Horizontal thermoform fill and seal: Calculating the real costs

If you’ve been seeking to enhance your existing automated operations and have previously rejected converting to horizontal thermoform fill and seal (HTFS) machinery, it just might be time to rethink that decision. White paper from Ossid explains why.
Compared to other styles of packaging machines, the immediate benefits of HTFS machinery—more output plus less time and decreased manpower—are obvious. The long-term gain of decreased per-package costs (encompassing material and production-cost savings) also are appreciable.

Specifically, HTFS is faster than horizontal flow wrap and more versatile than vertical-packaging machinery. And, while each application possesses its own specifics, in general there is a packaging-cost savings ranging from 30%-70% when switching to HTFS.

Even better, servo-driven HTFS machines edge out their pneumatic counterparts. When a machine’s primary functions are pneumatically driven, the compressed-air requirement is high, ranging from 20 cubic feet per minute for a small machine to 80 cubic feet per minute for a larger, higher-speed one. Servo-driven versions, however, typically consume 80% less compressed air per cycle.

Yet some company leaders still believe the technology is out of reach price-wise—until they weigh the true costs of doing business as-is.
