We helped an assembler of intricate time pieces reduce their material use by 30% and increase their fill rates by 15% with a new void fill solution.Talk to a Packaging Specialist
Our client was using air pillows to pack with products to use as void fill in boxes. The system wasn’t operating fast enough as packers were often slowed down and not able meet their fill rate metric. The client had also experienced repeated equipment downtime due to the air pillows not being inflated properly.
We replaced their air pillow and air tubes with rapid, in-line, kraft paper equipment.
The paper equipment was less intricate, with fewer moving parts, so chances of equipment downtime was greatly mitigated. The equipment cuts the paper to the exact size so no excess void fill was used for the package. Void fill material was REDUCED by 30%. Order fill rates INCREASED by 15%. To date, equipment downtime has yet to occur.
