3 Tips to selecting a packaging machine

Are you thinking of automating your packaging process? 

Here are some tips that can help you select the right packaging machine.

 

Knowing Your Bag Parameters And Product Needs

Every packaging machine has differing characteristics in which it can operate. It includes the maximum bag size that a machine can seal, the type of material for your package as well as the fill weight that the machine can accommodate. Providing these details to your OEM can allow them to select the most suitable device to optimize your business needs.

For instance, knowing the product allows your OEM to suggest a machine and a suitable bagging material. If you can provide sizing details of your product, it will be even better because they can provide you with an ideal bagging size that minimizes the wrapper used but also ensure that the product remains completely protected.

 

Knowing The Space Restrictions                

Machines come in various sizes and are built to accommodate different spaces within facilities. Some are made for less floor space but occupy more vertical space. Besides, where further customizations are needed, there will be changes in spaces that your equipment will fill. Being clear on the area allows you to plan for the most optimal location to place your machine as well as to account for the additional extensions needed.

 

Knowing the volume of production needed   

Different machines can help package the products at different rates. This means that there will be machines that can be more or less suitable for you in meeting your customer requirements. Choosing the right machine will allow you to produce the volume of packaged items you need.

With all these tips in mind, we hope you can better select a packaging machine for your products!
