Case Study #2

CHALLENGE:Eliminate Steel Strap Use while Maintaining Load Integrity

SOLUTION:This customer came to Neff Packaging with the idea they wanted to totally eliminate steel strapping. Steel strapping was expensive, caused workman's compensation claims and was blowing out forklift tires at an alarming rate. Neff Packaging and the customer worked closely together to come up with the optimal solution.

Upgraded to battery operated combination polyester strapping tools.
Neff Packaging supplied the service program to support those tools in such harsh operating conditions.
The switch to polyester strapping has saved the customer ten's of thousands of dollars over the last five years.

Neff continues to help customers realize the added safety, productivity and performance gains in converting from steel to polyester strap.

CHALLENGE:Increase Throughput in Ring Bending Division

SOLUTION: The customer was using pre–cut 1 ¼" x .029 Steel Strap and two piece tooling to secure their loads. The excess time it took to pre-thread the seals, manually tension and seal the banding was leaving the machine idle for around 50% of the time. Neff Packaging and the customer worked closely together to come up with the optimal solution.

Added floor dispensers to eliminate precutting.
Upgraded to Signode pneumatic PNSC 34 steel combination tools. This drastically cut down packaging time along with improving worker ergonomics.
Downsized the strapping to ¾" x .025. This saved the customer almost 30% in annual strap and seal costs.
To summarize, the customer was able to drastically lower idle time and greatly improve throughput for this division. Along with these impressive gains, the customer cut 30% out of annual strap and seal costs!

What does safety mean to you?

Minimize Accidents
Meet new safety requirements and keep production moving.
Wulftec® offers custom safety packages. Install these safety features on new or existing equipment, on any brand, for both semi-automatic and fully automatic machines. 

Light Curtains uses an invisible beam system to deter people from entering the process area while the muting system allows loads to safely enter and exit the wrap zone.
Electric Dump Valve purges the pneumatic system when an E-stop is pressed, the process area is breached or the machine power is disconnected.
Fencing with safety yellow support posts and black wire mesh keeps personnel from entering the wrap zone.
