With the most approriate applications for pre-made pouches, Schur Packaging’s Kevin Howard tells FP his take on the industry and how machienry can help improve production.
Defferences between Pre-made Pouch and Rollstock
Defferences between Pre-made Pouch and Rollstock has been analyzed by Kevin Howard: pre-made pouches coupled with an effective fill/seal machine provide package design flexibility and can offer a simpler plant operating environment. While rollstock can offer a good total cost solution for relatively simple package designs with limited SKU/high volume products.
Based on the analysis that a packaging system comprised of pre-made pouches and a fill/seal machine can focus their energies on their core competencies and not have all of the resources needed to run and maintain a complex packaging conversion operation at the same time, He also stated a tremendous reduction in changeover time and associated costs, such as the packaging and product waste generated in the changeover process
“This combination of package design and operations benefits from a high quality pre-made pouching system, allows growth minded small to mid-size companies the ability to offer comparable or better packaging solutions as their larger competitors, but with a fraction of the capital investment. Large companies can benefit from this technology in their efforts to launch new products and seasonal promotions without sacrificing plant capacity.” Kevin Howard has maintained in his report.
Improve the filling proscess and help customer reach its ultimate goal
Concerning how can machinery help improve the filling proscess and help customer to reach its ultimate goal, how to overcome operational cahllenges to commercialize the creative ideas and concepts brought forth by packaging designers and marketers becomes significantly important because packaging offering robust colors and features, along with flexibility in shape, size and film structures can help drive the consumer’s buying choices.
Kevin Howard has said that they satisfy plant operations requirements to fill their bags manually or with automated filling methods while enabling the creative freedom of the packaging designer’s desire to offer custom shapes, sizes, bag features and with high quality 10 color flexographic printing.
