Is your packaging process manual or automated? And could it be optimised? The impact of your packaging extends to the production efficiency of your packing lines.
What packaging process do you run at your plant? Whether it’s a manual (often the case for e-commerce) or an automated process, you are constantly aware that it needs to run as smoothly, safely and efficiently as possible.
For manual processes, it’s important to make the packaging process both ergonomic and as efficient as possible. Auto-lock bottom boxes can offer a solution here. 4-point or 6-point glued boxes also offer very short set-up times for manual processes.
In the case of automated packaging processes, the boxes should run as smoothly as possible on the packaging lines. Issues that may occur here include delamination of the flutes (when the layers of the cardboard become separated), print deficiency (when colours fade), or gap problems (when American boxes aren’t correctly folded and glued).
