Stretch Wrapping

The Set to the surroundings. Check him back up. Set the parking brake. The Lower the fork to the floor. Unbuckle a seat belt. Dismount forklift. The Cut film tail. Tuck truck. Disengage the parking lot of the film in tail. Climb brake. Pick wrapper. And the load And delete it And then repeat

If you’re already at the loading dock, chances are you’re giggling. No, you can take a look. Here are 27 steps… Right. The seat belt will be skipped by the operator, which may be the brake. Once the forklift was put down by him, stretching the wrapping paper through the whole package cycle was what he wanted to see. Two minutes of labor was wasted. If you waste time, it’s very bad. “Help” the wrapper to do its job is what he wants to do. He won’t help with the next load or do something productive.

You need to know that the value of the wrappers is our goal, and we can do a lot of things to accomplish this. For example, we can consider simple features. These features have a lot to do with automation. And the opportunity to make bad choices can be eliminated. Therefore, these simple features must be used rationally because it can bring me great benefits.

As we all know, this is a simple example.

Engineering flexibility.

Whether you’re a factory engineer or a company owner or general company. Whether you want to develop this specification for your next wrapper, or you want to invest it carefully in the future. That’s not important. One of your criteria is to build flexibility. You can’t forget that. As we all know, the machines you choose are all guaranteed, and it can also meet the best performance of your changing needs. At the same time, more value can be retained by him. Does that sound good?

Operational Efficiency

What if we have better load control here? Does it make you better use of the trailer cube? Imagine, do you know what this means to your customers?

It means that no change in length, width, height and weight will occur. But we all know that they are not the only things that can change.

Labor costs, staffing, and throughput.

Do you know how your loading dock is going to change? Yes, it will change, and we can almost guarantee it. One of your process engineers will recognize that there are many benefits to applying the lean approach. For any industry, applying lean methods can have great benefits. For this point, it can reduce losses while reducing waste and costs. At the same time, you will soon be able to achieve more goals with less money. Yes, that’s the basic fact of business.

By understanding the above, you can see why the problem of forklift and fpc1 pallets is a wrong choice. Even if you don’t need a forklift today, you’re planning to do the same with pallets and forklifts. The ability to plan for modularity is something you need to do, because if you want to expand your machine’s capabilities, you need to improve throughput and other options. If you want to achieve your goals, that’s what you have to do.

For example, we got a message that we got from working with thousands of customers. If the operation turns to forklift, there will be tough choices for operators. Many people hesitate when faced with a choice. So what should he do? Now, let’s see.

Carefully load the load. Check out the parking brake. Start the forklift wrapper. Climb. Fastening his seat belt. Disengage the parking brake. Raise forks. Move away under a load, make it back.

 

 

Stretch Wrapping

Do you know the forklift and fpc1 trays? Your stretching package needs to answer yes.

For your needs, we can design a stretch wrapper

. The thing you need to think about is buying, replacing or upgrading a stretch pack. What is one of the first and most basic questions you ask? The question is, “how does it fit? Actually, is it a forklift or a tray and pallet stretch wrapper?

As we all know, it is inevitable to have a narrow selection. The reason why we design some machines is to load the forklift. Then, you might think the right choice is a machine that can load a tray. Because it’s very obvious that it can also be loaded with a forklift.

Business change is what we know from experience. We also know that the nature of loads tends to change. However, there are also changes to labor costs, staffing, and throughput. These changes are something we cannot ignore.

You know what that means? Before you buy a machine, looking for upgrades and flexibility in the machine’s entire life cycle is what you need to do.

What is the payload of evolution?

 

Now it seems that for every customer, there is a specific need for loading, pallet configurations, tags, and so on. Perhaps, in general, it is often what you do (called 60) to stack products into five rows. Sooner or later, your sales and marketing team will find a new customer and this new customer is exciting. His repository receives requirements of 8 rows. Don’t you want to tell anyone about the broken machine you bought recently? We don’t think you won’t tell anyone.

