  • When is it time to get a packaging machine

    Hi Guys,

    As the title states, at what volume per week do you think it is worth to get a packaging machine for your coffee roasting company?

    Thanks

    i have no idea. But I would assume that its a turnover and cost/benefit calculation, not just a straight volume question.

    who is doing the packing at the moment? what is their hourly wage costing? how much time will you save and how much more will you be able to pack with a machine? what does a packaging machine cost? will it be cheaper per hour than a human?

    I appreciate you may have already thought of this though ... But like I say I dont think its a simple "when you are doing X number of kilos you need a packaging machine" type of question.

      Agree. Need to consider how many hours are currently being spent packaging and if that time can be spent more productively. Though someone would still need to supervise the operation of the machine.

      I think they start at about $13k. Ill be packaging manually for some time to come.

        We recently purchased a weigh fill with loader, cost 19k. What used to take 8 hours now takes 1-1.5 including maintanance. Not only that but it opens doors for a variety of packaging sizes with no extra hassle
