Many printing and packaging companies around the world are experiencing the many benefits of owning a Woodward jogger aerator. One of the many ways a jogger aerator can positively affect your company is by increasing efficiency and productivity.
If you are in the printing and packaging industry, and don’t own one of our machines, there is a good chance you have one or two employees manipulating your piles of material by hand. Whether your employees are trying to flip over the entire load by 180 degrees, separate sheets to reduce static cling, or neatly stack your material for the next step of the manufacturing process, this can be a very time- consuming task.
After speaking with plant managers all over the world, it seems like the average amount of time it would take to re-work a pile of material by hand is anywhere between 20 and 40 minutes. Not only does this take up a lot of time, but it can also take a toll on the employees’ bodies. Using a Woodward jogger aerator would allow 1 employee to flip over material, reduce static cling, and neatly stack the material, all in under 5 minutes.
In addition to saving time by utilizing a Woodward jogger aerator, you will also notice increased productivity after the jogging and aerating cycle is complete. We have noticed in the field that printers, sheeters, die-cutters, and other similar machines do not operate at their full potential unless a jogger aerator is introduced prior. If the material being fed into one of these machines isn’t perfectly aligned with a smooth gripper edge, there is a very high chance your plant will not be running at its peak capabilities. A well jogged and aerated load will also reduce or eliminate material jams, which completely shut down your operation.
