It's time to upgrade your packaging machinery Our sales staff often tells partners that you already need a new sealing and cutting machine , but under what circumstances do you resolutely renew? The following editors summarize seven points to see which one you belong to!
1. You cannot keep up with growing demand. This is the number one reason companies contact us to inquire about packaging equipment. Their concerns usually go like this: "Demand is increasing and my manual packaging process simply cannot keep up. Suppliers are angry, employees are overworked, consumers are becoming impatient, and I risk moving business faster The risks of growing competitors. "Automating your packaging line means you can respond quickly to growing demand, which means your suppliers get their products on time, your employees can work smarter, and Consumers get what they want when they need it. When aware of this, automated decisions are often unjustified.
2. Due to the current packaging process, growth opportunities scare you. Imagine: you have the opportunity to expand into different geographical locations or markets, and even have the opportunity to sell products on the websites of top online retailers, but the idea of growth makes you feel fear. You know your current packaging line is very inefficient. You can't imagine how production can successfully cope with the pressure of increasing demand. Sound familiar? Then you need to study packaging automation as you did yesterday. An inefficient packaging production line cannot be an excuse for stagnant development.
3. You need to spend a lot of physical labor. There is no solution: hiring employees can be expensive. Although we are good at many things, simple repetitive tasks may not be what we are good at. We can be slow, make mistakes, get sick, and usually our rewards only increase over time. All these things add up to dollars. For companies that want to cut costs without sacrificing production (or better yield), packaging automation can step in and do wonders.
4. You have recently standardized your product. We praise the packaging automation technology every day, but we also know that sometimes this is not a good choice. One case is whether the company's product or packaging has changed, is extremely customized or constantly changing. Packaging machines are best suited for companies with small differences in standard packaging and product types.
5. You can't consistently reach your packaging goals. High-quality automated packaging systems can work every day with minimal maintenance requirements. This is not to say that you can completely ignore them. Just like cars, they still need to be adjusted from time to time, and parts will wear out and need to be replaced. But in general, as long as you set the correct parameters, the machine will remain in production until you tell them to stop.
6. You are making a lot of waste. You will be amazed at how much waste the manual packaging process creates and how you can "see" some waste before you stop thinking about it. A lot of packages were wasted, many days were wasted. Here are some examples: overfilled bags (too many gifts), leaky bags due to poor packaging seals, finished bags that fail quality checks are often not reusable, labor efficiency is low, plant area utilization is low, packaging machines are fine-tuned It is possible to produce precise packaging with exactly the same number of products each time with perfect sealing. Because automation is precise, highly accurate, and repeatable, waste of products and packaging materials can be greatly reduced. In addressing wasted space and labor, packaging equipment requires almost no manual intervention, producing more equipment per square foot than ever before.
7. You have not evaluated your current packaging production line for many years. "But," you said, "My current sealing and cutting machine packaging process is working well. I produced a sufficient number of products and delivered them on time, and my company was profitable." Sounds great, right? Not so fast. If you have been reviewing your packaging line for some time, it may be helpful to contact an expert to evaluate your current process and make suggestions for improving efficiency. Over the years, when you do things the exact same way, there is a degree of "blindness". Often, the people closest to the packaging line are involved in the "daily" work so that they don't even realize the process improvement issues.
