Does your company ship goods in bulk on pallets? Is your packaging line struggling with labour costs or its inability to meet demands? We look at the key benefits of automated packaging to show you why it may be worth the time to automate.
Pallet wrappers can be split into two main categories: semi-automatic or fully automatic systems. Regardless of choice, manual packing simply cannot achieve the same consistency as an automated machine. Our machines provide a high level of precision and ensure a consistent level of quality for each product that is packaged.
One of the most obvious benefits from automated packaging is achieving a greater production rate. Sometimes, it’s just not feasible to get your staff to work harder and for longer hours when there is an increase in demand. The repetitive nature of the job and the additional stress can often lead to mistakes. Automated packing lines can run at full capacity for extended periods to help with these restraints.
Although automation can seem expensive at first glance, the initial investment cost can soon be recovered. Savings from reduced labour costs, higher output, and improved efficiency can all be achieved through automated processes. For example, automated packaging equipment can often be run by a single operator, performing more tasks in less time than your employees would normally be capable of.
Automated packaging machinery has a range of environmental benefits, including cutting down on waste which can also help to reduce costs. An automated machine will use only a set amount of required material to package a product, whereas manual wrapping will consume more resources.
By introducing automated packaging systems into your workplace, you can make it a much safer working environment. The chances of accidents and injuries (in particular repetitive strain injuries) are lowered when products are packed automatically.
