Packaging Cost, Material Usage and Capital Equipment ROI Calculator
Arpac Calc is used to calculate the amount of packaging material required to package a product and to compare secondary packaging design solutions. This calculator accomodates different methods of packaging (case, tray, bundle, pallet, etc.) and can compare the amount of packaging material used by each type.
In addition to material usage, cost parameters provide a financial tool to analyze the package design and/or compare multiple package options to find an optimal solution.
Finally, use these calculations (plus labor costs) to estimate a Capital Equipment Budget based on a desired ROI.
