Before you buy: factors that influence wrapper and bundler purchases

14.08.2020 | Dave Knutson | 2 min Read Topics | ,

Packaging is a constant need, yet a market of shifting dynamics. Current trends could be — and have been — replaced by more popular iterations. Changes in packaging standards necessitate change in materials and/or processes.

Such shifting priorities can complicate packaging equipment selection. How do tissue converters confidently choose wrappers and bundlers that have the core package formats to meet current market demand, yet also have the flexibility to adapt to future roll product needs?

Wider perspectives on packaging equipment

Flexibility continues to be the key for packaging. Product roll dimensions and requested product formats continue to change, which makes large-format wrappers a priority. In addition, the diversity of available bundle formats necessitates infeed systems for accurately managing and orienting rolls and packages.

Therefore, wrappers and bundlers that offer a wide range of formats seem like the safest investment option. While true to a degree, there are considerations beyond packaging needs that should be weighed into the decision, including:

  • Speed capabilities
  • Floor space requirements
  • Price

The wider perspective can change investment strategies. To accommodate all factors it’s not uncommon for tissue converters to pursue used wrappers and bundlers, especially when it comes to cost. Saving money upfront is compelling, but it warrants caution and a thorough equipment audit. Why? Used wrappers and bundlers often require replacement parts, rebuilt components, and updated electrical packages — items that can quickly put the price of the “bargain” equipment on par with new, more sophisticated wrappers and bundlers.

Assessing your line

Tissue manufacturers that understand key pieces of information about their lines are well-positioned to choose wrappers and bundlers that align with their business initiatives and customers’ goals. Before committing to either or both pieces of equipment, evaluate:

  • Line speeds
  • Line flow
  • Floor space
  • Maintenance requirements
  • Materials used
  • Number of package formats in use, and those that are anticipated
  • Need for and ease of changeovers

Dialing into the specifics also strengthens the expertise and value of partnerships tissue manufacturers maintain with trusted equipment suppliers such as Fabio Perini.

Proven packaging solutions 

Advancements in packaging and bundling equipment have spurred Fabio Perini innovations in simplifying format changes for operators and allowing for greater production scheduling flexibility:

  • Simplifying format changes for operators by automating machine adjustments instead of relying on time-consuming and inconsistent manual processes
