A manufacturer for protein bar packaging recently moved relocated from a 50,000 square foot operation facility to a new 350,000-square-foot operation facility. This resulted in an assembly line production change where stand-up assembly packaging lines were converted to brand new automated packaging lines. In addition, there was a folding carton redesign where the Straight Tuck End folding cartons were replaced by new Top Kliklok folding cartons. The manufacturer also transitioned to and needed to integrate a new international packaging equipment supplier. Finally, the company needed a new documentation system for more accurate data collection and organization from start to finish.
The manufacturing company hired the MetaExpert, a packaging engineering expert with ample experience to design, measure, analyze, improve, and control the entire packaging process from location A to location B.
Over the course of an 18-month contract, the MetaExpert took the following actions and strategies to evaluate and retool the packaging manufacturer’s processes:
Thanks to the MetaExpert's acumen of packaging engineering and process improvement, the manufacturing company saw immediate and measurable results.
A skillful evaluation and overhaul of the packaging process by the MetaExpert yielded a massive increase in packaging speed from 30 bars/minute to 300 bars/minute. That’s a 900% increase in just 18 months!
