Wednesday, January 31, 2018

If, like most businesses, you’re interested in saving time, money, and space, then returnable shipping containers are the shipping solution that you’ve been looking for. While single-use cardboard packaging is great for certain things, it comes with a number of “hidden” costs attached. First, there’s the matter of sourcing new packaging after you’ve used your current stock. Second, there’s the labor involved in assembling and breaking down your boxes. And third, there’s the amount of space unused – and expended – packaging takes up in your facility.

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. Without this precision, the line falters and the benefits of automating are lost. Thankfully, injection-molded trays from PolyFlex are built with precision in mind, to your specifications, and with the primary goal of keeping your line moving.
