    Optimizing packaging at QUNDIS: With corrugated board to the logistics revolution

    The smart measuring devices from QUNDIS help to save energy. Thanks to cleverly optimized packaging, the company now saves time, costs and CO2 itself. Find out how simple corrugated board supports a vision.

    Opportunities & Visions: QUNDIS Pushes Forward

    QUNDIS and Model – two companies, one vision: Making the world a little bit more sustainable. The Erfurt-based company approached us with the desire for CO2-saving packaging. We saw an opportunity to revolutionize the entire packaging process. A simple cardboard box made of corrugated cardboard now saves QUNDIS 40% logistical effort and a lot of energy.

    QUNDIS ' state-of-the-art metering technologies help people across Europe to use energy responsibly. So it's only logical to optimize your own packaging in an environmentally conscious way. Model is exactly the right partner for this. We look, listen and find a solution off the beaten track.

    In concrete terms, this means one less complete work process, no more film and more space on the factory floor.


    The task: optimising packaging – green and simple

    Listening & Understanding

    Qundis meets model

    Our consultant Norman Drescher accompanied this order. Like all of us here at Model, he strives for sustainability. He also loves to rethink complex processes. Together with the Erfurt-based company, a completely new and very efficient packaging solution has been created. And the best thing about it: The optimized packaging is 100% recyclable.

    A lot of room for improvement

    The Old Process

    The packaging of QUNDIS ' heat cost allocators was complicated. The devices had to be transported from production to the packaging line and fixed with shrink film. Many skilled workers were involved and a lot of space on the factory floor was necessary – not to mention the CO2 footprint. 

    Reduction as a gain

    Thinking outside the box

    Save CO2 with a different packaging material? This was too easy for our development team. Many hours and a lot of heart and soul have gone into this project to maximize the effect of sustainability for QUNDIS. The result is an apparently simple packaging made of corrugated cardboard, which saves QUNDIS money, time and a lot of CO2. 





    The solution: corrugated board with an eye-opener effect

    QUNDIS now packs its measuring instruments in just a few simple steps with just two cardboard elements – a die-cut and an erecting form. If the erecting mould is pressed into the die-cut blank, the new packaging unfolds by itself and is ready for filling.

    As a result, the company saves space on the factory floor and all processes related to shrink technology. Because now packaging is done directly in production! And if necessary, the entire process can be outsourced. If a package falls on the floor, that's no problem – the springy padded cardboard reliably protects the heat cost allocators 

    With the reduced packaging design, QUNDIS is already meeting the new legal requirements before high licensing costs for plastic are incurred. The optimized packaging also offers six revolutionary advantages over the previous solution.

    100% recycled paper

    The new packaging is made from recycled paper and can be fully recycled after use. This is the closed paper cycle at Model.

    40% optimized logistics

    By making the new packaging easy to use, QUNDIS saves time, material and space on the factory floor for each packaged measuring device. 

    Lower C02 footprint

    The optimized packaging process, the obsolete shrink film and the corrugated cardboard made of recycled paper ensure a significantly reduced CO2 footprint.

    Quality Packaging

    When packing and unpacking, the quality of the new packaging can be felt in every movement. In this way, the packaging rounds off the high-quality product.

    More robust packaging

    The product is better protected against transport damage thanks to improved drop resistance due to the springy padded outer carton.

    Less personnel costs

    Personnel who were involved in the once complex packaging process are now free up for other tasks.

    "Model has always found creative solutions to our challenges. Above all, these were feasible and were accompanied until all process steps functioned optimally."

    Larissa Tittel, Qundis Purchasing

    Sustainable alliance

    The partnership between QUNDIS and Model is an inspiring example of two companies with a shared vision as pioneers in the pursuit of sustainability. Together, we were able to prove that simple means often help to save a lot of CO2. In this way, we were able to revolutionize the entire packaging process with optimized packaging.

    This collaboration shows that significant change is possible through innovative approaches and a willingness to leave traditional paths.
