Packing Station Benefits
A well-designed packing station will ensure there is a place for everything and everything in its place. Modular and ergonomic packing stations can increase productivity by eliminating the need for workers to bend, reach, or leave the packing area to retrieve supplies.
Packing stations can be outfitted with a variety of accessories such as roll storage stands that hold wrapping paper, bubble wrap, or foam. Overhead toolbars can provide a place for scanners, task lights, and other tools to be within reach. Adding carton flow tracks like SpanTrack lane or SpanTrack wheel bed will provide a place to store orders that are ready to be packaged.
Connecting your packing and shipping areas with a simple gravity conveyor system can reduce bottlenecks and eliminate worker travel time. Thus creating a seamless integration between order picking, packaging, and the loading dock.
Build a Packing Station with UNEX
UNEX designs engineered-to-order packing stations to meet the needs of even the most demanding operations. Our versatile and durable, modular workstation solution, FlowCell, can be configured to suit your specific packaging needs. UNEX packing stations can be flexibly designed as needed, bringing efficiency and productivity to the packing operation.
UNEX packing stations offer room for boxes, filling, and packaging materials, along with sealing, labeling, and manifesting systems. Restocking of supplies can take place from the back so that packers can continue to work in the front.
Galvanized steel workbenches are available in 12″ or 18″ deep. Tools, lighting, and other accessories can be attached to the packing station with an overhead toolbar. To make your packing station mobile, 4″ casters can be added (rigid or swivel) for extra maneuverability.
