per technology as its signature cushioning product, Hex- celWrap™. This method makes the paper “flex,” expanding its volume while maximizing the strength and stiffness of its fibers. When HexaFil is dispensed either automatically or manually, it spirals like a helix. This creates the bulk re- quired for effective void fill, ensuring packed items will be nestled in a stable position and therefore less likely to shift during transport. This results in a superior void fill product proven to outperform environmentally-harmful alternatives

and reduces the amount of materials required to ship. AutoHexaFil is the fully automatic dispensing solution for the company’s HexaFil void fill. The machine uses a novel bladeless cutting technique to dispense the sustain- able void fill material into corrugated shippers up to three times faster than alternatives. Fully automatic with a pro- grammable screen and electric operation via foot pedal, the machine quickly dispenses HexaFil in preset lengths with no cutting blades or dangerous components needed. The AutoHexaFil stands 6½ feet tall, and is adjustable in height to fit over packaging conveyor systems. The unit also has wheels for easy maneuvering. When speed is less of a factor, or in applications with lower shipping volume and space and technician con- straints, like most Ship-From-Store operations, Manual HexaFil is an ideal solution. The manual dispenser can be conveniently set next to a small packing table with the HexaFil easily dispensed from the roll by hand. Both systems are easy to integrate and intuitive to use without the need for cutting mechanisms. The AutoHexa- Fil unit stops quickly and acts as a brake to easily pull the material apart in the same motion as tamping and closing the box. Both the manual and AutoHexaFil can be custom designed for each application with either table or floor mounting possible. Users can increase shipping efficiencies and reduce la- bor costs by upgrading to an automated void fill machine versus a manual station. HexcelPack’s manual Hexafil void fill solution, left, and the automatic version, uses a bladeless cutting technique to dis- pense sustainable void fill material into corrugated boxes.
