Paper Plate Handling for Manufacturing

The U.S. paper plate industry is projected to increase over the next five years as consumer demand continues to rise despite coming under scrutiny by environmentalist groups. Although this category is expected to grow, the industry is experiencing increased import competition from emerging countries with less aggressive environmental regulations and technological advancements in the manufacturing process. These challenges are driving paper plate manufacturers to find new ways to reduce product damage, enhance productivity and increase efficiencies. Efficiencies that can help maximize the use of labor and resources.

One of the easiest and most effective ways to increase the efficiencies of the manufacturing process is through the use of automated manufacturing systems. These advancements can help dramatically increase productivity by automating the manufacturing process, either in part or in whole. There are four main areas of application where this automated technology can be adapted...
