TekniPlex flow wrap structure eliminates $250K in manufacturing costs


A manufacturer of diagnostic products was having difficulty with the flexible material it was using to flow wrap its assay cartridges. The company required a barrier structure that would protect the filled cartridges from both moisture and UV light. However, it was experiencing an ongoing problem with residue “gumming” up the flow wrap cutting blades, causing significant downtime, material waste and labor costs.

Get more details on how these issues were eliminated:

  • Approximately $150K in wasted material annually 100 plus hours annually of downtime
  • $30 to $35K in annual labor costs to address the problem
  • $250K direct manufacturing costs
  • $100K in lost product output annually
