5 Ways A FiFo Accumulator Will Improve Your Packing Line

When it comes to improving your packaging line, you are sure to be looking for anything that will make the entire process that bit little easier and more efficient. After all, who doesn’t want to keep things as easy as possible?

Whether you’re looking to speed things up or you need help with keeping packages organised, there’s always a solution. One of the top solutions here at Packserve is a First in, First out (FiFo) accumulator. There are a number of benefits that come with adding an accumulator to your packaging line, which is why we recommend them to so many of our customers.

The Benefits of an Accumulator for a Packaging Line

If there’s one thing we know about at Packserve, it’s the importance of a fully functioning packaging line. That is why we’re always looking for new ways to improve packing lines for our clients, without compromising on the accuracy of the packaging process.

Often, an accumulator is the answer to our client’s problems. Here are five ways an accumulator will improve your packing line:

  • Reducing Machine Stops and Waits – An accumulator is one of the best ways to reduce the number of times a machine needs to stop and wait. Rather than having to pause to combat the buildup of packages at the end of a packing line, an accumulator ensures everything can keep moving smoothly.
  • Reduces Business Downtime – Downtime can be a huge problem for businesses, especially in industries where time is money and there’s a lot to get done. An accumulator can improve a packing line by reducing downtime, ensuring packing can take place constantly and consistently.
  • An Accumulator Ensures Packages Remain Undamaged Whilst Queuing – Packages can become damaged when they queue at the end of a packing line, which can cause problems and unexpected costs. However, with our accumulators, this isn’t an issue. An accumulator ensures packages remain safe and secure at all times by using a pressureless system whereby products don’tcome into contact with each other during accumulation.
  • Keeping Packages Organised – It isn’t always easy to keep packages organised at the end of a packing line, especially when things start to build up; this is where a FiFoaccumulator comes in. By keeping everything queued and in the correct place, a FiFoaccumulator cuts down on the amount of time that’s spent re-sorting packages.
  • Can Be Adjusted to Different Stack Heights – As accumulators can be adjusted to fit a range of packages and stack heights, accumulating product vertically to give a smaller footprint, they make for a great investment.
