Designing the perfect packaging operation solutions can be challenging. Also, with the shift towards e-commerce, packaging design is more important than ever. As a result, creating the perfect packaging operation solution fulfills your promise to your customers to deliver them the best product possible as quickly as possible.
Designing the Perfect Packaging Operation Solutions
There are many different types of materials, equipment and at a variety of processes that you have control over when it comes to your packaging options and solutions. Here are some tips that may help you improve.
Let Your Product Choose Your Feeding Technique
Each product is going to determine the feeding technique that is best for it. For example, if you have a product with size variation than a vibratory tray or belt feeder is probably going to work best. If you have a dense product that flows, then you might want to consider a gravity bagging machine. You can use Auger machines for flakes and powders and there are lots of other choices as well. But your product will have some history based upon other products like it that will lead you in the right packaging process direction.
You Will Have to Choose Between Speed & Accuracy
Unfortunately, you cannot really choose between speed and accuracy for your packaging operation solutions. You can come to a medium between these two factors, but you may not be satisfied with the results. So you may want to choose which one of those you want to focus on based upon what your customers want. When you choose your packaging equipment, you will want to look for features that support either accuracy or speed.
Maximize the Space You Have
Also, you want to maximize the space that you have. If you have any wasted space, then you are wasting money. If you find yourself over packing containers, then make your system modular or adjustable so that you can change it later on.
