Sys­tems ap­proach to serv­ing cus­tomer needs

Australasian Timber - - WOODTECH -

SIGNODE AUS­TRALIA & New Zealand man­u­fac­ture load con­tain­ment and pro­tec­tive pack­ag­ing sys­tems that have been en­gi­neered specif­i­cally for a va­ri­ety of cus­tomer ap­pli­ca­tions. They in­clude sys­tems that pro­tect cus­tomer prod­ucts, stream­line their pro­duc­tion and im­prove their prof­its.

Signode prod­ucts and equip­ment are used through­out the world in a broad range of in­dus­tries to se­cure ev­ery­thing from wool bales and tim­ber to steel coils and cor­ru­gated car­tons. What makes Signode unique is its sys­tems ap­proach to serv­ing their cus­tomers’ needs.

Signode works to:

• Pro­vide cus­tomers with the cor­rect pack­ag­ing ma­te­ri­als to se­cure their prod­ucts.

• De­sign and build the spe­cial ap­pli­ca­tion equip­ment to ap­ply these ma­te­ri­als safely, ef­fi­ciently and ef­fec­tively.

• Sup­port all of the prod­uct ap­pli­ca­tions with di­rect sales, tech­ni­cal and en­gi­neer­ing re­sources, op­er­a­tor train­ing, field main­te­nance and re­pair ser­vices. As the lead­ing world­wide man­u­fac­turer and dis­trib­u­tor of pro­tec­tive pack­ag­ing sys­tems and ac­ces­sories, Signode is uniquely po­si­tioned to pro­vide cus­tomers with a sin­gle source for all of their pro­tec­tive pack­ag­ing needs. When com­bined with a na­tional team of ex­pe­ri­enced ser­vice tech­ni­cians, Signode has an un­matched abil­ity to pro­vide cus­tomers with lower “to­tal cost of own­er­ship” so­lu­tions for their pro­tec­tive pack­ag­ing needs.

Aus­tralian Made

Signode is an Aus­tralian man­u­fac­turer of plas­tic (PET) and steel strap­ping prod­ucts. The com­pany has been man­u­fac­tur­ing plas­tic and steel strap in Aus­tralia for over 30 years, spe­cial­is­ing in high­per­for­mance so­lu­tions for a wide range of in­dus­tries. In ad­di­tion the com­pany also pro­vides a range of in­dus­trial pack­ag­ing con­sum­ables, strap­ping hand tools, au­to­mated load con­tain­ment so­lu­tions and tech­ni­cal sup­port in its Signode Au­to­ma­tion team (con­sul­tancy, en­gi­neer­ing and ser­vice). Of par­tic­u­lar im­por­tance to Signode is its rep­u­ta­tion as a spe­cial­ist provider of load con­tain­ment sys­tems. ”The ben­e­fits of buy­ing Aus­tralian-made are some­times not that ob­vi­ous, but our cus­tomers can be as­sured that the Signode prod­ucts they use have been man­u­fac­tured us­ing qual­ity ma­te­ri­als to ex­act­ing stan­dards and are rig­or­ously tested,” says Mr An­drew Dal­li­son, MD Signode Aus­tralia & NZ.

With over 40 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in the tim­ber in­dus­try, Signode prides it­self on an ex­ten­sive cus­tomer port­fo­lio of wood prod­uct in­dus­try lead­ers in both Aus­tralia and New Zealand. “Our close and long­stand­ing re­la­tion­ship with our cus­tomers pro­vides first­hand in­dus­try ex­pe­ri­ence and in­sight, this en­ables us to bet­ter ad­dress the in­dus­trial pack­ag­ing needs of our tim­ber in­dus­try cus­tomers,” says Ge­off Up­ton, Aus­tralian & NZ Sales and Marketing Man­ager at Signode.

“Our ex­pe­ri­ence and close cus­tomer re­la­tion­ships pro­vide a cat­alytic for many of the ex­cit­ing en­gi­neer­ing and R&D projects we have cur­rently run­ning” adds Mr Up­ton. “Of par­tic­u­lar in­ter­est to the tim­ber in­dus­try is our brand new Mo­du­lar De­signed Tim­ber Press which tack­les head on many of the chal­lenges our cus­tomers have ex­pe­ri­enced over the years,” adds Mr Up­ton.

Signode’s in-house En­gi­neer­ing Team is at the heart of this new in­no­va­tion which pro­vides cus­tomers with an al­ter­na­tive to tra­di­tional all-en­com­pass­ing mod­els. “For years we have lis­tened to our cus­tomers tell us that they want a ‘cus­tomised so­lu­tion’, they no longer want to pay for com­po­nents of equip­ment which they don’t need so this gave us the idea of a Mo­du­lar De­sign. The new Signode Mo­du­lar Tim­ber press en­ables Signode to cus­tomise the Tim­ber Press and in­te­grate only the com­po­nents re­quired by the cus­tomer. This en­ables us to pro­vide a more spe­cialised so­lu­tion and pro­vide cus­tomers with a more af­ford­able op­tion.”

The new Signode Mo­du­lar Tim­ber Press pro­vides im­proved pack in­tegrity and re­duced equip­ment down­time. Cus­tomers can ex­pect: • In­no­va­tive mo­du­lar de­sign to max­imise pro­duc­tiv­ity • Mod­els to suit light, medium and heavy duty

ap­pli­ca­tions • In­cludes the lat­est strap­ping head tech­nol­ogy • Eco­nom­i­cal elec­tric platen drive tech­nol­ogy • Hy­draulic platen drive & robotic bat­ten ap­pli­ca­tor

op­tions • Low cost of own­er­ship through re­duced

main­te­nance

In ad­di­tion to the new Mo­du­lar De­sign Tim­ber press, Signode also of­fers a range of au­to­mated tim­ber wrap so­lu­tions for the uni­ti­za­tion and wrap­ping of prod­ucts in­clud­ing tim­ber.
