Top Time-Saving Packaging Tools & Machines
When you’re running a business, time is an extremely valuable resource. If there’s a task that must be completed often that can be done in half the time, that can be a huge savings! If you’re doing any packaging, then you probably understand what we’re talking about. Packaging is something that can end up taking quite a bit of your time, especially if you want your packages to both hold up during shipping and look great to the end user.
There are a couple packaging tools and machines that can really speed up your process if you’re at the point of needing that kind of solution. Here are a few time savers that we recommend!
Case Sealer or WAT Machine
Taping is one of the most mundane tasks you can have to do, but an important enough one to pay extra attention to. Having your packages rip open mid-shipment would be, well, really unfortunate. So, choosing the kind of tape and method of adhering that’s right for your application is hugely important.
If you’re moving beyond low-volume, it’s probably time to consider a case sealer or water-activated tape (WAT) machine. Imagine just rolling a package along and seeing tape just being applied without having to do it yourself, or grabbing a pre-cut, wetted strip from a machine so that you can just put it right on the box.
In our opinion, the FillPack TT is one of the best upgrades you can make in terms of inside the box. Picture this: you’re standing at your packaging station with a pile of boxes to fill. Each time you grab a new box, you step on a foot pedal to get the exact amount of void-filling paper that you need. Just imagine the time you’d save! This machine easily attaches to your station, giving you the perfect fast packaging layout. Learn more about the Ranpak FillPak TT
