Automating production processes for PaperNuts

Project Type

Automation and New Product Development


PaperNuts® are an environmentally responsible and customer-friendly material used to fill the empty space inside boxes. The material is clean, safe, non-polluting, low in particulates, and their unique interlocking form provides outstanding damage protection when shipping a product. The average time to produce a bag of PaperNuts was deemed too slow, and machine breakdowns were too frequent.


The research team implemented a project on product improvement by identifying machine deficiencies, and improving the production machinery to provide PaperNuts with an improved product, while boosting their production and lowering maintenance time and costs.
