Increase Productivity in Automated Lines with PolyFlex’s Injection-Molded Trays

Thursday, August 3, 2017

If you've been looking for ways to increase productivity, profitability, and the safety of your employees, automation is the answer. But, with automation, you have a few additional variables to consider. Robots – any fully-automated system – require precision. It is essential that a robot is "fed" a consistent, reliable stream of products in the same dimensions, in the same intervals, and in the same packaging.
