TOKYO, Oct. 1, 2019 (Press Release) -Oji Container Co., Ltd. (president: Yutaka Fushino; head office: Chuo-ku, Tokyo), a subsidiary of Oji Holdings Corporation (president: Masatoshi Kaku; head office: Chuo-ku, Tokyo), today announces that it will sell Vario558, a new packaging system (an automatic sealing machine with adjustable height manufactured by OPITZ Packaging Systems GmbH) to the mail-order logistics center of a major retail manufacturer.
Vario558 allows for the automatic height adjustment of a box to its content, eliminating wasted space in terms of height. This leads to the reduction of buffer materials and transportation costs. Characteristically, Vario558 can randomly seal about 20 different sizes of boxes in length and width with a single system and can save energy used for packaging.
Oji Holdings has also concluded a license agreement on Vario558 with OPITZ Packaging Systems GmbH. Based on this agreement, Oji Group will undertake the manufacturing and sale of Vario558 in Japan. It has manufactured and marketed cardboard packaging machines and film packaging machines for almost 50 years. Drawing on that experience, Oji Group will offer comprehensive solutions to customers, including maintenance for installed machinery.
