For small products, it’s not enough to just box the individual items. You’ll also need to arrange them in trays so that they can easily be case packed, shipped, and placed on the retail shelves. To do this, you’ll need to either fold trays by hand or use automated tray-forming equipment. In this post, we’ll discuss the benefits of opting for automated tray-forming equipment for your packaging line.

No More Folding By Hand

Anyone who has ever had the job of hand folding trays for products would be the first to tell you that you need to invest in automated tray formers. Folding by hand is time-consuming, prone to errors, and a waste of valuable human labor. The repetitive nature of the job can lead to stress-related orthopedic injuries or other conditions that could end up costing your business if treatment is paid through worker’s compensation. Save your employees for more complex projects and let our high-quality tray formers take care of that busy work.

Decreases Labor Costs

As mentioned above, hand-folding trays just aren’t a good use of human labor. Instead, our automated tray formers can fold up to 25 trays per minute, with each one coming out exactly the same. That’s consistency, speed, and precision that you just can’t get with manual-folding, and that all translates into lower operating and labor costs.

Improves Your Brand Image

The consistency that automated tray forming equipment brings to your packaging line is more valuable than you think. Customers desire a consistently positive experience. If they purchase your product once, and it is well-packaged, they will expect that same quality the next time they purchase it. When you use manual tray forming, consistency suffers. A predictable, consistent experience will turn new customers into repeat customers while boosting your brand’s overall image, and that’s what an automated tray former can provide. Your products will be orderly and neatly arranged, and possibly even ready for display right in the tray. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
