Crawford Provincial - Packaging Equipment Division, shares how they helped a customer get immediate cost savings and increase output, with a New Shanklin Shrink Wrap Machine.
London, Ontario -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/13/2013 -- A packing facility client struggling with outdated shrink wrap equipment and very demanding quotas recently invested in the Shanklin Triumph TR2 Shrink wrap system complete with flighted infeed. This company utilized, in part, a seasonal temporary work force. They contracted one of Canada's leading independent packaging/shipping/industrial supply and solution experts, Crawford Provincial to assist them.
The opportunity for Crawford Provincial was twofold: First, installation of the machining system and second, training for supervisory/management to such a level that the shift supervisors would be able to effectively train operators/personnel.
The Shanklin Shrink Wrap Machine offers many features about which the company supervisors were pleased. The lock-out menu screens at a supervisor level would be of benefit. As is often the case, there was a bit of competition between work shifts regarding who-does-what better. The Human Machine Interface (HMI) feature is user-friendly and there is a flashing indicator alert if the machine stops running the saved recipe, therefore ensuring consistent runs on every shift.
The company realized immediate cost savings, as their current film size was reduced by 2", creating higher run speeds. As an added bonus, Crawford Provincial and the client discovered that the style of flighted infeed, coupled with the new shrink wrapper would also effectively remove glue dotting of the company's products within the bulk pack without compromising the packaging and product.
The Shanklin Shrink Wrap machine outputs up to 60 packages per minute. One of the production managers crunched the numbers and determined with the cost savings of eliminating the process of labour and material to install the glue dots, the input savings of one project would pay more than the cost for the new shrink system in months. The manager is now considering adding a second system to his facility. For product information about the Shanklin Triumph 2 Shrink Wrap Machine and Shrink Tunnel, click here.
