Producing thousands of beads and fasteners a day, the manual assembly line process was costing the company valuable time and money.
An operator opens a bag, counts pieces or beads, places them in the bag, closes the bag, and places a label on the bag. Realizing that they could be saving money, the manufacturing company decided to contact IPS Packaging to find out if IPS could help them restructure their packaging operation. After speaking with a trained packaging specialist and taking his advice, the jewelry manufacturing company decided to purchase a Sharp MAX™ 12-inch bagger with an integrated thermal imprinter.
The jewelry production business was struggling due to:
- Inefficient packaging process
- Wasted time and resources
- Manual counting inaccuracy
- Customer Returns
The jewelry company was relieved once they purchased the Sharp MAX™ 12-inch bagging system; it increased productivity, improved the speed of the packaging process, and conserved time and resources. IPS Packaging’s Sharp MAX™ bagger prints a label directly onto the bag. It blows open the bag, counts beads, and closes the bag. This bagging system can run 24 hours a day with just one operator overseeing it.
Following their purchase of the bagging system, the company has saved over 34% on material costs. The manufacturer has also increased their productivity by 63%. Counting accuracy has also improved due to machine-counting and loading. Fewer customer returns are reported and productivity is up to three times faster than before. IPS Packaging’s Sharp Max™ 12-inch bagger is a fully automated bagging system which allows the operator to set up the machine and move on to work on other tasks. It is truly an innovative system which utilizes the best technology available and saves companies time and money.
