Objective

Most recently, Charlie worked with a large packaging company to devise a solution for streamlining material flow in and out of a shrink-wrapping station. This innovative setup will enhance operational efficiency and minimize downtime, ultimately improving shrink wrapping operations.

Solution

The solution includes Accumulation Conveyors, Custom Pushers, True-Tapered Roller Curves, and Gravity Conveyors.

  • Accumulation Conveyors use sensors to control product flow, pausing or slowing down as needed to prevent jams and maintain a steady pace, ensuring uninterrupted processing. This ensures the proper timing for one skid at a time to enter the shrink-wrapper.
  • Custom Pushers move the product to the proper place on the conveyor and correct the orientation of the product as needed. They can also be activated by sensors to push product to different lanes, based on various input data.
  • True-Tapered Roller Curves give smooth transportation from one lane to the next and keep the product oriented properly.
  • Gravity Conveyors facilitate efficient off-loading from the shrink-wrapper by utilizing the natural force of gravity to smoothly transport shrink-wrapped products downward, minimizing manual handling.

Results

Charlie’s cutting-edge solution streamlined material flow in and out of the shrink-wrapping station, significantly enhancing operational efficiency and minimizing downtime. This innovation promises to dramatically improve shrink-wrapping operations, setting a new industry standard for our client.
