Process of a product development goes through core stages, dedicated to elaborate specifically what the customer finally seeks and buys. But all this work would not make sense if there was not a distribution phase. The promise that an article reaches consumers in optimum conditions, after being mobilized from the factory, depends in part on the packaging machines used.
Quality assurance is common to the whole merchandise. Everything you want to distribute must be properly packed and prepared so since leaving in large quantities from the place of manufacture until it is placed individually in the exhibitors, it does not have direct contact with the different agents involved in its transfer. Also it has to ensure several layers of wrapping depending on its fragility.
In addition it becomes imperative today, due to massive growth of industry, to take this protection procedure to levels where it can respond adequately. Appropriate devices need to be designed for the form, type and material that shield the minimum pieces of consumption. On the other hand, they have to satisfy the movement of big amounts of items in a competitive way.
Packaging was originally made manually, a human chain, but technological advance has succeeded in creating machines that optimize many of its associated factors. They allow:
- Provide more space for production in factories and intermediate buffering.
- Wrap a larger number of goods per unit of time. And this is vital because although it is at the end of the productive chain can become a bottleneck for fabrication capacity.
- Answer back faster to shoppers’ requirements as products are delivered immediately after their elaboration.
Another factor that plays a role is the manufacturer ability to commit delivery of huge, but segmented batches, since he can divide production for more customers, being able to reply to their necessities for a long time without undermining his own inventories and receivers’ storage spaces.
It is not only a guarantee of the purchase; it is a cascade of them. It consents each client, in the process of merchandise transference, receive what he has requested. In the same way it converts him in an efficient supplier in its delivery to those who in turn depend on him.
