Four keys to efficient food wrapping
The biggest issues facing those involved in food packaging operations are the transition and movement of product with controlled orientation and integration.

candy bars. These items are produced via various methods tailored to that particular
product. Sometimes that means a cooking and/or freezing process. Most often the product is
traveling down the conveyor to the packaging operations in a random pattern in various
Providing these processes with the necessary “assist” to keep all its parts moving in sync for
better efficiency can be improved if one knows the key ingredients to production and packaging
efficiency for these products. Understanding and utilizing these tricks of the trade can greatly
enhance a production line and often dramatically increase efficiency. Keep in mind that many of
these intertwine and are essential to proper integration of a system.
