With the recent installation of a UHT production plant Universal Packaging were invited to help establish the correct wrapper set up and film application. The new UHT product was being stacked on a different pallet size with a different pallet profile to the existing powder pallets.
Dairy Company 2
Universal Packaging coordinated a site audit on the new fully automatic in-line stretch wrapper. We were able to draw on our extensive dairy industry knowledge and conduct industry standard tests to establish the load containment, yield and application parameters to ensure optimum load integrity, without over application of film.
Universal Packaging set up load containment benchmarks for the UHT pallets in terms of application settings, yield and film force standards. These are monitored and maintained through the implementation of Universal Packaging’s unique SCOPE program, which ensures regular onsite audits on both the powder and the UHT stretch wrappers to ensure that the wrapping of the loads is being done to the established benchmarks. If loads are being wrapped to levels outside the benchmarks this is highlighted and Universal Packaging works with the operators to realign the machinery with the benchmarks. SCOPE monitoring gives the site personnel the assurance that loads are leaving the facility with the correct stretch film application.
What Our Customers Say
I have modified that parameter which has increased the carriage speed and reduced the total cycle time by half a minute, so definitely a good result. Thanks for your help with this.
Our new stretch wrapper is performing very well. It’s amazing how well it works, we are getting a far better yield from our wrap and with the new automatic option the time to wrap each pallet has been reduced dramatically.
Today I made the decision to place an order for another pallet of stretch film from Universal Packaging after buying from another supplier for the last couple of months. The reason is very simple – we had some supply issues with the other supplier. With Universal, we can absolutely trust their service, delivery and back-up and their price is still competitive, so we’re back. All the best for you and your team – we really appreciate our partnership.
We have been testing different stretch wrap in the past and found that Universal Packaging supplies really great quality product. We wrap pallets tight and keeping them stable is very important. From great consistency in the stretch wrap to fast and responsive service, I highly recommend Universal Packaging to supply you with your wrapping requirements.
Universal Packaging’s film is excellent because the film clings to itself very well which means we don’t get tails or film unwinding off the pallet which had been an ongoing issue until now. This is very important for wrapping pallets in our dusty environment.
Universal has super service and we like the quality of the product because it helps us with production efficiencies.
You guys are great, fantastic service, next day delivery always. The Customer Service team seems to know who we are each time we ring up.
Universal Packaging has been supplying us with all of our stretch wrapping consumables for the last 4 years. Our experience in working with Universal Packaging is a very positive one.
