Supercharge Sundry Packaging: Tackle Inefficiencies Head-On
The sundry packaging sector covers a wide spectrum of products, from batteries and firelighters to car parts and playing cards – and everything in between. Sundry products often require specialist packaging techniques to ensure safe transportation and this brings its own set of challenges.
As manufacturers of sundry items experience a surge in demand, like many other sectors, the inefficiencies are being highlighted. Factors such as a growing need for a wider range of goods, faster output and accelerated distribution are placing greater pressure on the production line than ever before. Add in widespread labour shortages and it comes as no surprise that automating sundry packaging is providing the answer for an increasing number of sundry items producers.
Reducing the traditional manual resource reliance
Historically, greater levels of manual resources have been required for sundries packaging, which can typically include, but is in no way limited to:
- Car parts
- Communications equipment
- Delicate or breakable items
- Toys and games
- Playing cards
- Tobacco products
Sundry items manufacturers often produce a wide range of various items of all shapes and sizes. This has led many to manual packaging techniques, as the downtime for machine parts changeovers needed in typical machinery just isn’t viable overall.
While this has worked historically for many, a surge in demand, coupled with increasing regulatory controls, staffing issues and rising costs, are all leading to inefficiencies across the entire operational environment. Now it has become more important than ever before to tackle these inefficiencies head-on and future proof the production line.
How automation can supercharge sundry packaging
Implementing a tailored automated packaging line in sundries businesses can save time and resources, while adding the consistency needed to accelerate distribution. Tailoring is a critical part of sundries packaging, as a standard, off-the-shelf model may not give the flexibility needed, especially when dealing with a range of various products.
