The trusted name in protective packaging solutions.
A next generation of foam-in-place technology (FIP) has been introduced by Pregis
LLC, a North American leader in protective packaging solutions.
Maxwell, the new intelligent interface, has been engineered to empower users of
Pregis’ IntelliPack SmartBagger FIP system. Maxwell takes the guess work out
of the FIP bagging operation by providing a robust, end-user experience with the
touch of a finger. This includes a personalized touchscreen to meet specific company
objectives and virtually unlimited barcoding. Users also have the option to add
instructional photos and videos to facilitate correct placement of FIP bags for
the specific product being packaged.
“In packaging operations which rely on FIP, workers are typically asked to
package many different types of products. Maxwell is capable of providing specific
instructions regarding both material usage and bag placement for optimum protection.
The operator can look at the screen to follow easy-to-understand photos or videos.
These are also ideal for training and troubleshooting. Maxwell takes the guesswork
out of the FIP packaging operation,” explains John Gee, national sales manager,
Several new “smart” features have been designed to increase productivity
and expand control of packing standards, material usage, cost management and training.
Additional capabilities include:
• Touchscreen personalization to meet diverse needs
• Customization of
access levels (operator, manager, service techs)
• Detailed material consumption
reports (from one machine or multiple)
• Unlimited number of preset and page
“Companies are constantly trying to figure out ways to drive costs out of
their packaging operation. Maxwell’s data-driven capabilities gives users
granular data that helps them achieve just that,” said Gee.
