Provide Extra Protection with Cold Seal Packaging

Safeguard your customers' orders with Tension's SP600-3D. This versatile cold seal packaging system creates 3D box-style packages for a wide variety of applications.

The SP600-3D's box-style packages deliver an extra layer of defense for your products. Using TEN Tuff cohesive material, the bottom layer is creased and forms a cavity to hold the product. Then the top layer of TEN Tuff is applied as a protective lid to carry the shipping label. 

  • Seal N' Apply options create shipping-ready packages.
  • Machine operation and setup are done through the touchscreen.
  • Packs significantly more than typical hand-packing operations.

Your SP600 can be customized to meet your specific Internet order fulfillment needs, and can scan, package, weight capture and label. Tension's SP600-3D is designed to save you money, improve your productivity and better utilize your warehouse space.

The SP600-3D is designed to save you money, improve your productivity, and better utilize your warehouse space. Popular with book publishers or any manufacturer who needs some extra protection for their goods, this automated packer creates shipping-ready, 3D style packages. Tension's SP600 comes in two models, the 600-18 and 600-36, and can be custom designed to meet your specific packaging needs.

How It Works

The SP600-3D uses two rolls of cold seal material to make the protective pouch.

  • The lower web of the material runs over the infeed table and carries the product into the sealing portion.
  • The upper roll of material joins the product to form the protective pouch.
  • The end seals and length cutoff are done simultaneously in the sealing head of the system.

Your SP600 can be customized to meet your specific Internet order fulfillment needs. With the available options, it can also scan, package, weight capture and label.

Additional Specifications

When distribution center space is at a premium, trust the SP600-3D to maximize your square footage. Other features include:

  • Preset-length counters to regulate the package size.
  • 6"-high package capability with the SP600-18.
  • 10"-high package capability for the SP600-36.
  • Length through the system is only limited by what can be supported on the infeed table.

Cold Seal Cohesive Material

The SP600-3D uses corrugate TEN Tuff cohesives. The fluted, single-face corrugate paper guards your customer's contents from some of the typical rigors of the mailing process without the need for additional void-fill. The resulting package is suited for a range of products including books, trophies or machinery parts.
