Increasing productivity and improving efficiency are top concerns for manufacturing managers and packaging engineers. According to the Packaging Machinery and Manufacturing Institute’s Productivity and Profitability Trends Report, the majority of U.S. manufacturers in packaging-dependent industries measure packaging productivity. Nearly half of the study’s respondents said that addressing machinery and equipment issues offers the most potential for further productivity gains.
Equipment that automates manual operations or increases line speed helps companies gain needed productivity. Maximum throughput is critical for today’s packaging lines. Ease of maintenance, reliable operation, increased throughput and automation are all critical parameters for manufacturers looking to maximize productivity with limited labor resources.
In addition to production line efficiency, the selection of the correct packaging materials and methods are important considerations for getting your product to market at the lowest unit cost. Proper material selection will eliminate many hidden costs associated with inventory management, production flexibility, unexpected downtime, excessive labor, and unhappy customers.
