5 ways to make your Flexible Packaging Operation More Productive

A smart way of working within budgets is improving efficiency. Increasingly, good packaging companies manage to do more with lesser resources without compromising on customisation, superior quality and customer delight. Environmental sustainability, a head-turning concept for an increasingly biased consumer base can be easily achieved through flexible packaging without incurring significant productivity losses.

By reducing input costs through less material per package and increasing the choices for vibrant and artistic visual presentations, this strategy promotes environmental health and helps completely different merchandise that stands out on retail shelves and aisles.

Yet, this does not come without its share of trials. The transformation method for versatile packaging — if not properly planned and executed, and especially without ideal equipment proves a natural depression for productivity.

When machinery is excessively complicated or operators lack the proper training, changeovers take longer, creating it less remunerative to supply a spread of products. As we have a tendency to explore many current trends in versatile packaging, here are 5 ways in which to alleviate its production roadblocks.

1. Offering seal reliability

Food packaging companies have a common goal to look for ways to increase the shelf life of their products. Packaging becomes one of the most effective ways of achieving this. Flexible packaging provides opportunities for the packaging film to be correctly sealed each time. There are sensors placed to ensure seal integrity, and temperature controllers to regulate heat levels ensuring the temperature doesn’t get too high to burn through films with waterproofing. This can be particularly crucial for manufacturers seeking to cut back their plastic footprint by creating films thinner.

2. Modular Technologies

In order to manage and maintain different product SKUs and also benefit from the innovation in plastic packaging to promote environmental sustainability there exists a need to be able to switch and shift between different types of films. State-of-the-art technologies like robots allow such transitions easily owing to their flexibility in bringing precision and safety in the presence of a human operator. While this technology is still ahead of its time in India, it has successfully managed to reduce its carbon footprint during the production process.

3. Better machines with easier operation

With transitions occurring often on the machine line, then operators need equipment that is user-friendly and easy to access. Complicated machinery without adequate training for operations will slow the changeover process and reduce efficiency. The video training will play a crucial role for packaging companies to make automation purchases in machinery. Successful flexible packaging companies use equipment that includes dynamic, intuitive user interfaces which enhance productivity and decreases downtime.

4. Cleanliness & Hygiene

Cleanliness is crucial in packaging, especially in the sunrise sector of the Food and Beverages industry. While frequent drives are critical for maintaining hygiene, the harsh chemicals, extreme temperature and pressure, can damage machinery that often has delicate interiors of sensors and other devices. Most modern machinery manufacturers offer services that maintain hygiene and upkeep, yet flexible packaging machines that can be cleaned easily are often preferred.

We, at the Montage Group, are equipped with ultra-sonic efficiency in offering customization options, promoting environmental sustainability, and improving overall production efficiency in flexible packaging. We invest in reliable machinery that improves sealing, supports modular technologies, improves operations and maintains cleanliness and hygiene.
