18. January 24
This year's IPM at the end of January is a very special event for WEBER Verpackungen: the company will be presenting a packaging machine for potted plants that it has developed and produced itself for the first time at the world's leading trade fair for horticulture in Essen from January 23-26, 2024 (Hall 1, Stand 1D12.C06).
The pot packer packs potted flowers and herbs so efficiently that horticultural businesses can increase their productivity by approx. 100%. Compared to manual hand packing, the same number of pots can be packed in just under half the time. This means that the available staff can be deployed efficiently and employees have time for value-adding tasks.
It should be particularly emphasized that the use of the pot packer does not incur any investment or rental costs for horticultural businesses. Billing is on a "pay per pot" basis, which means that the customer only pays a minimal amount when using the system. At the same time, they can save money from day one and thus improve their profitability. The pot packer is supplied with two lanes as standard and packs approx. 2,200 pots per hour. The uniform, automatic processing enables a uniform, crease-free appearance of the packed pot plants.
In contrast to standard packaging machines on the market, the pot packer is ideal for paper sleeves and can also be converted to film sleeves with very little effort. As many horticultural businesses have already switched from film to paper sleeves in the interests of sustainability or are planning to do so, the pot packer is the ideal machine solution for this target group. Thanks to its simple operation and fast setup, the pot packer can be used very flexibly. The WEBER Pack app, which evaluates digital analysis reports on the packaging process and visualizes the packaging performance quickly and clearly, is also particularly innovative.
This means that WEBER customers can now get everything from a single source: the wide range of bloom guard paper sleeves and the ideal packaging machine to go with them.
