Purchasing packaging machinery is typically justified in two ways:
  1. One is by Increasing the Efficiency of the line (ie: having more packages produced per hour).

  2. The other is in Labor Savings (ie: producing the same (or more) packages, but with less people).
Most of the time a combination of these two are used to figure payback periods on purchasing a new machine. This calculator figures the potential increase in efficiency you can achieve (in bags per minute - bpm).

Note: If you do not know your bags per minute, please click here to use our Bags Per Minute Calculator.

Your Existing Process

Please enter the current speed of the line you are running (either in bags/min, bags/hr, or bags/shift):
  Only Enter One
1)In Bags Per Minutebpm
 Note: This should be the number of bags you are currently capable of producing with your existing machinery
 or, enter:
2)In Bags Per Hourbph
 or, enter:
3)Total Outputbags per shift
 Note: This can be the Filler only or Sealer only or Entire line, but remember to use the number that pertains to what you are analyzing throughout the entire calculator

The New Process

Please enter the new speed you are expecting to achieve (either in bags/min, bags/hr, or bags/shift):
  Only Enter One
1)In Bags Per Minutebags per minute
 Note: This should be the new speed you expect to achiever after the new equipment is installed, debugged, and operators are fully trained.
2)In Bags Per Hourbags per hour
3)Total Outputbags per shift

The Results...

Your Increased Efficiency...
1)In Bags Per Minutebags per minute
 Note: This is the amount of extra output that the new equipment is going to give you.
2)In Bags Per Hourbags per hour
3)Total Output-bags per shift-based on an 8 hour day, no breaksbags per shift
4)As a Percentage of Total Output% increased efficiency/new speed
Based on the values above, it is possible to increase the efficiency of you output by %!!
