Would your operators know if they were using an extra 1 oz of film on a pallet? An extra 8 oz at the same facility would be $250,000.00 per year!
The costs can add up fast – and that’s just film costs! What about pallet load damage and productivity losses due to film that is not used properly?
Companies are best served when they developed a stretch film procurement solution to understand the properties of the film they use, their distribution channel, and the forces necessary to deliver their loads successfully. Best Packaging has the knowledge and tools to meet these goals and provide a consistent result that can be created, tested, repeated and maintained.
Best Packaging Inc. uses a Computerized Load Cell System to capture load containment data on the field. Our system system is ideal for on-going quality control and quality assurance testing.
A manual system is only beneficial when monitoring data. When a machine is manually tested, the only information you get is the end result. It’s not as looking at the data while the machine is operating. In order to get a completely accurate test and achieve the appropriate film settings all the details would have to be in order. The Operator would need measure to a certain areas and pull it out exactly. Then, they would have to wait for the machine to stop, measure the data, and then make the adjustments. If you fall out of adjustment, you don’t get an accurate reading.
With a computerized pull plate system, you can see the stretch film data live as it’s the displaced onto the pallet. In other words, you know what’s happening as it’s happening- allowing you to make adjustments instantly while the computer is still running. This technology will equip Best Packaging to design a specification. Once designed, we’ll perform a series of steps to set up the machines to replicate these loads and train your operators to maintain these standards.
The only way to ensure you’re getting the accurate measures on all the variables is by using a system like ours.
Gone are the days where we standardize the film. Instead, standardizing the result will ensure the product arrives to the end user without damage in the most productive and cost-effective method possible.
