Unlike traditional 6 panel RSCs that are folded and glued with redundant overlaps, the JacketPack™ corrugate and shrink packaging system uses a completely flat die cut blank consisting of only 4 panels and a single glued flap. This reduction in corrugated material results in a significant cost savings per case. The first folds are executed as the product and blank is pushed into the bucket conveyor. The side tab is then folded in and glued against the back side of the case and the pack is enclose with sleeve/bullseye shrink wrap to enclose the pack. This process of forming a belt or jacket around the pack and shrink wrapping it to enclose it completely eliminates the need for expensive, pre-folded and glued RSCs.
An alternative to RSC packaging that uses up to 50% less corrugated material per bundle
