Development of a dispenser

Material Handling Solution


PaperNuts are an environmentally responsible and consumer-friendly material used to fill the empty space inside shipping boxes. Customers order PaperNuts in large quantities, which are shipped in a bag that typically sits on the shop floor, requiring the customer to then manually fill containers by hand.


The Research & Innovation team provided PaperNuts with a material handling solution by developing and testing a prototype before manufacturing a process that will automate at least part of the dispensing of PaperNuts, therefore increasing efficiency.
