Packaging solutions from PALpack: Your one-stop-shop for end-of-line automation solutions

End-of-line automation refers to the packaging solutions employed in the final stages of a manufacturing process, where products are weighed, packaged, labelled, palletised and wrapped in preparation for storage or distribution. At PALpack, we work with trusted providers including Lita, Europack, Technipes and VAI to supply equipment for everything from sack-filling and shrink wrapping to check weighing and banding. In this blog, we’ll explore each type of machinery in more detail.

The four biggest obstacles to automation and how to overcome them

We’ve written a lot about how to automate and the benefits of investing in automation - and there’s no doubt that in a competitive and fast-paced landscape, automation goes a long way towards boosting the productivity, efficiency and profitability of manufacturing operations. Yet despite this understanding manufacturers are still reluctant to make the move to a more automated production line, put off by obstacles such as high costs, lack of floor space or the overwhelm of choice. Here, we examine some of the potential barriers to automation and look at how they can be overcome.

Energy-efficiency in manufacturing: Europack palletisers and other ways to reduce your carbon footprint

Industries including automotive, electronics, steel, cement, food production and more all contribute to emissions through energy consumption, industrial processes and waste generation - and therefore have a responsibility to take action to reduce their carbon footprint.
