Palcut POS concept ensures visibility as retail chains ‘limit in-store promotions’

Palcut, which works with Kellogg’s, Mondelēz and Arla Foods cutting custom-sized paper from rolls for palletization, has launched a Point-of-Sale (POS) concept; the Antim intermediate sheet.

The Antim intermediate sheet has side flaps that hang over the goods on a pallet, which can be used for promotional material, and according to Rudi Pedersen, MD, Palcut "ensures visibility at a time when more retail chains are limiting in-store promotion". 

Antim Stacker

Palcut is exhibiting the product at Interpack in Dusseldorf, Germany, this year (May 4-10) among others and plans to relaunch its corporate identity with a new logo, graphic identity and stand design. 

Interpack is our opportunity to show both new and existing customers our new products as well as collecting market response on product ideas. We are testing a new Antim Stacker concept, which produces intermediate sheets internally,” said Lars Østergaard Jonasen, product manager, Palcut. 

We see two major trends in the market today. The environmental impact of packaging material consumption which should be reduced (the EU’s directive on waste management, CSR policies amongst big retailers etc.). Our experience tells us that retail suppliers can achieve significant reductions in the use of packaging, if only they choose the right materials for palletising

Also, there is a high demand of automatically packaging lines all the way through to the palletization and storage. To meet those changes in the market we will continue to customize automated interlayer dispensers and continue to develop interlayer products.”

Palcut Smoother

Other products on display at the tradeshow include Palcut sheet cutter, Antim non-slip paper, Palcut Stacker and Palcut Smoother. 

The Palcut Stacker is a module that connects to a Palcut sheet dispenser. The stacker consists of a lifting system, which places the cut sheets on a pallet for use elsewhere in the business.  

Many of our customers have packaging lines where they pack by hand. Here they need a technology for producing intermediate sheets internally,” added Jonasen. 

With a Palcut Stacker installation, they can cut sheets for the other packaging lines. The advantage is flexibility, reduced storage requirements and less capital tied up in stock.”  

The Palcut Smoother removes tension from sheets with a heavy paper quality, 250 grams/m2 and above. This means the cut sheets lie flat and ready on the packing robot’s collection table so all paper on the roll can be used. This reduces the number of roll changes and interruptions to operation.
