When we’re talking to businesses about integrated packaging solutions, we always emphasise the need to invest in equipment that both supports their current activities and is capable of facilitating future growth.
Over the last two years the North West’s e-commerce and logistics sector has continued to grow. Here at Clingfoil we’ve experienced a surge in demand for the wide range of packaging products we hold in stock, which includes high performance stretch wrap, tapes and adhesives, strapping and seals, boxes and paper.
Now we were heading in to our busiest time of year…
It was time to take our own advice.
Stretch and rewind
In July we welcomed the arrival of the CG Automatic Converting Equipment 220 Fully Automatic Rewind Machine which is designed for the conversion of master rolls of stretch film in to pre-stretched rolls up to 240mm in diameter on a variety of different core diameters. Integrated with an outfeed conveyer, it takes the core material, glues film to it and rewinds the required length cutting the finished product and loading the roll on to a conveyor belt.
This fantastic piece of kit has already increased our capacity to produce stretch wrap by 25%. That’s 500 more rolls every day! And we can now offer customers shorter lead times too, from seven working days to two.
We’re also happy to say that the production target we set when the machine was installed, 2.5 million metres per week, has now been achieved and even exceeded!
One stop shop
We’ve also invested in an additional conveyor, case sealer and inline printer as part of our commitment to providing customers with a one stop shop for all their packaging requirements.
