At Landaal Packaging Systems, re-investing in the business has proven to be a very successful business model. The list of upgrades and additional equipment purchases that the company has made in the past few years is very impressive.
The latest addition in their quest to be the outright leader in corrugated and packaging related products/services is a very versatile piece of automation. Meet “Baxter” the industrial robot. Baxter is a fully programmable unit that interacts closely with his human counterparts to improve efficiencies in a wide variety of production environments.
“When we actually saw Baxter and witnessed the ease in which he ‘learns’ about the specific task that he is responsible for, it was a natural fit,” notes Matt Landaal, the Operations Manager at Landaal Packaging Systems’ contract packaging division.
Landaal Packaging Systems has a long history of offering quality packaging services to their customer base. The addition of Baxter, allows them to increase throughput on several key manufacturing lines.
“The ultimate goal is always and will always be to improve the service to our clients,” adds Robert Landaal, the Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Baxter allows us to reduce lead times and maintain consistent quality throughout the packaging/manufacturing process.”
In addition to Baxter, Landaal Packaging Systems has invested in several pieces of large format printing and cutting equipment for the growth of their large format graphic carton and display business. The growth is largely attributed to the company’s commitment to reinvesting back in the business.
