This production line transports divan bed bases (of various size) from one end of the factory to two inspection tables before being fed into a wrapping machine, manoeuvred by two 90-degree rotations, through a passage around into the storage area where it moves over gravity roller conveyors ready to be lifted onto racking.
There was a desire to reduce labour of, and by, operators along the production line, as well as speeding up movement and transportation, whilst ensuring minimal health and safety risks. They also wanted to minimise space.
We presented our range of machines that meet those needs and found that they could also benefit from automating the line.
The machines they have include:
Heavy Duty CTek Belt-driven Straight Line conveyors to transport the bases and two C90Tek 90-degree conveyors to navigate the two 90-degree turns into the storage area.
Working with the management and operations team, we liaised via video calls to establish their requirements and matched this with a to-scale virtual walk-through of their current line, to identify how the machines would fit into the existing line and where they could use other conveyors from our range.
Our designers instigated the seamless addition to the line by ensuring minimal space wastage and the placement of multiple machines along the line to speed up various aspects. This assisted the installations for the fitters on-site and enabled seamless addition to their space, making the process and usage of space more efficient. The addition of the machines to do multiple functions of the process, meant that it was accurate, sped up and increased the amount of layered mattresses produced.
