Is a Great Dairy Process Still Great if the Packaging Operation Can’t Deliver?


Dairy products that are great tasting, safe and nutritious are every dairy processor’s goal. And National Dairy Month is proof that dairy processors’ care! But if those products spend too much time in the packaging operation – or even worse, don’t survive the packaging operation — then somebody’s got to pay. What if your packaging operation can’t deliver?

Uptime Is Mission Critical

Packaging operation uptime is only as predictable as the least reliable, highest-maintenance, most fickle machine, unit operation or function on the packaging line. And, if multiple lines are feeding into one operation for instance – say a multi-line palletizing operation – then the complexity of automating and achieving profitable uptime is even more complex.

Obviously, system uptime in a secondary packaging operation is mission critical to a milk, cheese, yogurt, sour cream, buttermilk or cream cheese processors’ business plan. And that’s where we come in.

Many Operations. One Machine.

Once installed a modern, automated, centrally controlled and OEM-neutral secondary packaging system from IPM behaves like a single machine. All the unit operations, machine centers, inter-machine conveyance and component parts are best-fit, right-sized, ideal-range and, operating in unison. To scope. By design.

When packaging system uptime is jeopardized then all of the earlier investment in raw materials, processing, manpower, and product development brainpower is immediately at risk of being wasted. And scrapped. Retailer relationships are compromised. Consumers are disappointed. And a comprehensive sustainability strategy is never quite achieved.

How do you optimize packaging line uptime?
