Objectives

Consistent predictable throughput

Flexibility and onsite control

Improved safety

Systems delivered

A bespoke automation and controls system where totes are placed manually onto an infeed conveyor and a control system looks for a gap on the main line moving the totes forward when required.

 

The conveyor is controlled by photocells at each decision point so that the totes only transfer onto that section if the conveyor in front is clear and running.

 

HMI screens provide a user friendly, real time view of system performance.

 

Site throughput can now run in excess of 1000 totes per hour 24/7 if necessary.

Increased productivity

Better Health & Safety

Improved energy efficiency

Space savings

Improved tracking and reporting

12 month ROI
