MARCO offer innovative pack house and factory floor solutions that provide control from the arrival of the raw material to dispatch of the packed product. Increased productivity and profitability are central to the MARCO product delivery with a full return on investment typically achieved within twelve months from installation. MARCO’s engineers design, build, install and support all MARCO’s hardware and software applications, ensuring these are truly fit-for-purpose and easily integrated with existing factory operations and higher-level business systems.
These systems are based on the MARCO Trac-IT suite of products, which, via weighing-centric controls, are designed to maximise productivity, virtually eradicate overpack, monitor and accurately score operator performance, identify unaccountable losses and ensure pack consistency. These deliverables provide a clear and tangible ROI. The data generated from MARCO’s systems also provide real time reporting, allowing management to make informed decisions about all aspects of their packing operations, leading to sustained and measurable increases in profitability.
We have already seen improvements in both pack speed and efficiency; we now run with 2 less people per line and finish 2 hours earlier.
Line speeds have now increased significantly and our giveaway is below 1%. Operator training requirements have also reduced significantly.
The multi-station system is already bringing significant improvements to the grape packing line, reducing overpack, improving productivity and reducing labour overheads.
We have found that there is greater efficiency throughout the pack house as the MARCO system has effectively allowed us to pack at twice the speed using the same lines.
The MARCO Trac-IT suite of modules improves productivity whilst minimising overpack/giveaway, reducing waste and provides full traceability throughout the whole production process. MARCO’s solutions have resulted in improved yields, reduced waste, and greater profitability for our customers across a range of industries.
Installations range from stand-alone yield control solutions to a packhouse wide MES system – both providing visibility and control within the packing environment, allowing managers to calculate and compare individual operator performance and total productivity.
MARCO’s continuous investment and innovation in internal processes ensure delivery of complete customer satisfaction. In-house capabilities ranging from product design, metal work fabrication through to software development enable MARCO to provide a complete solution that not only meets but exceeds customer expectations.
