    Cost saving

“It was not necessary to make a full business calculation of the pay-back period. The ‘offsite’ waste reduction of 66% alone convinced the senior management …Thanks to the Caregrip™ anti-slip paper, the stacked products remain on the pallet and the downtime is reduced. In fact, there have been no stoppages caused by dropped products since the shift to PAL-Cut and Caregrip™ sheets. A welcome side-effect is the near elimination of fork-lift trucks in the packaging zone and that has been a wish for many years.”

Introduction

A large oriental food specialist got in touch after engaging with several other companies, who couldn’t help them. Working with their existing machinery, the company wanted to reduce packaging costs, but without replacing machinery.

The Challenge

After engaging with several other companies, with no luck, the oriental food manufacturer got in touch with Lindum to see if we could help reduce their packaging costs. Pallet wrapping machinery isn’t cheap, so after investing in core brake machines for their packaging operations, they wanted to be able to ensure the film they were using provided the best possible performance and they were using the right amount – and nothing more. Despite the significant investment, all previous advice that had been received was to replace the machinery in order to achieve their objectives. Following consultation with the team here at Lindum, we arranged a site visit to conduct a packaging audit to analyse their operations and look for solutions.

The Solution

After conducting a packaging audit at the company’s manufacturing site, and consulting with the team there, the Lindum team found a proactive way forward. We discovered they were using a 23mu film, which was too thick, and did not stretch as required for the machines that were in use. It was suggested that switching to Linudm’s 6mu Carewrap film would be better suited to the machines, as it is a pre-stretched film – which their current film wasn’t. This would mean it would complement the existing machinery, and working in combination would mean that their existing machinery was suitable, would not need replacing and the packaging line would be much more productive than before.

Results & Outcome

The results went far beyond their original objective when getting in touch with Lindum. Not only did we solve their problem of their pallet wrap working perfectly with their existing machinery, and it not needing to be replaced, but by switching to a different stretch film managed to help them incidentally achieve huge savings. By switching to a thinner film the amount of plastic saved in their packaging was huge – an incredible 83.2% plastic waste saved by switching to a different stretch film. On top of this, the cost of the new film also meant a packaging cost saving of 66.6%. Achieving the original objective, and exceeding all expectations, with significant plastic and cost savings, shows the value Lindum can bring to any packaging operations.
