What we achieved…
After careful assessment of their operation and how it was functioning, we proposed a bespoke wrapping line that was able to accommodate a huge variation in pallet type and build quality.
We came up with a solution for a low-level conveyor line which was capable of being loaded and unloaded by operator-driven pallet trucks. With a large warehouse, the need to minimise transport time of the ‘operator picked’ loads from one location to another was obvious. Having established their requirements, we designed infeed and outfeed conveyors to be capable of accepting varied loads ranging from one standard pallet up to three full pallets simultaneously. The pallets would then proceed down the line individually for wrapping, before being accumulated at the outfeed for unloading in the required quantities.
The operation was then capable of efficiently creating outgoing lines at the despatch bays that were well-wrapped and ready for immediate loading.
