Designing efficient Packing Benches
Designing a packing bench. Which suits your specific requirements will bring real productivity savings.
While most packaging benches are similar in function. Every packaging bench has its own set of issues. Sometimes within the same companies packing and despatch departments. The workstations vary because of the scope of the functions required for that particular process.
Packing benches are sometimes the answer. However it is a common error to purchase a standard packing bench, based solely around the storage and minimum costs. Maximized efficiency comes from integration of the pack bench into the company’s IT order fulfilment and material handling system.
Looking at order fulfilment. From the point of view of the packaging function. Creates additional efficiency and productivity by reducing extra movements. Eliminating duplicated workloads, and handling the product fewer times. By incorporating all aspects not only improves productivity. It also improves package quality and most importantly will save money.

This can then be laid out into a ergonomic working model. “A well designed workspace will eliminate additional handling. Improve quality and improve productivity. Along with having provision for IT equipment.”
Generally the most efficient packing is a straight line packing flow, where the operator does not need to move or carry large objects. This often is coupled with some materials handling equipment.
Materials handling integration
The introduction of some materials handling aids. Could serve to bring products to the packer and take finished parts away. Leaving the packer to pack products efficiently. The addition of materials handling, often is also an aid to reduce manual handling injuries.
Packing materials and equipment
Storage of packing materials and equipment should also be taken into account. To ensure the workstation is is fully stocked for the workload of the packer
IT Equipment and ancillary items
Often when purchasing packing table. A standard packing station or table is purchased on a cost basis. It is only when all them items you require are put into place. Are the inefficiencies highlighted. When half of the usable working space is taken up by equipment. Before you even start packing.
