Is it time to automate wrapping your products?

Purchasing agents and engineers are always faced with a lot of decisions on a daily and weekly basis on how to improve their cost and/or work environment for the better.

 

 

 

 

One such way (if you work in an industrial environment) is to replace wrapping by hand wrap with an efficient stretch wrapper for pallet wrapping applications.  If you are using copious amounts of hand wrap you are probably a great candidate for such a change.  Have you asked yourself if wrapping by hand is the most cost effective, fast and safe way for your packaging applications?  Well read on and find out some good reasons that you should be considering a stretch wrapper.

  1. Employee safety (this is a big one) and it gets bigger as time goes on, repetitive movement injuries from overuse by wrapping products is a simple fix.
  2. Quality Control  and/or consistent and uniform application – with a wrapper you are going to get a consistent wrapping look each time, whereas your loads will be only as good as your hand wrapping employee or employees!
  3. Customer Satisfaction – your customers will love the polished, professional packages they receive from you because you have invested in a wrapper
  4. Film Savings – We can perform a test on your premises to actually show you how you can save money this way.  This would include anything from using less film to cutting unneeded staff.  Just ask us!  cclute@clutepackaging.com or call our Toll Free number 1-888-402-5883.
  5. Load integrity – a stretch wrapping machine is much more capable of wrapping a load with consistent force around the entire load when you compare this to an employee, no matter how good they are!

FOOD SAFETY IS EVERYONE’S BUSINESS

The global food supply chain is becoming stricter these days as there is more pressure by customers and distribution to ensure the safety of their product. The FSSC 22000 (Food Safety System Certification ) http://www.fssc22000.com  was just awarded its 10,000th certificate and covers over 100 licensed certification bodies around the world.  This is no doubt due to the fact that people are increasingly concerned about the potential effects on human health and the environment and as a result are demanding compliance with food safety issues.

Many of our food manufacturers and growers require their packaging suppliers to be certified by a global standard such as GFSI, also called the Global Food Safety Initiative.

These standards require the packagers and/or distributors to show that they have a food safety system in place and they are following the rules outlined by HACCP and as part of the ongoing certification process, packagers using the FSSC 22000 scheme must demonstrate they have knowledge of the regulations affecting the product in the “destination” country.

Packaging companies will be expected to prove their food safety compliance since their product will inevitably affect the quality of the finished product.

 

We at Clute Packaging Systems Ltd. have aligned ourselves with suppliers that have both the experience and the qualified staff to work with QA, as well as regulatory and purchasing departments.
