As with most processes, efficiency can be drastically improved with automation. Having the right packaging equipment in place allows you to automate the packaging process completely modernizing and optimizing how your company packages its products, as well as saving both time and money. If you are considering taking your packaging operations to the next level, there are various types of packaging equipment that can be used.
Case Packing Equipment
Case erectors work by taking flat cardboard and quickly turning it into a perfectly made, ready-to-go box. These machines are not only much faster than folding boxes by hand, they are also much less prone to making mistakes, producing boxes that will stack better on the pallet and decrease the likelihood of falling over and damaging.
Once your box has been created and the product(s) have been placed inside it, the box will move on to the case sealer where it is sealed using tape or adhesive. While sealing a box by hand can lead to seals that are erratic, crooked, or use too much/too little tape or adhesive, modern case sealers are designed to apply a perfect, symmetrical seal each and every time.
Shrink and Stretch Wrap Equipment
Shrink Wrap Equipment
Depending on your exact needs, there are a wide range of shrink wrap machines available today. From table-top sealers to fully automated shrink film systems, these machines make applying shrink wrap to your product's packaging a cinch.
Stretch Wrap Machine
With stretch wrap, you are able to get all of the benefits of shrink wrap without having to apply heat in order to seal the wrap. If you are using stretch wrap to seal your packages, consider investing in a stretch wrap machine which makes perfect application of stretch wrap both quick and easy.
From a marketing perspective, labels are one of the most important parts of your product's packaging. Applying them by hand, though, takes time and creates inconsistencies that look shoddy and unprofessional. With a label applicator, you will drastically speed up how quickly you can apply labels to your products while at the same time ensure they are perfectly applied each and every time.
