As the owner of a smaller manufacturing operation, you are always looking for economical ways to improve productivity and efficiency. An automatic or semi-automatic cartoning machine is just that. However, many makers of manufacturing equipment only focus on huge machines that can put out thousands of cartons per hour. While these are great for bigger operations, it leaves the smaller ones out in the cold.

Here at Econocorp, we know how important it is to bring automation to the smaller manufacturers too. We have three excellent choices for small to medium-sized operations: the Mini Monoseal, the Twinseal, and the E-System 2000. (more…)

2020 was not a great year for the packaging industry (or any industry for that matter). With COVID-19 looming heavily over global business and trade, combined with decreased consumer demand, packaging manufacturers have suffered great losses.

The good news is that 2021 is projected to be the year of the packaging industry rebound. According to Beroe Inc. via PR Newswire, the glass, rigid, and flexible packaging industries are all expected to increase production and revenues over 2021. They also project that North America will continue to hold at least 70% of the market share in flexible packaging. (more…)

The power of high-quality packaging is just as strong as having a great product. No matter how innovative your merchandise is, if it is poorly packaged, it will never make it into the customer’s hands.

Why Many Companies are Choosing Paper-Based Packaging

  • Post author:
  • Post category:News

The type of packaging you choose for your product, from the material to the design to the way that it opens, tells a story about you and your company. The wasteful, single-use plastic packaging of the 1900s is finally giving way to paper-based packaging. But, why the shift to paper? Well, paper-based packaging offers many benefits that its competition just can’t match:

Reusable, Recyclable, & Sustainable

The main draw of paper-based packaging for society is its status as the most environmentally-friendly packaging option. Paper-based packaging can not only be made of recycled paper but it too can be recycled, maintaining a cycle of reusability that you’ll never get with plastics. 

For paper-based packaging that is made from freshly cut trees, manufacturers have begun replanting those trees with fast-growing, highly sustainable forests so that harvests will not affect local ecology. (more…)

Precious time on your production line is frequently taken up by packaging your finished products. Depending on the complexity of your packaging and sealing needs, you may require more time to package your products than they took to make. Not to mention you’ll likely need multiple employees to accomplish your daily packaging needs.

Adding just one continuous motion cartoner to your operation can revolutionize your entire production line.
