Configuring an Efficient Packing Station.

Designing a packing station to suit you specific operation, workflow, and processes brings real productivity savings.

While most packaging tables are similar in function. Every packaging station is unique to its own set of issues. Sometime even within the same companies packing and despatch departments, the workstations vary because of the scope of the functions required.

Suggestions to get the best design.

1) Write a description of what function you need each packing station or workbench to perform.
2) Write a list of packaging you require to use.
3) Write a list of features you require from your packing station.
4) Write a list of the IT equipment etc you require for each station.
5) Determine a workflow pattern for the packing table.
6) How are you going to get products on and off the packing station? (materials handling conveyors)
7) Create a plan for integrating the packaging workstation and the material handling to give best workflow. With minimum product movement.
8) Speak to our sales team. Who can help you design, manufacture and install the packing stations and materials handling equipment to suit your business

It is a common error to purchase a standard packing station or focus the packing workstation design solely around the storage of supplies. Maximized efficiency comes from integration of the pack station into the company’s IT order fulfillment and material handling system.

Looking at the order fulfilment plan. From the point of view of the packaging function, creates additional efficiency and productivity by reducing extra movements, eliminating duplicated workloads. And then reducing handling of the product fewer times. By incorporating all aspects not only improves productivity it also improves package quality.

Packing station operational overview

Many packing benches and workstations have different needs. Each workbench usage is as unique as your company.  From packing, part collation and packing, carton addressing, quality control or team leader. Each function requires different layouts, equipment and IT needs.  so In the first place a good design is vital to get your process right.

Workbench workflow

Defining the operational workflow with give you an idea of the areas of concern. So consideration can be made for all the functions required. This can then be laid out into a ergonomic working model. “A well designed workspace will eliminate additional handling, improve quality and improve productivity. Not to mention 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. Likewise this is often 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 is often 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 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 in reality most of the usable working space is taken up by equipment before you even start packing.  With this in mind, we suggest that preparation is vital before you commit.  Look at your options.

Summary on packing station design

The final design of your packing station usually ends up with compromises that make you choose between a series of options. Spaceguard can work with you to develop a bespoke solution for you which suits your business.
