A large consumer paper towel manufacturer needed to increase efficiency and reduce cost. Part of this effort included the integration of in-line and robotic palletizers with pallet labelers and automatic stretch wrap equipment.
SPS Corporation was chosen as the integration partner for the project. SPS provided two new Lantech wrappers with pallet labelers and Accu-Sort scanners. The system was designed to wrap loads without operator intervention while also labeling and verifying bar codes for use of the company’s warehouse management system.
The successful partnership and integration of the auto palletizing and stretch wrapping operations significantly reduced manual stacking and wrapping operations. The return on investment for the entire project was less than two years.