Maybe you said it was to change the load: “I wouldn’t worry if we could only stack five stories. “Well, you’re probably right. However, if the situation is stronger, the direction and the correct column stack, better protection can be given to you.

 

You can choose the right pallet packaging.

If you need to start a newline cycle, the operator can use the remote control. At the end of the wrap cycle, a clamp on the automation unit can grab the film and then cut the film. The next cycle of film has been clamped in. At the same time. The need to manually fix the film to the next cycle is well removed.

By avoiding the repeat of the forklift, we can save about two minutes of work. That means $50,000 for a machine’s life.

Before stretching the wrapper, the forklift was also turned off by the operator and the seat belt was unbuckled. The operator climbed down from the forklift and wrapped everything in his hands.

So what’s going to happen?

We won’t say much about the reduction of labor. Semi-automatic stretching packaging now also has a function to reduce the load of film. The pretensioning membrane of this machine brings a lot of advantages. The company, for example, will stop losing money every year, before losing $6,000, or $42,000 in lost machine life.

The company’s freight manager said: “this semi-automatic elastic packaging has a lot of advantages. It can easily handle the transportation of our whole day, and we can save enough film costs. It’s also convenient to pay in the short term.”

Meanwhile, within a year of owning it, the machine will pay for itself. After seven years of ownership, the company retracted $79,000 in labor and film use.

This is the news that you can toast.

You can think about the new packaging. It is not feasible to pick the easiest or easiest. You can study this process carefully. Here, we have a lot of free education resources. These education resources, like our free eBooks, you can choose the right pallet packaging.

 

Stretch Film Cost

Case analysis, how does the semi-automatic stretching wrapper benefit the fermentation of cider? Now let’s look at the details.

In the United States, fermented apple juice is one of the fastest-growing beverage categories.

We can see that sales have increased in the United States since last year, and its sales have doubled. Production has also increased in the past three years, from 9.4 million gallons to 32 million gallons.

Why does this happen? This is an apple cider manufacturer that has made changes in its transportation department, so it can have such an obvious increase in sales. Below, we can see exactly how the cider maker does it.

But there are problems:

An apple cider maker employs only one operator. However, this operator needs to do two jobs. The operator needs a shovel to carry the packed bottles to the shipping dock. In fact, the process has not been a problem for years.

However, a few years ago, the number of the company increased, and the operator did not have enough time to pack and transport in his daily shift. So it’s a bad result. When it comes to dealers and retailers, a partial shipment delay occurs.

Fortunately, however, the company’s freight manager quickly realized the problem. It is very important to reduce the time of packing and transporting goods. One option is that he needs to hire another operator, and one option is to buy a stretch wrapping paper.

So what’s his solution?

Hiring an operator again is not the transportation manager’s choice. The transportation manager bought a semi-automatic packaging machine. He also bought an automated device. Connecting the membrane to the load is the machine. At the same time, it is the operator that starts the machine. Also, the operator does not need to leave the forklift when the load is unloaded from the turntable. Sounds like a lot of convenience, right?

 

 

 

Do you know how to cut labor costs by semi-automatic stretch wrappers?

Do you know how to cut labor costs by semi-automatic stretch wrappers? If you don’t know, take a look at our article.

We all know that for manufacturing workers, their costs are expensive. In fact, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (Bureau of Labor Statistics), U.S. manufacturers pay staff salary is very high, generally speaking, the salary is a bit more than three times the national minimum wage. And the same is true in other developed countries, where they pay workers so much.

It’s their purpose to maximize the value of their people on the clock, and to do that, some smart companies are now using better tools to equip them. Their goal is to make them more efficient. Manual packaging or using obsolete machines is out of date, for them. They want to invest in semi-automatic stretch wrappers that can save time and money.

For example, a machine at the end of the film packaging cycle usually saves labor automatically, and in general, it can be saved every 30 seconds. Or an additional film begins with a cycle and reduces it to the end. The average two-minute load can be saved. That’s because their forklift driver didn’t get off.

