Integration, Packing Stations & Work Benches
Many retailers are citing that speed of packing is their main constraint at peak times. Integration helps you to remove the waste of your scarcest resource – time.
Our Protega team have over 25 years experience helping companies across multiple industries, to speed up work flow and design integrated solutions. This can improve operator working comfort as well as increase productivity.
From the beginning we work with you to make sure we have an in-depth understanding of your pick, packing and despatch requirements. Following the information gathering phase we offer proven ways of streamlining your processes. Which includes maximising the storage and positioning of supplies and equipment. In many cases we have been able to virtually double the output of a packing area by reducing operator movement whilst enhancing working environment.
Hexcel Wrap Bench
The use of Hexcel Wrap – a paper alternative to bubble wrap – has been made even easier with the development of an integrated dispenser.
Housed under the bench, the Hexcel paper is simply passed through a pair of rollers and dispensed onto the bench at the optimal position for the packers.
This design maximises the usable area of the bench, and dramatically increases efficiency. To reload a section of the bench lifts up and allows rolls to be placed easily and ergonomically.
Our new integrated Hexcel Bench has been developed as a direct result of customers asking for ways to speed up their processes during the pandemic. The Hexcel packing bench provides a space saving haven. Not only is the storage of packing materials virtually eliminated, the Hexcel Wrap – a paper alternative to bubble wrap – is on hand to dispense right at the point of use, and uses no valuable bench space.
The original paper bubble wrap introduced into the UK by Protega Global is housed under the bench. Designed specifically for reducing breakages and surface protection. Used win conjunction with our industry leading Protega Paper Cushioning – you are likely to see a reduction in breakages of up to 50%.
IMPROVE PACKING SPEEDS
With the surge of online shopping continuing to 2022, customers are expecting speedy deliveries and the increasingly more popular sustainable packaging options.
Your packing benches are in the heart of your packing stations and therefore are key for your operations to run smoothly, having a custom-built packing bench with an integrated paper machine, conveyor and under-bench paper bubble wrap dispenser can significantly improve your packing times.
With the combined improved packing speeds, space saved and training provided to staff by Protega – our clients are able to increase the amount of packages that go out daily.
Consultation & Design
We carry out an initial survey to gain an operational overview of your organisation. We look at workflow, materials handling and packing requirements and configure an efficient and safe work area.
CAD designs show what the finished project could look like, and, subject to input from all project stakeholders and agreement on the final design, a fixed cost will be given.
At Protega we manufacture bespoke equipment to meet the needs of your packing environment.
This can include bespoke packaging benches, conveyor systems and storage systems and, if relevant, all in combination with the Protega paper machines and other equipment.
For new warehouses we can advise and plan on the despatch area, security cages, supervisor stations, integrated conveyor systems and packaging machinery.
Any company project manager looking for support to create a design for the operations of a new warehouse can be assured of our collaboration with your project team to create the best and most efficient solution possible.
