Your packaging line may be the final step in the process of creating your products and sending them on their way to customers, but it is one of the most essential aspects of your facility. Without packaging, your goods would have no way of getting to consumers safely and without damage. There are plenty of options out there for entry-level packaging equipment, and IPS Packaging & Automation is well equipped to assist.
In the latter half of 2021, labor shortages are taking place all over the United States. When it gets difficult to find employees, another solution to get goods out the door and into the hands of your customers becomes essential. This is where packaging automation comes into play. Through efficiency, accuracy, and ease of use, a one-time investment in packaging automation mitigates the labor shortages faced by your company.

Many businesses around the globe are fortunate to reach a point when there comes too much work for manual labor alone to be able to handle. At this stage of the business lifecycle, you have to make some important decisions about how to best manage the workload. You’ve likely considered adding more staff to package your goods, but labor costs are constantly on the rise and you’d rather focus your trusted team on tasks that require more critical thought than sealing boxes or applying labels. Thankfully, this is where packaging automation shines. Adding automated packaging machines to your line can improve your output, reduce worker injury, provide high quality results, and save you money. As you begin to add packaging equipment to your line, keep in mind that end-of-line packaging automation is one of the best places to start.