If you need to get the machine done, then the operator can take the time to do something else. For example, they could do another job. For example, they can print the shipping tag or complete the bill of lading. This will make their day more efficient.

Doesn’t that sound cool? At the same time, within a few years, we can see that, in fact, thousands of dollars have been paid out. The chart below shows a lot of content. If you want to save labor and cost, you can do this by adding the popular automation features to the semi-automatic stretcher wrapper.

If you make the machines do a lot of work, then there’s no doubt that you’re doing better. If you add automation, the cost of the machine can be increased. However, each load is more than the labor savings. Usually, we cut it by automatically attaching the film and cutting it at the end of the loop, and the cost can be saved, and the labor is saved. Do you know what this means to you? 38 or you’ll be back in your pocket, and every time you pack it.

What is your reason for stopping here? In fact, we have other productivity improvements. For example, you can set up a scale on the turntable of a stretcher, so that you can wrap and weigh yourself. This could be an opportunity to rethink what you’re doing.

 

Labor Saving

Second, Second, stop wasting labor is something you can get.

The operator must perform a series of steps, which are about 20 time-consuming steps. The purpose of these steps is to complete the packaging cycle of a forklift truck on an old machine. Over the course of five years, the process adds up to about $50, 000 in waste, a waste of Labor (46.000). If you need to pack 50 load and payment operators per day ($11) $12 per hour.

The need to cut the film and save to the next cycle at the end of the loop is eliminated by increased automation. Operator can use lanyard switch or remote control device. The purpose is to start the newline cycle, and we all know that it’s not necessary to leave the forklift.

Do you know what another method of saving labor is? It has to do with weighing your load. If weighing your load is what you need to do. So, there is a choice that you have to put your stretch wrap on a scale, or another option is to shift the load to a single scale. It can be said that this process is time-consuming.

We know that there are some new stretching wrappers that have also installed scales on their turntables. The effect of these claims is to eliminate the dual processing load from 30 seconds to 1.5 minutes. Do you know what it does to move them from the wrapper to the independent platform scale? Over the course of five years, this means that 7,500 ($7,000) to 7,500 dollars and (14.000) of the workforce have been eliminated. Third, you can reduce the risk of accidents.

If it is an old machine, it may cause a higher risk of injury to your operator.

Your operator may be in danger of being tripped up. Also, the exposed engines and not sufficiently large turntables are included. No more than load is the purpose. In addition, they may not have updated security features in terms of security features. When he connects the film to the load, the operator’s back strain can be greatly reduced.

Do you know what the new machine does? It has built-in security features. However, old machines do not have built-in security features. If the load is moving, the film breaks. Then, the load will stop. The operator will not be tempted, the operator will not connect the membrane to the mobile load.

Do you know the best way to manage these risks? Avoiding them with the new machine is the best way. Each cycle of attaching and cutting movies is something they do actively. The need to drive from one truck to another is well removed.

Labor Saving

Do you know the benefits of replacing the old stretch wrap with the new stretch wrap? Now, let’s see.

If “wrappers” are the words you’ve been searching for recently. Whether or not to give up the old, rusty machine in the corner may be the thing to think about.

Or, perhaps, your idea is that your old machine still works well, and for a while you don’t need to replace it.

But, do you know that replacing an old elastic wrapper is not related to whether it is still running? If you use a new stretch wrapper, it can stop you wasting money on film and labor. In addition, they have the advantage of being safer.

There are many benefits to using a new wrapper. First, it can easily save you money. Second, the risk of injury to operators can also be reduced. Now, let’s take a look at the benefits of replacing old ones with old ones!

First, the cost of wasting film will be greatly reduced and reduced while working.

If a person packs 50 loads a day, it doesn’t use pre-stretch. Then, for five years, the opportunity cost about $35,000 ($32.000). Do you wish it were you?

