For manufacturers of retail goods, how products are packaged is key to their success. And while package design is important in attracting consumers’ attention, packaging the product accurately and efficiently is what gets the right amount of product to the store shelves quickly and in high enough quantities to be profitable.
For many operations, however, hand scooping product into its packaging is still the norm, and it is a slow, manual process that often results in a lack of accuracy, as well as waste due to spillage. Plus, in some instances, hand scooping can cause repetitive-motion injuries to workers.
Industrial vibration offers a cost-effective solution to this challenge. By combining a vibration-based feeder with a scale controlled by an automatic switch, you can package the same weight every time, and it’s a much faster and safer process. Vibration also compacts – or pre-settles – product within packaging and other containers, which reduces costs of both packaging and shipping. Plus, vibration increases the efficiency with which bottles are sorted in a bottling line prior to filling.
Finally, industrial vibration based packaging systems are scalable to both large industrial operations and small independent manufacturers, in terms of both capacity and cost. That means even small family-owned businesses producing retail products can often fit one of our entry level filling systems into their budget.
