How automation solutions reduce manual labour cost, increase efficiency and improve profitability

Supplier News

Impact Automation Solutions  explains how automation of produce processing and packing lines can increase efficiency and profitability in any operation.
 
Manual labour is not cheap in Australia and is only expected to cost more, according to the Reserve Bank of Australia, the Australian Bureau of Statistics and individual industry researchers. The ABS has reported an increase in wages of 3.7% in the last 12 months while BIS Shrapnel has predicted a further wage increase in 2013/14, which is tipped to peak at 5.5% in 2014/15 due to a number of factors including acceleration in profits, low unemployment rate and a high Australian dollar.
 
Given the rising cost of manual labour in Australia coupled with an increase in consumer demand, automation is a viable solution especially for fruit and vegetable processors and packers to reduce operational costs, increase efficiency and boost profitability.
 
By substituting slow, costly and unreliable manual labour with machinery and equipment that streamline processes, companies can increase efficiency and productivity across different applications such as weighing, sorting, bagging, punneting, case packing and palletising.

Impact Automation offers solutions for partial or complete automation of manufacturing, processing and packaging lines. The company can customise unique automation solutions including sourcing high quality equipment and machinery from industry-leading suppliers to suit specific operational requirements and help the client meet both short and long term goals.
