End-of-line automation can boost efficiency and accuracy in manufacturing.

When your company is responsible for manufacturing many items and meeting high consumer demand, you must use every tool. One of the essential ways to improve productivity and ensure consistent product quality is by using end-of-line automation in your production lines. Automated machinery from AP Dataweigh, Inc., such as checkweighers, metal detectors, and labeling machines, will help you meet higher demands, allocate labor, and improve production rates. 

Meet Higher Demand with End-of-Line Automation 

As the population grows and more customers demand a variety of products and goods, manufacturers must be able to meet this high demand without sacrificing the quality of their products. Every product must be prepared and packaged efficiently and uniformly to avoid shortages and time-consuming recalls. Using automation not only reduces the risk of human error but speeds up production significantly. 

Enjoy a Better Allocation of Labor 

End-of-line automation will help businesses streamline labor by allocating staff to more focused and productive tasks. This way, employees can be used for duties that require the human touch. The automated machinery can instead pack each case and weigh and label each item. This also reduces the chance of employees developing injuries that result from repetitive motions. 

Improved Production Time

Manufacturers can significantly increase production speed and efficiency by implementing the proper automation solution for their lines. When selecting your best checkweighers, labeling machines, and more, from AP Dataweigh, Inc., you can work with our team to determine the best way to implement end-of-line machines into your existing production line. The use of automation can ensure that your products are more consistent and packaged and labeled correctly every time. 

What End-of-Line Systems Can Be Automated? 

Scanning the Package

Checking for foreign materials like metal or glass is crucial for end-of-line operations. This can be done manually, but X-ray equipment and metal detectors are increasingly the best way to identify abnormalities and automatically reject inferior items. 

Weighing the Package

Checking packaging weight is crucial for production efficiency, security, and compliance. AP Dataweigh, Inc. checkweighers can accurately and swiftly measure the weights of each product and determine if they fit the preset weight. Our checkweighers work well with single or double conveyor belt systems without losing accuracy. 

Labeling the Package

Automated labeling machines ensure that every product label contains accurate information for each item, including its exact weight. The automated machinery can swiftly apply each label in the same spot on each package to ensure consistency.
