Production control is an excellent way to streamline processes and maximize your business’s workflow efficiency while reducing production costs. Automated liquid packaging machines are a key component of this kind of seamless system. When you integrate automated liquid packaging machines from Filmatic, you are taking a significant step towards speeding up your filling and packaging process and ensuring consistent high-quality for your products.
Automation and Production Control
Production control is a system that helps organize and streamline the work processes within a company, including human resources and automated machinery. This process can help companies meet production targets and manage expenses to stay competitive within their industry.
Production control is especially useful for production lines that use automatic machines. It can help you ensure efficiency for your machines, informing you if some stations need to move faster or slower to keep up with the production rate. Automated packaging machines improve your production process in a few ways, listed below.
Packaging machines work at a known rate rather than unpredictable manual labor, so production planners can better predict production levels and allocate resources as necessary.
High-quality automated liquid packaging machines can provide you with valuable data right away regarding your production. You can be aware of problems or quality control issues as soon as they happen and deal with them much faster, minimizing potential losses and waste.
Automated Stop and Start Controls
Automated packaging machines make it much easier to switch machines on and off centrally. If any problems occur, like spills or a jammed conveyor, you can stop the machines to resolve the issue quickly. Automated stop-and-start controls are especially helpful for safety shutoffs.
Adapt Filling Volumes
Some production lines may cover multiple products and fill containers of different sizes. Production control can make it easy to change the filling volume when switching over to a new container or product. If quality control notices containers with incorrect volumes, you can also easily update filling levels without shutting down production for long.
Adjust Production Rates
When using automated liquid packaging, you can more easily adjust the production rate across your machines when demand changes. Previously, your operators might have had to cross the factory floor to change each machine individually. You can also slow production down if you need. Adjusting your rates prevents employees from becoming overwhelmed and reduces the risk of injury and cutting corners.
