If you are looking to invest in a packaging machine that offers high-speed operation, low maintenance, and consistent quality output, you will need to consider several factors and look for a brand that is known to offer the best performance and reliability.
Considering which machine or manufacturer is the best is absolutely subjective as different things will have different values for each business and the ‘best’ machine will be the one that fits the requirements of packaging volume, product, production process, physical space, finances, business size You. your business and specific packaging needs.
To get a better understanding of what to look for when purchasing packaging equipment, we spoke to Shaun Bryce of Melbpack who has more than 14 industry experiences.
Here’s what he said:
Investing in a packaging machine likely means that reliability and performance will be a key component as the entire business distribution process depends on the performance and reliability of these machines. In this post, we share some of the main considerations when choosing the packaging machine that best suits your product and facility.
Best performance Shrink-Wrapping Machine
We have shared our evaluation of two packaging machines selected for their proven performance in a fast-paced production environment. Our team of packaging experts recommend VoltaSemi Automatic and Servos machines. This machine is highly rated for performance, durability, capability, ease of repair, speed, customer service, and reliability.
Construction and design are major considerations when you think about reliability in a shrink sealing machine. New technology and smart design in packaging solutions means Volta machines have been designed with fewer moving parts meaning less hassle and breakable stuff.
Over time overall efficiency has improved, motors have been redesigned to use less electricity, parts such as the timing belt have been strengthened and business owners spend less on maintenance and repairs.
While we understand the Volta shrink wrap is a big investment, we also know it is one of our best machines offering long term quality output your business can rely on.
This machine is another example of innovative design technology where the previous mechanical repetitive opening and closing of a moving roller carriage was time-consuming, has now been replaced by a reciprocating head with upper and lower jaws that open and close meaning this machine is more fast, requires less maintenance, and offers outstanding reliability.
Looking for the Fastest?
The speed and efficiency of operations will depend on your business industry, whether the production line runs 24/7, one shift a day or only three times a month. The type of application process also affects the speed of whether you are doing Shrink-wrapping or stretch wrapping.
We usually determine the speed of your operational needs by doing line audits very often not machine speed but about checking the whole process and optimizing the line.
Looking for a Reliable Stretch Wrap?
If you are shipping pallets in bulk, then a stretch wrapper with a high degree of reliability will be at the top of your ‘must have’ list. Our service team found that the Nobel wrap provides consistency, speed, reliability and reliability in these environments.
Nobel’s customer service is outstanding and our ‘go-to’ brand for customers looking for pallet wrap. Nobel keeps extensive records of all their machines, which is very helpful when service is needed and with proper use and maintenance, these machines provide many years of uninterrupted service.
Looking for something easy to fix?
All machines have integrated moving parts that experience wear and tear with continuous use, so ongoing service and repair will at some point become part of the mechanical maintenance process.
Extreme sealer technology and design incorporate the understanding that repairs happen, and they design their machines so they are easy to service. For example, covers are easy to open, all parts of the machine open, motors are direct driven, mounted outside the frame, and easy to service and access.
When deciding and evaluating which machine is the most financially viable for you or the most reliable, easiest to repair, or fastest, we start by evaluating our customer’s needs before the actual machine.
We always consider your business needs and overall production goals to determine the best packaging machine option for you. We also offer a free tool to help you determine the best buy for your facility needs that allows you to compare the required production speed, packaging machine size, and available space in your facility to implement an efficient packaging process.
