Signed, Sealed & Delivered With YPS - High-Speed E-commerce Bagging Solution Hits The Mark

12th April, 2022

A trio of industry-leading e-commerce solution providers - Hugo Beck, Clearmark and YPS - are teaming up for this year’s Packaging Innovations exhibition with a new industry-disrupting model, the FLEXO 500 E-COM.

The all-in-one FFSM bagging machine with print and apply labelling capabilities combines the wrapping automation expertise of German machinery manufacturer Hugo Beck, with Clearmark’s outstanding British-designed labelling technology. Designed to streamline e-commerce and mail order applications, the system delivers enhanced speed and efficiency, as well as total accuracy for high-speed, high-volume operations and is supplied exclusively in the UK by YPS.

ICE Vulcan Print and Apply Labeller

Using opaque flexible shrink films, the FLEXO 500 E-COM forms tight shipping bags for varied size products that adapt seamlessly to each product’s exact length. This void-avoiding method minimises material waste and improves the aesthetic finish of all bags. Furthermore, the machine boasts a 700mm wide sealing jaw which is completely unrivalled in the market and is able to accept a diverse array of e-commerce products, future-proofing any operation. Meanwhile, the integrated ICE Vulcan print & apply labelling system, a unique non-pneumatic application, allows shipping labels to be applied seamlessly as the film is moving, removing the need for the old fashioned 'tamp' application. This system significantly decreases the cycle time and increases throughput, resulting in an efficient and reliable, maintenance free label application, without pneumatic parts or compressed air consumption. The game-changing Flexo 500 E-COM unit, which can reduce labour costs by replacing up to 8 people per line compared to a manual process, will be available for live demonstrations on YPS’s stand between 25th & 26th May.

YPS will also be exhibiting the new Max Pro 24 vertical bagging machine which is the widest autobagging unit of its kind currently available on the market. With a generous aperture of 24”, it’s roomy enough to bag two shoeboxes side by side. Plus, with a thermal Zebra printer for direct on-bag printing and precision bag deflators, the Max Pro 24 makes light work of larger hand-loaded e-commerce packs. YPS will be demonstrating the unit’s capacities on their stand using a range of 100 recyclable, high-definition, printed and branded poly bags. A range of shrink-wrapping machines will complete YPS’s offering for 2022, including a side feed sleeve sealing line and a high-speed, continuous motion side sealing unit.
