This production line incorporates the inclusion of 4 RollPack machines for ease of rolling beds of pocket springs into paper, to be palletised (4 rolls per pallet) and stored for later use or transport.
The machines that make up this line include:
20 CTek Belt-driven Straight Line conveyors to transport the pocket spring beds to the RollPacks, 5 C90Tek 90 degree rotation conveyors and a FlipUpTek extension.
There was a desire to reduce labour of, and by, operators along the production line, as well as increasing capacity and speeding up production, whilst ensuring minimal health and safety risks and better utilisation of space.
We presented our range of machines that meet those needs and found that they could also benefit from automating the line.
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.
