TOTES, DIVIDERS & OTHER CONTAINER SOLUTIONS
Flexcon, Berkeley Heights, N.J., debuted new container solutions, designed to help protect and organize goods and optimize space utilization throughout the supply chain.
Flexcon’s newest AS/RS totes are compatible with virtually any robotic system, and its new omni-directional pallet sleeves and divider systems are ideal for vertical lift modules.
STRETCH WRAP SYSTEM
Millwood, Inc., Vienna, Ohio, debuted its Liberty Technologies-branded Series 800 stretch wrap system, a conveyorized, fully automatic, high-speed rotary arm stretch wrap system equipped with dual film carriages that allow for optimal pre-stretch levels of up to 300% and wraps more than 100 loads per hour.
This system comes equipped with two state-of-the-art technologies—FAST (force anticipation stretch technology) and film consumption analysis.
FAST is an innovative film feed system that precisely delivers stretch film to the load based on actual load dimensions. This advanced technology prevents film breakage due to stretch film defects and product load puncture hazards, and provides a wide range of force-to-load applications on heavy or light loads, preventing product defamation.
Film consumption analysis is a stretch film monitoring system that provides an accurate reading of the film applied to the load. It indicates the stretch film utilized on the existing roll, provides a history of film consumption and pre-stretch levels on the last 30 pallet loads and manages the total film used and load containment.
This system comes with a true “no thread” film carriage and cut and wipe-down system, providing for a total automatic system. It’s designed to wrap A, B and C loads of all sizes, weights and heights and will keep up with the most demanding production rates.
PREVENTING PALLET PUSH-THROUGH
Adrian’s Safety Solutions, Knoxville, Tenn., introduced an easy-to-deploy line of rack safety products designed to keep pallet rack flue-space clear.
Made from 2-inch, 10,000-pound break strength cargo webbing, this solution features specially designed hardware that can be attached to the existing pallet rack upright within seconds. Rack safety straps are mounted to the back of the rack and act as a visual barrier to prevent pallets from pushing through into the flue space. The rack safety net adds yellow mesh to the strong cargo webbing and hardware. Two versions of the net are available—the fixed version for the back of the rack to prevent pallet push-through and the sliding net, which is designed for the front of the bay to protect work areas and allow for easy pick-and-pack operations.
