Cost-effective, optimised packaging machinery
Investment in machinery and the RoI throughout the entire course of its service-life is very important. PGS Machinery offers service and training contracts to protect the investment through the machine’s lifecycle.
SMART factory and digital production ensures machines communicate with each other and results in optimised production resources. NFC Tagz™ and RFID technologies (patented) will grow in production systems to ensure inventory is available and easily located. Industry 4 is coming, which involves the customer, the product and machinery, and will assist in future internet sales.
The total cost of ownership (TCO) of machinery includes capital to purchase and subsequent machine disposal, utilities to run machines, and material costs, including personnel and maintenance.
PGS Machinery is well-versed in TCO and helps customers understand this during the point of sale.
Optimising efficiency of packaging machines
Our plan is that only one operator will be needed to run several machines. We offer our patented ControlSmart™ system that verifies customer specific control aspects on the machinery and our PLUM™ (Packaging Line Under Management) approach allows 24/7 control over the operator and machines.
Today, many discussions revolve around operating line efficiency (OLE). We look at an eight-hour single-shift operation, no weekends, meaning 2,080 available production hours per annum. We do everything to provide full production for these hours.
If we can maintain full production speed, the customer has an opportunity to produce more products every minute of the year. For example, we often find potential customers who are operating at 60% to 70% OLE, which means they only make profits on this OLE figure losing money on the leftover percentage.

Our aim has been to stop all landfill, ensuring the correct after-life use of all packaging materials, including incineration and the recovery of energy, metals and slag without harming the atmosphere.
