PACKAGING manufacturer, Anzpac Services, plans to significantly expand production following the installation of a new automatic carton sealer from Cling Packaging Systems.
Anzpac Services has merged two lines into one with the new sealer, which will eventually handle the workload of four existing Cling sealers according to Anzpac's Carlos Schwinidt.
"Merging lines optimises valuable floor space, reduces hazards and lowers running costs. The sealer has a capacity of eight cartons per minute and we are currently averaging about two per minute,” he said.
The new sealer operates non-stop and handles varying shipper configurations without the need for adjustment.
Three shifts of 150 Anzpac staff ensure 24-hour production of packaging for the tobacco and fast food industries. Board is converted into burger collars and scoop cartons for fries.
While the reliability of the older Cling machines was an important consideration when selecting the automatic sealer, Carlos first visited other factories to see how the equipment performed.
In addition to the sealers, Anzpac Services' stable of packaging equipment includes a Cling stretch wrapper, which Carlos said have been equally as impressive. Cling Packaging Systems 03 9466 3787.
