Textile supplier Adar increases unloading capacity by 150%
Our objective has been to shorten lead times from receiving goods to invoicing. The key was to increase unloading capacity. So far, we’ve achieved an increase of 150%.
The Caljan conveyors are highly recommendable. Any company with vision must consider the work environment when improving any process. Given the savings in time, I am sure that the ROI will be very short.
Caljan Telescopic Conveyors help increase unloading capacity by 150%
A cycle time analysis identified palletising and wrapping to be the bottle necks in the unloading process. Adar were keen to automate, stipulating that all elements of the system must be able to handle rolls weighing between 5 and 70 kg. Even totally extended, the Caljan Telescopic Belt Conveyors can easily handle this load.
Today approx. 15,000 - 20,000 rolls are unloaded each day from 20+ containers. This is a substantial increase on the previous capacity of just 8 containers a day.
