End-of-line solutions to eliminate labor shortages

January 03, 2024 | Quinn Harker


End-of-line packaging is an essential part of any manufacturing line. Packaging products correctly and consistently is critical as one of the last steps in your operation. Traditionally, labor shortages highly affect end-of-line packaging, which consists of manual, repetitive, and labor-intensive tasks. Introducing automation to complete some or all of these tasks eliminates labor shortages while increasing productivity, reducing injuries, improving quality, and producing fast ROI.

End-of-line packaging solutions for your manufacturing floor

To improve your assembly line and eliminate labor shortages, we suggest introducing automation for the manual tasks of erecting and taping, packing, and palletizing. We offer a range of custom and standardized solutions to meet the needs of your manufacturing floor.

Custom solutions are ideal for those with unique specifications and a desire for a solution that can grow and evolve alongside the business. When designing applications through the Manufacturing Automation Platform, our library of 1,000+ modular components enables easy changes as operations scale, ensuring that both your current and future packaging needs are always met.

Standardized solutions are ideal for customers with more simple use cases that don’t require equipment modifications. These solutions are also ideal for manufacturers looking to begin automating in under two weeks.
