Often referred to as “Personal Care Products,” HBC products cover a wide range of products found in health and beauty departments in drug stores, supermarkets, and department stores.
CPG companies have evolved HBC packaging with the goal of having their products stand out to consumers, rather than a standardized look-alike packaging. Lately, even functionality has become essential in brand identification, as well as the choice of materials for environmental purposes. These advances in design, either for look, or functionality, have brought forward operational challenges often overlooked throughout the design process.
Opportunities include the assembly of sub-components of non-standardized designs and new materials requiring special handling.
The opportunity to meet operational objectives is part of Orientech’s expertise, providing added value services by assembling multi-part components that require particular in-line production needs.
Orientech has helped companies grow revenue by providing them with custom solutions. The solutions include component feeding equipment, part orientation systems, multi-part component assembly lines, visual inspection cells, and the labeling, stacking and packing of components and final products. By understanding the overall “VSM” (Value Stream Mapping), these solutions brought improvements to different areas of their process. Efficiencies in run-rates, improved quality, and often lowered shipping costs, by stacking and packing, are a few examples of where operations are improved, or new packaging may run at an accustomed rate, with our automated and semi-automated solutions. Here are some of our successful realizations: deodorant assembly machine, jar assembly machine, pump placer, wipes lid assembly, flip top cap closing machine, disc top cap assembly.
We take the time to understand your realities and put solutions in place to maximize every step of your product’s assembly process.
