Case Study: Timber

Timber Packaging Solution required for a large manufacturer of garden products

A very large manufacturer of garden products approached us for a piece of shrink packaging equipment that would offer very high output speeds, shrink wrapping a variety of components, to ensure that customers receive complete self-assembly kits.

When taking into account the criteria to shrink wrap heavy timber products, we needed to carefully consider the strength of the packaging to ensure the products were adequately protected and damage free after being shipped.

side-sealerTimber Packaging Solution

Kempner recommended the use of a high speed side sealer from our selection of packaging machinery to be used with polythene film. Polythene plastic shrink wrap is durable and puncture-resistant, which makes it an ideal material for use in wrapping machinery for timber or other large, bulkly products that could be vulnerable to damage in transport or shipping.

Kempner supplied the side sealing machine together with infeed and outfeed conveyors from our range of packaging machines to allow the timber company to do all of their shrink wrapping in house, significantly cutting down on their packaging costs.

The infeed conveyor is fully integrated with the side sealer whilst the outfeed conveyor has been additionally automated to ensure that packs can be collated on a pallet.
