Pucks Provide Stability, Speed, Safety, and Savings

 

A puck is an injection molded carrier which stabilizes products on a conveyor line during the labeling, capping, filling, assembling, and date coding processes. Many of today’s consumer products use unstable or irregularly shaped package designs that can pose several different packaging challenges.

Using a well-designed puck, companies can stabilize products to maximize the efficiency of your conveyor line. Product stability means increased line speeds, less downtime, reduced waste, and less line clean up.

By reducing machinery changeover and setup times, companies can plan and put into production small and medium batch sizes very quickly.

No matter the shape or design of product packaging, Advantage Puck’s wide variety of pucks can improve the efficiency of company operations, protect high-end product finish and label, and even reduce factory production noise. Capital equipment cost can also be reduced by standardizing timing screws for fillers, cappers, and labelers.

For every type of product, Advantage Puck can provide a puck which ensures your packaging moves smoothly through production lines.
