- Product Shelf Life
The life of most products will begin to rapidly decrease once it has come in contact with oxygen. If your container is not properly sealed during production, the end consumer may end up purchasing a spoiled product. Automatic capping will help prolong the shelf life of your product. The cap will consistently be placed onto the bottle and torqued shut which leaves no room for error of an untightened, crooked, or broken cap.
2. Less Shrinkage
No matter the industry, every company strives to minimize their shrinkage. Wasted product results in a decrease of profit and a loss of inventory. If a cap is incorrectly positioned on a container, product can be lost during production, shipping, or on store shelves. Consumers will lose confidence in your company as they believe that the product was contaminated, or once they realize they have received half the amount of product that they purchased due to spillage prior to purchasing. A secure cap will benefit both you and the end consumer.
3. Employee Happiness
Hand capping is the dreaded duty of many production workers. The repetitive motion causes fatigue which can result in an incorrectly placed cap. Employees who complete this task each day are prone to injuries which means your turnover rate for this position will be high. A lower production facility can start off with a small handheld capper or bench top capper to keep employees healthy and happy, and later upgrade to the next level of automation. Automating the capping portion of your production will add ease into your operation.
