How Packaging Automation Saves Money

Package automation is something you need in your business. You know that it will save you time, but did you also know it will save you money? It doesn’t matter how big or small your business is. By getting an Autobag or investing in packaging machines, you will find your profits widen and you have more money to spend in other areas of your business.

Not sure that’s the truth? Here’s a look at packaging automation and how it will help save you money.

Reduce Employee Cost By Hiring Less People

You want to keep your employment costs down in your business. To get through a large order in a short amount of time, you would usually need to hire many people. Humans are slow, and some are slower than others. If their productivity levels slip, they have to work longer hours to get the task done.

Chances are you’re paying them by the hour. For simple maths, let’s say the hourly rate is $10. It can take 10 people 10 hours to do the packing. That’s $100 per hour spent on your employees, and $1,000 spent over the course of the day.

When you invest in packaging machines, they can handle the packing efficiently. They don’t lose track of time, find their productivity levels slip, or struggle with motivation for the day. They also won’t look at ways to play the system to get more hours to get paid more.

Autobag Automated Packaging Systems Are More Accurate

People forget what they’ve put into boxes and bags. This is especially a problem for larger orders. Your customers can lose out on items that have been promised, meaning you have to deal with it quickly and effectively. Sometimes just getting the missing item isn’t enough.

After that, you need to find out why this happened. It can involve disciplining your staff or extra training. This requires more money spent by you to afford this extra training. Machines don’t need extra training. They’re more accurate. Investing in an Autobag automated packaging system could reduce the chances of missing items immediately.  There will still be employees needed. You’ll need someone to repair the machines and someone to overlook the process in case there’s a problem, but you don’t need all the packers.

Machines Use Minimal Products

You get to program just how many of an item is put in a box or bag. You control the amount of tape that is used. Everything is uniform and done in a cost-effective way. This isn’t possible with humans.

There will be packing standards to follow, but not everyone is able to visualize a certain number of meters of tape. They may get the placement slightly wrong, leaving your boxes and packets looking a little unprofessional. They also spend more time getting measurements right and you run the risk of more materials needing bought to replace tape and boxes quicker.

Investing in an Autobag automated packaging system will help to prevent this. You’ll know the exact amount of boxes the machine can pack. You’ll know just how many bags the automated packaging system needs for an order.

It’s time to invest in packaging automation systems. Sure there is an initial investment, but that is made up potentially within weeks, especially for larger businesses. You will save money in the long term which will provide a high return on your investment, allowing you to put more into your business.

Automated Packaging Systems Next Generation Autobag Baggers

Automated Packaging Systems Next Generation Autobag Baggers

Introducing the Autobag 500 Bagging System – The new flagship in bag packaging machinery optimizes reliability, flexibility and ergonomics – Autobag® 500™ Bagging System
The Autobag 500 will package at rates over 100 bags per minute using genuine Autobag pre-opened bags-on-a-roll in sizes from 2 inches to 12 inches wide by 2.5 inches to 20 inches long. The Autobag 550 utilizes the same basic design, with a fully integrated AutoLabel™ imprinter positioned directly over the next bag to be loaded, eliminating the need for a separate print and label operation.

An innovative design provides more efficient loading with an adjustable pass-through opening up to five inches wide. No light curtains and less guarding enable unrestricted access to the pre-opened bag while remaining inherently safe. These new Autobag bag packaging systems can be configured in left- or right-hand orientation with an easy height adjustment for maximum operator productivity and comfort. An improved, multi-position unwind with tension control provides faster changeovers of bag-on-a-roll materials with an AutoThread™ function that reduces waste.

“Development of the Autobag 500 and 550 was guided by what our customers told us they wanted most in a next-generation packaging solution. The result is a bagger platform that delivers improved value to everyone from the financial decision maker justifying the initial purchase all the way through to the operator that runs the machine on a daily basis,” says Chris Rempe, Global Marketing Director. “These new systems facilitate a faster Return on Investment and lower cost of ownership while offering enhanced connectivity and integration flexibility. Special attention was given to the industrial design to improve safety and ergonomics for the operator and ensure the external appearance of the machines complement the advanced technology found inside. We believe that making our customers more successful is the best way to ensure our own, and these new baggers represent our latest product innovation dedicated to the pursuit of that idea,” he adds.
