Pet Food

Opportunity
A pet food manufacturer was looking for packaging cost reduction opportunities. Packaging is plastic bags weighing 16 lbs. Bags have the highest COF to be obtained for the outer ply (spec is 0.5 min). The manufacturer was only able to get 5 layers per pallet and can not double stack skids. They wanted to palletize 11 tiers per skid.

Solution
CGP Expal Inc. supplied the anti-slip sheets STABULONTM 110. As very flexible sheets that take on the exact shape of the bags, STABULONTM 110 sheets increased interlocking between bags and stopped  them from sliding.

Results
The pet food manufacturer not only achieved its goal of getting to 11 layers a skid, they also were able to make savings on stretch wrap.
