If you are completing your goals for 2023 – and many of us are – you may be considering how you will meet ambitious productivity targets, or ensure your group meets safety metrics. Maybe you are concerned about employees and labor.  You’re thinking about how to train and onboard quickly, or how to make the systems you have error-resistant and easy to learn.

The upgrades program at CMD can help.

“A critical factor we consider when we develop equipment upgrades at CMD is how they can help our customers meet objectives,” says Craig Mickelson CMD Upgrades Sales Specialist.  “We reach out to our customers to learn their needs and combine that information with our deep knowledge of converting equipment and processes to develop creative, cost-effective solutions that uniquely support our customers,” says Mickelson.

CMD equipment is known for its longevity – with systems still operational after 30+ years. Customers have access to a variety of upgrades for bag machines, winders, drawtape systems and pouch machines, and persistently develops new equipment and technology upgrades.  A dedicated engineering team focuses on designing and manufacturing the upgrades that will bring the most value, in terms of higher productivity, ease of use enhancements or by bringing older machinery back to life with technology enhancements.
