Packing Integration

Many retailers are citing that speed of packing is their main constraint at peak times. Integration helps you to remove the waste of your scarcest resource – time.

Our Protega team have over 25 years experience helping companies across multiple industries, to speed up work flow and design integrated solutions. This can improve operator working comfort as well as increase productivity.

Hexcel Integrated Packing Bench

Housed under the bench, the Hexcel paper is simply passed through a pair of rollers and dispensed onto the bench at the optimal position for the packers.  

This design maximises the usable area of the bench, and dramatically increases efficiency.  To reload a section of the bench lifts up and allows rolls to be placed easily and ergonomically.

Consultation & Design

We carry out an initial survey to gain an operational overview of your organisation. We look at workflow, materials handling and packing requirements and configure an efficient and safe work area.

CAD designs show what the finished project could look like, and, subject to input from all project stakeholders and agreement on the final design, a fixed cost will be given.


We manufacture bespoke equipment to meet the needs of your packing environment.

This can include bespoke packaging benches, conveyor systems and storage systems and, if relevant, all in combination with the Protega paper machines and other equipment.