The process of increasing production is pre-stretching. Do you know when that happened? It occurs when two rollers of the film delivery system rotate. Because of the two different speeds, the film stretches out. For example, if the film would be longer than 6,000 feet in 100 percent pre-stretching, it would become 12,000 feet.

For a while, most of the old machines lost the value of stretching. Sometimes they don’t even have the prestretched rollers.

However, it is very fortunate that most of the new stretching packages can be pre-stretched between 100% and 300%. The end result is that you can put thousands of dollars back in your wallet.

Labor saving

Do you have any idea how to control low productivity growth? You can automate with elastic packaging.

The most productive time in America has passed, and that’s what many people think. The way we measure it is wrong, and that’s what a lot of people think. There are other people who have different ideas. Since the recession, businesses have been afraid to invest in capital equipment, but where did their technology come from? In fact, these devices will provide technology for them.

Simply put, the output per working time is productivity. For whatever reason, productivity has slowed. Very important is the health of the enterprise.

Now, many processes in manufacturing are likely to change and become more automated, which can be helpful in productivity. As we all know, stretching is a process.

Today, many companies use stretched packaging. In fact, this way of transporting goods is not only outdated, but it can’t produce the best results. Now, operators can use tools such as stretch-wrappers to reduce the amount of work associated with packaging each load. At the same time, a simple productivity boost has been provided.

What is the other role of stretching packaging? It can reduce the risk of product damage and the risk of injury. Movie consumption can also be reduced. All of these things that you see, this is a valuable bonus.

If manual packaging has been abandoned by you, then, if you want to increase productivity if you want to increase productivity in new and existing machines, there are many ways to do this. I was wondering if you have automatic cutting. Can you achieve weighing and packing at the same time? Or, can the management workflow go in and out of your stretch packaging and conveyor belts? Now, this is another chance to rethink and reorganize your stretching packaging process. It can maximize the value of the labor you put in.

 

Lean Operations

Do you know what a more efficient warehouse operation is? It’s 9 DC and warehouse slots.

If you’re a manufacturing company or dealer, using a warehouse or distribution center is something you might be doing. Your goal is to ensure that you can store inventory and replenish the store. At the same time, it can be more convenient to deliver goods to customers. Or it can be more convenient to receive goods made or distributed.

First, if you’re going to run a slot for DC or a warehouse, do you have enough tools?

As we all know, if it is goods warehouse, it before starting a project, you have a corridor, the gulf, shelves, and must ensure that have the slot position, and they have clearly marked with signs of large and easy to recognize. A shelf or part of the whole shelf can be a slot. What is the role of your warehouse management system? They must be able to reflect these storage locations in time, and their purpose is to control the location appropriately in your repository or DC. As a consultant, I saw a lot of warehouses and DCs that didn’t have a location, and I had already entered. It can be said that the logo of the warehouse operation management is very bad. You leave it to people who have been there for a long time, “it’s in their heads.” “All the other members of the warehouse operation team have to ask a question, and the question is what is this person? It is clear that this is a waste of time and efficiency. For senior warehouse workers, this could be job security. But if this “knowledgeable person” happens, then this is not a good, qualified management. And, you know, that’s probably going to happen.

The most appropriate storage location for each item in the warehouse is slotting. Sometimes, the benefits of proper warehouse management are ignored by the head of the warehouse operation. Maybe these people don’t even know what a slot is, or what are the potential benefits? Can you bring efficiency to the warehouse? What these people need is just a slot for education.

It is important to understand the slotting of the warehouse. You have to understand: if it’s in its place, then, everything has a place.

Do you know the basic information in the field that we are familiar with every day? We can look at that. In daily activities, we all know that you do a lot of things. If you have time to look at your kitchen cabinets, you may find a problem with the dishes and cooking utensils you often use in front of an accessible cabinet. If you live in a snowy area, place the snow shovel near the garage door, or the door of your home is very likely to happen.
