Automating Your Packaging Operations

In today's market there is even more of a demand than ever to make your manufacturing and packaging processes as cost-effective as possible. To achieve this, companies are looking at machines to automate their packaging and end-of-line processing.

The use of machines means not only more gains in efficiencies but also less chance of damage occurring to your loads during transportation and a better-looking product being delivered out to your customers.

Benefits of Packaging Machines

Packaging machines have a number of important advantages over packaging by hand:

Consistent Application:Tape, strapping or stretch film is applied consistently and uniformly every time.

Professional Image: Cartons and loads secured by machine have a clean, professional look as applying tape, strapping or stretch film by hand can leave an uneven or untidy finish. The presentation of your cartons and pallets is important as it says something to the customer about the standards of your business.

Improved Product Protection: Product can be crushed or allowed to shift during transport if strapping or wrap is applied incorrectly by hand. Knowing what is required to keep your load stable during shipping, and while it is on your customer's floor, is essential in setting strapping and stretch wrapping specifications for your employees to follow. The responsibility of meeting minimum tension requirements is left up to the employee doing the final packaging, fatigue, ignorance, lack of training or motivation can affect the standarad to which this is done.

Employee Safety: Applying tape, strapping or stretch film by hand often involves a lot of bending and repetitive movement. This is a common source of back, sprain and repetitive motion injuries when perfomed incorrectly.

Cost Savings:Machines can be set to secure loads using the least amount of packaging material required to safely do so. Wrapping a load by hand, for example, may involve unnecessary amounts of it being used, which adds to both wasted film and cost. Furthermore, an expensive hidden cost of hand wrapping is the cost of all the rolls of stretch film that are unusable because they have been damaged when thrown to the ground or left lying around.

Time Savings:There are obvious productivity gains from faster packaging and securing of goods, as well as operational advantages in freeing employees to perform other taks while the machines are at work.
