Your business relies on cardboard. It’s hard to imagine how products would make it in and out without cardboard boxes.
But although cardboard is essential, it takes up a lot of room when you’re done using it, thus taking up space in your facility that could otherwise be put to better use.
Enter the cardboard baler.
These devices allow you compress cardboard into small, manageable bales, giving you less waste to deal with. They’re incredibly useful devices, but like any machinery, you need to exercise precautions when using them. (more…)
Creative Labels, located in Gilroy, CA, has been in the business of producing high-quality labels for more than 35 years. The labels they produce are primarily for prime foods and beverages.
Label making generates a great deal of trim waste consisting of paper and plastic. When the label producing machines operate for what are generally 12 hour-days during busy seasons, considerable waste is produced. Prior to 2004, Creative Labels had to wind up the waste from their machines, stop the presses to remove the rolls and try to stomp down the waste to compact it somewhat before putting it into containers. That made it difficult, costly, and time-consuming to dispose of this waste. However, in 2004 when the KenBay RotoPac compactor became available in the US, Creative Labels installed one because it offered significant uptime on the printing presses, which saved time, labor and money.
