As a member of the liquid packaging business, you know that several steps in the process must be followed precisely. A few essential parts of the process are ensuring that each container is filled to the correct level, securely capping each container, and ensuring that labels are applied correctly. When you rely on manually-operated machines for these tasks, you run the risk of human error, creating waste and slowing down your production speeds. This is why many in the liquid filling industry opt to add automation to their liquid packaging process. When you design your automatic filling system with Filamatic, you can enjoy the following business benefits.
Decreased Product Waste
One of the most significant benefits of moving to automation is that it helps you decrease product waste. When you fill containers by hand, it’s easy to overfill or underfill them. However, automated liquid fillers dispense the same amount of liquid into each container every time, so you can be sure you are efficiently using all your product.
Improve Production Safety
Automated machines will also enhance the safety of your production facility by reducing the chance of injuries on the job. Packaging operations can be one of the most dangerous types of manufacturing jobs, so incorporating automation can help keep your employees away from direct contact with the machinery when operating.
Reduced Labor Costs
In addition to producing less product waste and increasing employee safety, automating your liquid packaging process can help you reduce your labor costs. When filing containers by hand, you need multiple employees on the production line to keep up with demand. When you use automation, you can do more with less. If you are looking for ways to improve your bottom line, automation can help you cut back on some labor-related expenses.
Eliminate Packaging Errors
Automation is significantly helpful to many packaging companies as it helps eliminate detrimental errors in your packaging process. If labels are misapplied, or containers are improperly filled, your products may be rejected by consumers, and your brand can be tarnished. Alternatively, you may have to have entire shipments returned to your facility and lose a significant profit. When using automation, you can be sure to avoid these expensive mistakes.
Increase Your Production Rate
Of course, automating your liquid packaging process can help increase your production rates. Work must go much slower when filling containers by hand, especially if you want accuracy and precision. When using automated machinery, you can fill more containers in less time without sacrificing product quality. This speed means you can meet current consumer demand and even ramp up production when necessary.
