Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor Enables New Levels of Efficiency for Assembly Operation
Congestion and inefficiency plagued the kitting process for a manufacturer that depended on manual processes to feed assembly. Operators carried full totes through the facility from kitting to picking and stacked them for picking until empty. This cluttered floor space, creating an unsafe, difficult-to-navigate work environment, with empty totes waiting for employees to carry them back to the kitting area to repeat the cycle.
With goals to improve kitting process efficiency, capacity and space utilization without disrupting auxiliary processes, the company turned to an automated solution from Honeywell.
Read the rest of the case study to discover how a vertical reciprocating conveyor system was the perfect solution for this manufacturer.
