Tray packing machinery including tray packers are common in the food and beverage industry and fits cardboard trays or boxes to items, often to create multiple packs before distribution.
Why use tray packers
Most industrial manufacturing factories deal with large-scale production every day. If companies are still relying on human labour for their packaging needs, this can slow down the entire production and take employees away from other more valuable tasks.
A tray packer machine improves efficiency which saves time and money, and subsequently creates a smoother production process.
What does a tray packer do?
As the name implies, a tray packer packs trays. This is the process of efficiently placing multiple products into usually cardboard trays at one time. The machine takes over the manual need to have employees pick and pack each individual item into a tray. Tray packer machines are compact so can utilise space in the production environment, and have a variety of speeds and settings to allow for a variety of items to be placed into the selected trays.
The benefits of using a tray packer
Tray packers reduce labour costs as having automated systems in warehouses reduces human interaction with the picking and packing process, meaning their time can be used elsewhere.
Ultimately humans make mistakes. Packing the wrong items or the wrong number of items into the tray leads to having to repack the tray and therefore uses more material. Having a tray packer in place reduces or even eliminates this from happening which in turn means that less material is wasted helping the environment, and massively reduces the loss of costs and production times.
