On assembly lines, efficient material handling is crucial to productivity. Since transportation does not involve processing the item, transport times should be minimized. With properly planned material flows, buffer sizes are minimized and thus the WIP (work in process) value reduced.
A properly planned manual transfer system is the ultimate solution for expanding companies, companies that need more capacity from the same floor space, companies that need better production organization or shorter changeover times, and those planning completely new facilities.
Using our extensive experience of designing material handling systems for a variety of industries, together with the client we will find the optimal solution suitable for its production space, phases and future prospects.
Transfer units together with flow-through shelving solutions, combined with workstations with an extensive range of accessories, constitute comprehensive elements enabling excellent productivity.
The packing and shipment of products forms an important part of any industrial process. This operation is often automated as production volumes soar. By this stage, all of the required tasks and processes have already been properly designed, and all that is needed is a new, compact, space-saving transfer system. Standard modules are easy to integrate with existing packing equipment, keeping investment costs low.
