not currently have installations in North America, according to van Steenoven. We anticipate the first shipments of the system to the rest of the world in the second half of 2020 because we only released this solution in the US.
