We seldomly consider production changeovers and the costs when considering which is the perfect packaging machinery. In fact, changeover costs are usually written off as a miscellaneous loss. But for companies running a multitude of products through their high-capacity lines, this downtime cost starts to add up. It is estimated that for a one-hour daily changeover on a fairly significant packaging project with the line running 240 days per year, the annual cost is $1.8 million.
These machinery changeovers are non-productive labour costs that are a necessary part of running production, but it does increase the risk of issues arising such as increased product rejects, longer startup cycles and potential machine malfunctions if changeovers are done incorrectly.
Australia’s packaging industry is filled with machines that can “do the job” but there is only a few select manufacturers that do the job right. Providing the best pack presentation without compromise to machine efficiency or technology enhancements. When considering what is the right machinery for your business, be in the know about your maintenance costs, the changeover capability, and the room for expansion and optimisation – because you are investing for the future.
