How to Know a Packaging Line Assessment is Right for You

We understand that it can be difficult to produce more packages at a faster rate while adhering to cost constraints and sustainability requirements. It can be even more difficult when production downtime occurs or material issues arise. Fortunately, a packaging line assessment can help alleviate worries and avoid potential problems. Find out what an assessment entails to consider if one right for you.

What a Line Assessment Entails

During a line assessment, a Bostik expert will visit your plant and work with you to understand your current and desired state production line needs. In particular, the expert will assess existing processes, including your:

  • Equipment settings (temperature, line speed, etc.)
  • Adhesive coat weight
  • Fiber tear rate

Once the expert has a clear idea of your current processes, our team will identify recommended optimizations for your production line. These can include:

  • Adjusting the equipment settings
  • Recommending a different adhesive
  • Advising on proper maintenance and operational procedures

Additionally, our team will start benchmarking your data, so you can see how your production line improves overtime as adjustments are made.
