The Unified Flex certified Service Team consists of qualified machinists, PLC specialists and packaging specialists who have vast experience installing packaging equipment. From pre-delivery to operation, Unified Flex will be there through every step of the process to ensure your solution is performing at its optimal level.
Pre-Delivery Acceptance Test and Training
Unified Flex provides a pre-delivery acceptance test to the customer. Equipment must be run with customer supplied product and specific packaging film. This allows us to identify any unforeseen issues and resolve them prior to shipping. Any upgrades to the equipment are much easier to perform prior to shipping, ensuring a smooth runoff on the production floor.
Production Test & Troubleshooting
Due to a limited supply of product at our facility, certain issues cannot be addressed until the product starts to flow from the manufacturing process to the packaging system. Certain attributes of a product such as temperature, moisture level, volume, shape, and dust can present unforeseen challenges and affect the flow of the equipment through the packaging system. Often, minor modifications and change of settings can rectify such obstacles quickly. Production testing and troubleshooting are extremely important to perform to smooth out any unforeseen kinks and enables the technician to fine tune the machine to match customers packaging material and product.
