Foam in Place Packaging Systems: Separated by 5 Degrees

Foam in place packaging has been around since the 60’s. So, what makes our foam in place packaging different from the competition? There has never been a solution quite like this. With top of the line expanding foam products such as the SmartMOLD, SmartBAGGER, Smart-SHOT and SmartSHOT Hybrid, foam-in-place systems provide high quality protective packaging.
Five degrees of intelli-gent, Intellipack packaging include: telemetry, bar-coding, equipment design, customer focus and the advantage program. Technically, there are five degrees of separation from our products and the only other market player in the business.


The intelligence of telemetry enables preventative maintenance 24 hours a day, seven days a week. By providing an automatic ordering option and simple connectivity, this foam-in-place packaging system enables greater efficiency; therefore, reducing your overall raw material costs. The telemetry system automatically collects, monitors and measures liquid foam and film usage, pressure, temperature and other system maintenance issues. It will then automatically contact a service technician to make sure your machine gets everything it needs to be up and running at all times.


The simple, automatic, intelligent process of bar coding increases your productivity, improves your protection and reduces your waste. By monitoring your liquid foam and film, the bar-coding system provides the right amount of liquid foam for each product every time. Each product receives an individual bar code assigned to identify it. From there, the bar code data will be programmed to match the pack-out requirements of that individual product. With the scan of a bar code, the foam-in-place system will dispense the exact amount of liquid foam and film needed every time.

Equipment Design

A system created for the operator, our foam-in-place systems design is meant to provide user-friendly features. With user-friendly, programmable bag makers, user-friendly hand-held dispenser technology, our foam-in-place systems are easy to use for any operator.
