Packing and Sealing
There are dozens of methods for packaging and sealing a carton prior to shipment. Cartons with loose items often require dunnage – crumpled paper, disposable peanuts, sealed air bags, etc., to protect the items during shipment. Alternatively, special machines can provide void-free space reducing the amount of dunnage required. The design of packaging workstations require careful planning to maximize ergonomic benefits while ensuring employee safety and mobility. Packages are typically sealed with adhesive glue melt or tape. Based upon throughput requirements, ranging from a few cartons a minute to over a hundred cartons a minute, McCombs Wall will carefully select the appropriate manual or fully automated sealing technologies to create the best overall value to help reduce your total cost of shipping.
