Manufacturing, warehousing and industrial production companies are looking more than ever at the opportunity to invest in systems and automation as a means of improving the efficiency of their operations. For any company enjoying true growth there is an ever increasing demand for greater volume throughput and so more automated packaging systems, utilised as part of the packing process, are proving cost savings and waste reduction.

Whether the packing process has low or high volume throughput, it’s vital that it’s set up to meet the speed and overall quantities of a customer’s specific output requirements. Fast growing Ecommerce companies in particular have led the way in finding new ways to automate their fulfilment operations.

Packaging can no longer be seen as just an expense, it needs to be seen as an opportunity to innovate and deliver a more positive purchasing experience to consumers.

Innovations in the packing process are gathering pace and as we see increased demand created by the surge in e-commerce it is becoming more critical that space and volume throughout are maximised.

Packaging systems can enable a more efficient use of space allowing for improvements in the layout of packaging and despatch areas. Additionally, systems not only increase the volumes of products that can be packed but are often adaptable for a variety of products, negating the need for increasing the range of machines.

Kite Packaging are experts in this area and pride themselves on being a truly dynamic company who continually invest in research and development. For their customers they constantly look to innovate around improved pack performance, improved operating time or seeking to limit the environmental impact of packaging materials.
