Orbis introduces First Plastic, Reusable Corrugated Box for Automated Packaging Lines

Friday, Nov 27, 2015

ORBIS Corporation, an international manufacturer of sustainable reusable packaging and a leader in supply chain optimization, has introduced PlastiCorr, the first-ever plastic, reusable corrugated box to work seamlessly with existing automated packaging lines.

PlastiCorr features the first-of-its-kind, patented Enfold technology. This joint design ensures the box’s flaps return to a straight position after every use. Enfold technology makes PlastiCorr the first fully functioning drop-in replacement for a fiber corrugated box. With Enfold technology, PlastiCorr’s folding box flaps work like new every time, allowing for unprecedented reusability in packaging lines.

PlastiCorr offers a seamless conversion from current boxes with no change to pack count or pallet configurations. By design, PlastiCorr is dimensionally and structurally consistent for today’s packaging lines and can be used in all types of low, medium, and high-speed lines, from manual to full high-speed automation. PlastiCorr boxes will last multiple cycles through a supply chain, delivering a bottom-line enhancement and return on investment.

Its all-plastic design is free of dust. PlastiCorr boxes feature smooth, sealed edges for increased safety, cleanliness, and ergonomics. Its revolutionary non-porous plastic design is easy-to-clean and won’t absorb moisture or odors. PlastiCorr is also 100% recyclable at the end of its lengthy service life.

PlastiCorr offers a significant overall reduction in environmental impact by decreasing the water and energy used and solid waste created by a fiber corrugated box inventory. According to a Franklin Associates report from June 2015, fiber corrugated recycling uses 284 billion gallons of water per year.

The report details how companies making the shift to PlastiCorr for their automated packaging lines can experience up to a 74% decrease in cumulative energy used, 89% reduction in water consumption, and 61% savings in solid waste generated.

This product brings unprecedented environmental, economic, cleanliness and operational benefits to today’s food, beverage, and consumer packaged goods companies.
