An investment in automated systems in any type of production or manufacturing company is an investment in the future of the business. However, simply choosing an automated packaging system to have automation is not only ineffective, but it may not produce the desired results.
It is central to the company to choose an automated packing machine that is the correct match for the products, the immediate packaging requirements as well as anticipated future packaging requirements. To understand why these issues are so critical at the comparison and selection stage for the machines, consider the following real-world issues.
One of the buzzwords in any industry is scalability. In the processing and manufacturing industries, it is a critical component of any business success story. Having the ability to quickly gear up production to meet demand is the only way to prevent competitors from coming into markets and taking over.
When choosing an automated packing machine, don’t make the mistake of buying a smaller system that will be operating at your current demand level. Look for systems that allow you to quickly increase production to the maximum allowable across the facility or line.
Any packaging equipment that is fully automated is a cost factor for a business. Cutting corners and buying a cheap system from an unknown or new into the market manufacturer is a risk. By selecting a known manufacturer of packaging equipment in the industry, you know they are going to work.
The ideal automated packing machine is one that is easy to install, integrate with your current process management software and that is going to perform reliably. This should also be a system with limited maintenance requirements that is designed to meet all industry standards.
Check the customer service reputation of the manufacturer before making a choice in a machine. This will ensure if there is a problem, it will be professionally and quickly addressed to keep your system running.
