Improve Your Packaging Production Operations

Packaging automation systems allow you to improve your packaging production operations by replacing inefficient, error-prone manual processes with semi-automatic or fully automatic processes performed by specialized machines which can complete these tasks more effectively. At Ace Packaging Solutions, we offer a wide range of “end of line” packaging automation solutions to address your specific needs. There are very few limitations regarding the packaging automation systems we can provide for your business.

Our packaging specialists have worked with businesses in a wide range of industries, and this broad experience allows us to provide customized recommendations that will make your business more successful. We believe that collaboration is the key to delivering the right packaging equipment for your unique needs. During our initial meeting, we’ll conduct a deep dive into your business to determine the best automated packaging solutions to deliver your desired results.

Benefits of Automated Packaging Systems

Automated packaging systems provide a variety of important benefits to your business, including:

  • Increased production capacity
  • Increased consistency
  • Increased quality
  • Reduction in labor
  • Lower costs
  • Reduction in the number of production lines to make better use of available space and manpower
  • Reduction in employee injuries associated with performing repetitive tasks
  • Elimination of potential bottlenecks in the packaging process

Semi-Automated vs. Fully Automated Packaging Systems

In general, automated packaging systems fall into two primary categories:

  • Fully automated systems – Every aspect of the process is automated by machinery and no manual operation is required
  • Semi-automated systems – Only certain aspects of the process are automated by machinery, while other aspects are still performed manually by members of your team

The right solution for your business will depend on your specific needs and goals.

Fully Automated Packaging Systems

Fully automated packaging systems offer several advantages:

  • Higher production capacity with lower labor costs
  • Ability to deliver constant productivity
  • Improved consistency of quality

In situations where you have a very high demand for your product and/or the need to ship a large volume of packages, fully automated solutions provide you with the consistency and speed necessary to meet your goals.

However, there are a couple potential drawbacks to full packaging automation which must be balanced with your need for speed and consistency. These include:

  • Higher acquisition and installation cost
  • Greater complexity

Fully automated packaging systems require a much more technical and precise installation process. This results in a higher upfront cost to get your system up and running. However, these higher initial costs are often balanced by their greater ability to accommodate higher volume, which will help improve your profitability over time.

Semi-Automated Packaging Systems

Semi-automated packaging systems give you the ability to control how much of the process gets automated. It can be as little as one step or as much as a large percentage of the process. These systems offer a variety of benefits:

  • Easier installation process
  • Lower upfront cost
  • Greater flexibility
  • Less technical savvy required to setup, operate and maintain

Semi-automated systems are much easier to set up than fully automated packaging systems. They also have a lower upfront cost, which may be appealing for businesses with budget constraints.

You also experience greater flexibility since you have control over how many steps of the process get automated. This is advantageous in situations where you may want to test out automation with a small number of steps to work out any issues before implementing on a more widescale level.

However, these systems also have a few drawbacks compared with fully automated systems:

  • Slower speed
  • Varying levels of productivity

There’s simply no way to get the same levels of speed and productivity out of semi-automated packaging systems as you can out of fully automated solutions. If volume and high demand are concerns for your business, then a fully automated solution may be the better solution for your needs.

Which Solution Is Right for Me?

In general, semi-automatic packaging systems are the ideal choice when you have:

  • Variable production runs
  • A wide variety of packaging formats
  • An operation that requires constant adjustments or quality control checks

On the other hand, you may want to consider fully automated packaging systems if your business:

  • Has long production runs
  • Would like to eliminate the use of human intervention in the packaging process

Choosing the Right Packaging Automation System

There are a variety of considerations that must be addressed when choosing the right packaging equipment for your business. At Ace Packaging Solutions, we take a holistic approach that evaluates how labor, packaging materials, upstream and downstream processes interact with the automation system we are proposing. This evaluation is critical to developing the right customized system for your needs.

Factors to Consider

We will also consider the following factors as we get to understand your needs:

  • Setup time for changeovers
  • Maintenance
  • Throughput capacity (we want to make sure you have extra capacity for growth)
  • Durability
  • Space requirements
  • Power requirements
  • Safety
  • Capacity required today as well as in the short/long term
  • Budget constraints
