How to Increase Your Packaging Efficiency:

  1. Start Palletizing Your Loads – Palletizing your shipments cuts down on load times, improves safety and eases physical strain on your workers.
  2. Automate Your Palletization Process – Instead of wrapping pallets by hand, invest in an automatic palletizing machine.
  3. Automate Your Stretch Wrapping Process – Stretch wrapping by hand is ineffective, costly and inconsistent. Investing in an automatic or semi-automatic stretch wrap machine will reduce these issues.
  4. Take Advantage of Remote Monitoring – Robopac USA machines come with R Connect – a technology that allows you to monitor performance remotely. It allows for access to the machine’s performance data and alerts any time, from anywhere you are.  
  5. Enjoy the Benefits of Cube Technology – Robopac USA machines also utilize Cube Technology, which ensures your machine delivers the exact right amount of stretch film at the exact right position with the exact right amount of containment force.
  6. Improve Organization at Your Facility – A lot of time is wasted looking for the right tool or battling a disorganized software system. Taking the time to ensure that everything is organized and your team is on the same page will drastically improve your efficiency.
