Meat Processing

Customer: Meat Packer

Customer Need:

Due to changes in cattle supply and size variations created by recent drought conditions, they were experiencing challenges with its box forming and sealing, which resulted in far too many open packages and generated unwanted corrugated waste.

Applied Adhesives Approach:

Applied's experts used their extensive industry and equipment knowledge to develop an improved and robust product that could overcome size variations and “overpack” issues. Along with its manufacturing partners, Applied's innovative technical team recognized that the industry wide equipment required an adhesive that had a unique combination of long range and open time. It also needed to have a fast set speed and high tack to overcome the high memory and coated corrugated stock used in the customer's package design.

Results:

Applied provided a solution that reduced usage by more than 20 percent and lowered the customer's Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) dramatically. Box waste also was reduced by nearly 10 percent due to a more robust product. Applied's adhesive solution also improved machining and enhanced metal removability, resulting in reduced jams often common with this equipment/package due to adhesive build up. The overall result was improved efficiencies and savings.
