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 though, 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. Whether you are looking for something that is driven, band or belt conveyors, chain conveyor or carton rack conveyors, we can help you find the solution for your packhouse.
But let us not overwhelm you with all the options. In this article we are going to 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, and with the current volatility of the economy, systems that are going to make you more efficient without increasing your on-going costs are something we know a lot of businesses are looking for.
What is a carton rack conveyor?
Carton rack conveyors are the simplest, most robust, and affordable form of conveyor and suit a large range of applications. They are lightweight, low cost, and ergonomic way to move and store your packaging. Like our other conveyor systems, it is modular and can easily be customised to suit your packhouse. There is no on-going costs as the conveyor relies on gravity to move the cartons forward. 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 reducing the bending and stretching required by line workers.
The empty carton rack conveyor is a perfect fit beside your carton erectors. This application will enable you to optimize your production by eliminating the need for physical lifting and shifting. This in turn will reduce worker physical stress, along with the occurrence of workplace injuries.
