Challenge

Through the acquisition of 4 separate manufacturing plants, our client ended up with a range of film suppliers providing a range of different stretch wrapping products on three different types of stretch wrapping machinery. Following this merge Universal Packaging were approached to audit the pallet stretch wrapping usage across all four facility’s to gain an in-depth working knowledge of each sites unique production processes, load profiles and stretch wrap requirements.

Solution

Universal Packaging coordinated a site audit and conducted tests to establish the exiting load containment, yield and application perimeters. Following this audit Universal Packaging identified the areas of potential improvement and recommend machinery upgrades and film changes. Exiting power pre-stretch film carriage drive roller compound in the can filling production area was upgraded, thus allowing the use of a much lower gauge film whilst maintaining adequate film force and load integrity. Both the can making and powder blending lines were aligned to use the same gauge film, consolidating the number of films on site and streamline their ordering process.

Outcome

Consolidation of films suppliers to one and consolidation of stretch film used to two types. Film savings of 22% have been achieved. The implementation of Universal Packaging’s unique SCOPE program ensures regular onsite monitoring which gives the site personnel the assurance that loads are leaving the facility with the optimum stretch film application.
