TR-50 Trayformer - Wayne Automation

Today’s baking industry offers an enormous variety of crowd-pleasing desserts. From killer brownies to nostalgia-inducing cinnamon rolls, customers can pick from any number of types of sweet and savory delights. Whatever your shop’s specialty is, improving the efficiency of your packaging by using a tray former machine can help increase your output and decrease costs to ensure your unique product gets delivered quickly to a market hungry for what you sell.

The TR-50 is perfect for rapidly producing bakeable cardboard trays or corrugated baking trays suitable for bakeries, pâtisseries, or confectionery shops. With our automated solution, you can continue supplying delicious baked goods using an environmentally friendly baking tray.

Reduce Packaging Waste Material

Automated packaging machines deliver more uniformity than manual packaging systems. When you automate your production with bakeable cardboard trays, you minimize the potential for human error. You will save more money by having less waste from damaged or misused packaging material. Additionally, with consistent packaging from reliable equipment, you can reduce the number of items broken at later stages in distribution.

Increase End of Line Production Speed

One main benefit of automation is reducing labor requirements on the packing line. Manual packaging incurs more expenses and shipping delays because more people have to touch the product. By transitioning to automated corrugated tray former, you can reduce the time the product is on the packaging line. This means it gets into the hands of your customers faster, which means you get paid faster!

You Can (and Should) Automate Your Packaging

You don’t have to be a large, international conglomerate to profit from automation. Many smaller bakeries are benefiting from tray former machines, too. While an industrial packing solution does require some up front investment, that investment will quickly pay for itself through increased productivity and improved waste management. Plus, once you incorporate automation on the packaging line, you no longer have to allocate workers to the packaging process. This allows you to invest labor into other areas, such as preparing finished items for shipping.

Automate with the Right Partner

Wayne Automation is expanding our reach by partnering with a wide range of bakeries and food production companies. Our goal is to provide you with reliable automation that steadily reduces production costs, and maintains an overall sustainable system.

We want you to succeed in all aspects of your baking business by helping you quickly and efficiently organize your goods for distribution. Still, while automation contains many benefits, there are a few things you should consider before you dive right in. So here is a short checklist of things to consider before you go fully automated.

5 Other Things to Consider When Automating

As mentioned, automating your corrugated baking trays requires making an investment into a new way of doing things. However, this is becoming more necessary if you intend to scale in a demanding market. When researching your options for a tray former machine, there is more than just machinery to include in your evaluations. Here are the top five factor to consider:

  1. Speed – As you transition into automated packaging, you must consider how quickly you can alter your packaging line to a new form factor. Let’s say you want to package something special for the holidays, and you need to make a quick change. We can help with that. All our products feature tool-free adjustment. We even provide the option for fully automatic changeover between different preset products.

  2. Simplicity – The last thing you need is for your automated system to be awkward and difficult to control. Our erectors, inserters, sealers, and tray formers are controlled by Allen Bradley microelectronics. These include automatic cutoff switches and a high-definition touchscreen input where all the controls are consolidated. This makes it easy for operators to keep your products moving smoothly down the line.

  3. Safety – We have considered the safety of your personnel at every step of our designs. Our machines feature rotary brakes to completely lock the system during maintenance. Also, regular maintenance tasks are displayed through the Total Planned Maintenance (TPM) option on the touchscreen as an available upgrade.

  4. Supplies – When you factor in ALL of the printing and packaging costs (seals, labels, cases, case boxes, etc.), it is possible that the material to store and ship your product can exceed the cost of making the goodies. You will want a reliable system to calculate the supplies to efficiently package and distribute your products.

  5. Space – When you integrate automation, you are initiating the power to do more. Naturally, there will be an initial need to allocate physical space to integrate your tray former machine. However, you should immediately consider the follow-up phases for when your operations scale. From the start, it’s helpful to envision how you will handle the additional physical requirements to package your products once your increased sales demand a larger inventory.
