Keeping up with consumer demands can be more seamless today, in an age where we have technology and research at our fingertips. Knowing the needs or preferences of consumers allows manufacturers to cater to those demands and provide shoppers with the best overall experience, from the cost to the unpackaging experience and everything in between. Let’s take a look at a few ways to optimize your productivity and production lines.
Many manufacturing facilities are met with considerable waste during the packaging process. Waste in the form of excess packaging materials, overruns, damaged products, harmful materials, etc. By streamlining materials and using more sustainable resources, you can cut out unnecessary layers of packaging and use a more cost-effective substance. Solutions such as banding allows you to use better materials for the environment and for your budget. Banding is a safe way to bundle and label while eliminating damage, therefore eliminating overruns. This simple switch can considerably reduce your waste, thus increasing overall cost savings.
Automating your production line gives you all of those opportunities, plus speed! Automation in any capacity reduces the cost of labor by allowing you to repurpose employees in other areas. It also reduces the amount of operator injuries, decreasing workman’s compensation claims, creates consistency, and increases your throughput.
Enhancing your production line also means boosting your production rate. Multi-packing is another way to increase your throughput, increase sales, promote your brand, and reduce materials. In the sense of banding, multi-packing allows you to bundle multiple products with pre-printed material, unitizing and branding in one step! This gives you an attractive shelf appeal, cuts down on the material used in comparison with branding each product one by one, and allows you to show consumers your dedication to sustainability.
The list goes on when it comes to enhancing your production line. But when you choose banding, you are presented with an array of savings and enhancing opportunities. For more information on how banding can improve your production line, reach out to us today!
