Felins Tying Solutions

In 1921, Fred E. Lins had the innovative idea to create a simple to use, low cost method of bundling products together using tying materials. Today tying has expanded to include multiple models that specialize in tying for countless applications. Tying is the lowest cost bundling method available on the planet. Along with being the most economical form of bundling, tying has other benefits such as: 

  • Increase in productivity
  • Reduced labor costs
  • Variety of material options including twine, plastic, elastic, biodegradable, food grade, etc
  • Elimination of repetitive motion

Growers and wholesales find major efficiencies with the Felins bundling options. Grading and bunching time is greatly reduced compared to hand rubber banding, hand tying or twit tying, taping, or other forms of securing bunches of bouquets. The operator can gently secure a bunch of vegetables or flowers and add plastic sleeves along with plant food packets.

Tying solutions are great for food packaging. Speed of food processing is essential for freshness, packaging is vital for food safety and security, presentation is essential for consumer appeal and branding. There are many reasons to use the right packaging technology for food. Explore your options: 

  • Fresh fruit or vegetable tying
  • Fresh meat tyers
  • Securing clam shells for fresh herbs, salads, and fruits, etc
  • Shrink wrapping egg packs, frozen pizzas, ice cream and more

Reducing packaging can lessen the time needed to pack items

The future of packaging is a less-is-more approach. Eliminate a tremendous amount of waste by simply using less. Many manufacturers who have adopted lean manufacturing and taken steps to produce less waste have moved to banding and bundling. Reducing packaging can lessen the time needed to pack items and even cut delivery times. It reduces the final weight of packed products meaning less money spent on freight and distribution. If you haven’t considered banding or bundling for your manufacturing applications, check it out!

In many cases simply strapping products together is a more economic method of grouping. Consider the raw material costs of a large cardboard box in comparison with a ten inch strand of twine. For anyone processing products that must be moved in bundles it’s worth a look. Many times this part of processing goods is overlooked because it’s just a non-issue when up next to life’s larger problems. However, savings are savings, and in banding and bundling we’re talking about some of the shortest ROI’s you’ve seen in a while!

There are many types of banding, bundling and strapping. Some of the machines below are special to one type, others can be reconfigured to handle many different types of product. Do a little research here but don’t hesitate to contact our sales department for additional information and models.
