Equipment Automation: Labor

Labor is expensive! That is why so many USA companies sent their manufacturing overseas or hired overseas employees. Others decided to automate their process to reduce the cost of labor.

According to IPS Packaging, “Most companies producing packaged products estimate that up to 60% of their total packaging costs are solely labor-related.”

Imagine cutting that number by 40-50%. On average, this can save companies $40,000-$80,000 per year in wages at $10 per hour.

Those savings can potentially pay for a completely automated process, if not more, with increased margins and profit as time progresses.

Robots and artificial intelligence are a common interpretation of intelligent automation. However, an automated process can range from a single machine, such as a case packer, to a complete line and ultimately updated technology.

Our engineers are available to discuss your complete automation machinery or line requirements and help you determine the best solution for your application.

In the end, you are not only saving money due to labor costs. You are also increasing the quality of your product and overall company profit.

Furthermore, with a completely automated packaging line, output consistency, efficiency, and productivity can also be achieved.
