The costs associated with the packing operation may seem daunting. Despite all these challenges research has shown that the return on investment when using machines is guaranteed. When good strategies are adopted, automated packaging processes have good impact on the financials of the company. In whatever stage that your production process is going through, there are many key areas where automation can reduce your costs of operation.
Production Volume and Consistency Good strategic planning and automation in a packing process can expedite your production by a factor of days. You may be able to produce a day’s worth in additional volume from the time saved through embracing automation. Manual operations can only go so far when working even at peak efficiency. Several packaging machines have helped in increasing the production volume and consistency in some packaging processes. These include;
- Liquid filling machines which can handle hundreds of bottles per minute
- Shrink sleeve applicator machines and shrink sleeve machines with tunnels which have replaced manual application processes and therefore greater production volumes.
- Bottle sticker labelling machines and vial sticker labelling machines that have enhanced efficiency in label applications more than any manual systems have achieved.
Research has shown that when comparing between adding of staff versus automation, the latter is able to help you scale more efficiently and produce more as compared to additional of new labour. In terms of consistency, machine precision and automation gives you the ability to produce the same or better quality product on a consistent basis.
Reduction of Human Errors There is much reduction in error during the labelling processes when machines are used. Use of the bottle sticker labelling machine to replace manual labelling ensures accurate placement of stickers, correct orientation and minimized wastage in a process which would be tedious and cumbersome, and with reduced output were it handled manually. The level of automation in the modern shrink sleeve applicator machines is very high that chances of common errors such as poor sleeve placement and wrong batching are detected way before they become serious problems further on the line.
Reduction in Total Energy Consumption The introduction of modifications and technological advancement such as the use of servo motors to replace pneumatic systems has helped to reduce energy costs in various manufacturing processes. Servo motors are easily controlled with variable frequency drives that also reduce the energy consumption during idle processes. These increased savings on energy reduces the power expenses to the organization and overall cost of operation.
