The Challenge

Alexir wanted to continue to provide excellent customer service and identified that investment in their packing operation would make a big difference to the overall system.

 

  • To reduce manual handling of the products
  • To improve throughput
  • To build flexibility into the operation
Our Approach

Conveyor Networks worked in partnership with Alexir’s in-house engineering team providing project leadership and ongoing support and training once the system had gone live.

The Solution

A series of conveyors now take pre-printed cartons from individual carton packing lines and merge them onto a central conveyor where the relevant codes are printed onto them. They are then packaged and sealed into a main carton which is sent to a pallet for distribution. The system processes 800 cartons per hour with minimal handling of the product and has allowed Alexir to keep improving their operating efficiency and quality.

The end results
  • Successful installation and handover
  • Increased productivity and improved customer service
  • Improved safety
