Frequently Asked Questions about Right Size Solutions
As experts in Right Size Packaging, we get lots of questions from people who are interested in switching. So, we thought we’d cover the basics here and let you find out for yourself if Right Size Packaging is right for you…
How much does Right Size Packaging cost?
This is our number one question when we have a prospective customer, but the truth is – it’s not an easy one. There is no set answer as it is very dependable on what industry you work in, type of machine required and the way in which you acquire the machine. At Ribble Packaging, we offer various ways of acquiring the machine including (but not limited to) rentals, amortise and connect deals, in addition to purchasing the machines outright.
How many boxes can be produced per minute?
Right-sized boxes per minute will depend on the model of the Panotec machine you opt for. Please see below our latest estimations.
Nextpro – Approx. 10 boxes per minute
Evo – Approx. 4 boxes per minute
Midi – Approx. 4 boxes per minute
How many people are required in the warehouse to manage the system?
All of our Panotec machines can be run by just one operator. For a trainee operator, the process of loading a pallet, feeding the fanfold into the machine and producing a box, can be achieved in just a few minutes!
Depending on your business and if you choose to add on any additional automated extras such as the Scan table, E-Gluer, and Varypack, then more operators could make the process quicker and more efficient.
How much warehouse space will a Right Size Packaging system need?
Business Directors and Production Managers often worry that having a flexible packaging management system will require tonnes of space. But the truth is, you’ll actually save space by not having to store multiple shapes and sizes of packaging materials. Listed below are the approximate space requirements depending on which Panotec model you choose.
Nextpro operating width – 2.5m
Evo operating width – 2.5m
Midi operating width – 1.4m
Each machine will have different a different number of cassettes. These are essentially bays for the pallets to go in. Depending on your business requirements, this will be optimised for maximum production.
Right Size Packaging is perfect for businesses that sell products of all different shapes and sizes. By having customisable boxes on demand, companies can reduce the costs of storing packaging and benefit from having no additional filling material to purchase.
