Bakeline, a national producer of baked goods, needed help with throughput. Because the baked items were delicate, operators were erecting and filling shipping containers by hand. While breakage was low, the process was labor intensive and expensive.
The Hughes Enterprises team studied Bakeline’s situation and needs and recommended the Combi Ergopack Hand Station. This combination case erector, hand-packing station, and case sealer enables Bakeline’s operators to inspect products before inserting them into pre-formed corrugated shipping containers. Once filled, the box is moved into the case sealer for automatic closure and shipping.
Bakeline was able to dramatically increase the number of boxes shipped each day while decreasing the labor costs associated with the process.
Major savings for the company with a quick payback on their investment in the Combi Ergopack system.
