Ranpak Corporation: Voidfill measurement system

The AccuFill system automatically determines how much packing material is needed to fill a void in the top of a box and then generates that exact amount.

The system uses a sensor array that mounts over a conveyor. As boxes containing products to be shipped are conveyed downstream the AccuFill sensors scan the inside of each box to determine its size measure the volume of the objects in the box and compute the amount of material needed to fill the void in the top of the box.
