quadruple ways
I think it means the performance of the machine has the ability of processing 6000 pieces in quadruple ways per hour.

quad packs

Possibly what is meant here.

Among other things, in packaging logistics a 'Nutzen' is a packaging unit (such as a reel, roll, blister pack, etc.).

My initial thought was 'four-up', which is a printer's term for a sheet of paper (or other printable material) that is printed with four copies of the same item or four pages of a document (common commercial printing practice). However, from your context what is being printed is screws (screw labelling), so my interpretation is that the screws are printed four at a time. *Perhaps* a printer would also call this situation 'four-up'.
IMO the translation 'panel' for Nutzen, as can be found in several Kudoz glossary entries, only applies to the production of printed circuit boards.

If the screws are simply fed through the labeling machine four at a time (which you may be able to determine from your context), 'pack' is naturally not a valid translation. The safest translation in this situation might then be simply 'four at at time' (following the rule that when you aren't sure, it's better to be approximately right than precisely wrong).

Notes to answerer
Asker: Es handelt sich hier um Drucktechnik, nicht Verpackungen. Wäre quadruple panel auch eine Möglichkeit?

Asker: Vielen Dank Ken für Ihre Mühe. Die Antwort des Kollegen scheint in diesem Falle aber etwas unproblematischer zu sein. Daher muss ich ihm die Punkte geben. Nochmals danke sehr! Sabine

Asker: Hi Ken, Ihre letzte Antwort erhielt ich leider erst, nachdem ich den Fall schon geschlossen hatte. Ich war unter großem zeitlichen Druck. Das scheint mir eine gute Lösung zu sein. Sabine

agree  Rebecca Garber: w/ Klaus. I don't know why the asker felt the need to close this so early.

  -> probably just the desire to have an answer and get on with the job...

agree  MMUlr: yes, it means, 4 *pages* or copies per sheet of paper (normally, when it's about paper .... ) --> e.g. http://www.michaelsharris.com/10parts/text/averyz.htm (find: copies per sheet)
