PFI™ Automated Print-Fold-Insert
Automated Document Insertion Removes Touches and Streamlines Packing and Shipping Operations
PFI™ Print-Fold-Insert is part of Numina Group’s highly advanced family of document print and insert, and print and apply labeling technologies that provides proven ROI
When integrated into automated packing lines, these technologies lower labor costs and increase accuracy and throughput rates across the Pick, Pack, and Ship Operation. PFI™ combines the industry’s fastest pack sheet laser printer with automated folder/inserter technologies.
PFI™ performs document print on demand and precision placement of documents into an open carton or tote. PFI™ automatically prints, stacks, folds and inserts up to ten 8.5″ x 11″ packing sheet documents into a carton or tote.
PFI™ employs the industry’s fastest on-demand printing technology and supports both single sided or duplex printing with graphics or customer logos onto blank paper or pre-printed forms. PFI™ supports a wide variety of carton sizes ranging from 6 L x 4 H x 4 W to 48 L x 30 H x 30 W.
A single unit performs 12-13 cartons per minute, CPM. Two or three PFI™’s in a high speed pack line can be used to automate 30+ CPM. It is a proven technology that improves quality, lowers labor costs/requirements, and provides higher shipment throughput for Omni-Channel, Ecommerce, and Traditional Order Fulfillment parcel shipment operations.
Pack automation lines can be tailored to customer’s specific needs for automating print and insertion of documents such as return labels, promotional materials, coupons and new product announcements. The line can also include inline vision capture/audit, weight inspection, and semiautomatic or auto-taper sealers. Carton shipment labor can be further streamlined by adding inline scan, weigh, dimensioning and print and apply labeling to automate retail label application and UPS/Fed Ex shipping, labeling, and order manifesting.
