We all know floor space is a valuable commodity. Especially when you are trying to optimize your output and available storage. But what happens when you need pre-erected cartons stored handy to the packing line? You end up with an abundance of pallets or unstable stacks creating potential workplace hazards.
What if we told you that we can eliminate these hazards in your packhouse?
Here at EQM, we have a wide range of conveyor systems to fit almost every purpose. We can help you with driven, band or belt conveyors, chain conveyor or carton rack conveyor solutions for your packhouse.
But let us not overwhelm you with all the options. In this article, we will focus on the EQM empty carton rack for your packhouse. Why? Well, empty carton rack systems are one of the most cost-efficient systems to install. With the current economic volatility, systems that make you more efficient without increasing your ongoing costs are important.
What is a carton rack conveyor?
Carton rack conveyors are the simplest, most robust, and affordable form of conveyors. Furthermore, they suit a large range of applications. They are a lightweight, low cost, and ergonomic way to move and store your packaging. They are modular, like our other conveyor systems. Therefore, can easily be customised to suit your packhouse. Since the conveyor relies on gravity to move the cartons forward, there are no ongoing costs. Once the carton at the front of the racking is moved, the next one will fall into place. This also makes the system ergonomically friendly as line workers don’t bend and stretch as much.
The empty carton rack conveyor fits perfectly beside your carton erectors. Thus, you can optimize your production by eliminating the need for physical lifting and shifting. This in turn will reduce worker physical stress, along with workplace injuries. It also offers you a long-term storage solution.
Carton Rack Conveyor in Action
What other benefits can you expect from the EQM empty carton rack conveyor?
It can be portable. So it can be moved around your packhouse or even from location to location. As we mentioned, it is lightweight so you will not have to worry about bulky, heavy pieces. It is extremely simple with no training time required.
The empty carton rack conveyor is fantastic as a stand-alone system but pairs it with our PAC-LINE Monorail Enclosed Track Conveyor system. You will revolutionise your packhouse carton supply. And what is even better is that the PAC-LINE system is ceiling mounted. Thus it takes no floor space and can distribute and store hundreds of cartons. So carton packing lanes don’t run out.
