Improved operational efficiency for a leading provider of cartons
A leading producer of carton and leaflet packaging for the pharmaceutical, healthcare and personal care sectors. With its state of the art production facilities they manufacture high quality cartons for many of the leading brands.
With its automated manufacturing lines running smoothly the next challenge was to increase the possible throughput to make the whole operation more efficient.
However, with the operators having to manually form and tape the cartons before filling them with product, this was not possible.
A decision was made to invest in some simple carton erecting automation to provide ready cartons on demand.
The Comarme F2000 system was chosen because of its compact footprint and flexibility to produce the full range of cartons used at the desired throughput.
We always thought it would be a bit of a struggle to fit this equipment in but we were pleasantly surprised with how little space is actually required for it.
