Taking the retail and e-commerce industry as an example, the order structure of these enterprises' customers is quite different, and packaging workers are required to have certain working experience to complete the process from packing box selection to sealing accurately and quickly. Even the efficiency that skilled workers can achieve is only 60-80 cartons per hour per person, while the efficiency of automatic packaging equipment is much higher.
However, the efficiency of the whole order sorting center has been greatly reduced, and the efficiency of the whole logistics sorting system has been reduced to a high level. If some orders with uniform specifications can be automatically packaged, the overall order processing efficiency of the logistics center can be greatly improved, the operation pressure of packaging workers can be reduced, and the dependence on personnel can be reduced.
In order to deliver goods accurately within the time required by customers and improve customer satisfaction, automated storage, goods to person picking and automatic packaging systems are used. Not only will the order processing capacity be doubled, the logistics reliability will be improved, but also the loading efficiency of freight cars can be improved, so as to optimize the transportation cost.
The quality of manual packaging depends entirely on the technical level and experience of packaging workers, so it is easy to appear uneven phenomenon. Artificial cartons are usually made up and down. The structural strength of the cartons is relatively low and the resistance to damage is poor. The protection of the products is mostly done by filling the inflatable bags manually or protecting the foam.
The traditional inflatable bag or foam occupies too much space, resulting in high vacancy rate in the package, wasting the transportation cost, or unable to fix the product in the carton. The transportation will cause sloshing and become a potential safety hazard.
In view of these problems, Shandong Hongbao Automation Co., Ltd. has made further solutions: automatic packaging equipment provides a full range of packaging solutions from carton forming to carton sealing, as well as product protection. The packaging machine uses the Tiandi cover carton to achieve better product protection, and can realize the automatic formation of the carton, put in and fix the heat shrinkable film. After the order product is put into the carton, the product is firmly fixed at the bottom of the carton through the drying channel shrinkage heat shrinkable film. No matter how bumpy during transportation, the product will not shake in the box.
At the same time, the bottom of the carton is designed with easy to tear strip, which is convenient for users to open the box and prevent the products from being unpacked and swapped during transportation, so as to ensure the safety of the products. This packaging method is especially suitable for high-value goods or special commodities, such as luxury goods, electronic products, cigarettes, drugs, etc.
Enterprises need to consider the above factors when choosing a suitable order packaging solution, and evaluate whether their pain points are the waste of packaging quality, personnel efficiency, packaging materials or transportation costs, or need to optimize the space utilization rate.
Aiming at the problems of packaging quality and personnel efficiency. From the point of view of saving packaging materials, choosing Tiandi cover carton is a more economical scheme in the market at present. It can save 7% of the consumables compared with the top and bottom flip type cartons, and up to 35% of the consumables compared with one piece of molded carton.
In addition, the sealing machine can automatically detect the height of the inner package, cut the carton, adjust the height of the sealing box to match the inner package, so as to minimize the space occupied by the delivery carton, and finally improve the loading rate of the truck and save the transportation cost.
Compared with manual order packaging, the automatic packaging solution has the advantages of saving consumables and manpower, improving operation efficiency and packaging quality, and environmental protection. In the future, with the upgrading of enterprise logistics, packaging will develop towards automation and intelligence.
