Automated Crane System Cuts Lost Time

Automated Crane System Cuts Lost Time A case study describes how a heavy metals manufacturing company boosted productivity by installing an automated overhead crane system. The new system handles loads of up to 40 metric tons and uses automatic identification to track inventory. Data on dimensions and weight of the load enable the system to optimize storage for easy retrieval.

Conveyor Turns on a Dime

Conveyor Turns on a Dime A conveyor element provides a 180-degree turn capability via a belt power curve. The unit features a small inside radius that is designed to conserve space in tight operations. The system is bidirectional, and features cylindrical end rolls that allow for easy material transfer. A video shows how it works.

Keeping the Cold Chain Cool

Keeping the Cold Chain Cool Systems for temperature-controlled logistics and the associated distribution channels usually work effectively, but if there's a breakdown, the consequences can include illness and death. This article looks at the changes in practices of pharmaceutical distribution after a recent deadly incident; and at advances in cooling and monitoring technologies. Providers of cold-chain services have also grown from specialty operations to strong global operations.

Technologies Improve Logistics

Technologies Improve Logistics For some companies, logistics operations are slowly moving to smoother flows with mobile, wireless systems, while other companies are still mired in the old ways. This article looks at several factors that drive efficiency for the leaders: advancing cellular technology, declining device costs, and increasing use of mobile technology by consumers and corporations.

Packaging Machine is Versatile

Packaging Machine is Versatile This automated packaging machine uses both longitudinal and transverse cutting and creasing capabilities to enable a huge variety of packing options on a single device. With a vertical outfeed design, the machine occupies only 8 ft by 6 ft of warehouse space. Targeted applications include e-commerce fulfillment, window and door packaging, furniture manufacturing, and printing and marketing. A video explains how the machine can be used for "on-demand" packaging.

Tamper-proof Labeling

Tamper-proof Labeling Customized labels provide brand protection by using technology to deter tampering by even the most determined counterfeiter. Labels use holographic foils, paper, or plastic films that integrate a variety of taggant technologies; and make use of clear, ultraviolet bar codes as well. An embedded-film option allows for instant verification, as shown in this video.

Smart Systems Streamline Dock Ops

Smart Systems Streamline Dock Ops If costs are getting out of hand, take a look at practices in your yard and dock areas — there may be gold in them thar operations. Systems that link loading dock equipment with software to monitor, communicate, and manage dock status can help users reduce detention fees, spoilage costs, and accidents. The basis for many of these systems is radio frequency and GPS technology that begins tracking while materials are still on the road.

Nanoparticles for Nanofriction

Nanoparticles for Nanofriction Lubricating grease uses ceramic nanoparticles to offer low coefficient of friction and long life in a wide range of operating temperatures and pressures — ideal for lift trucks, conveyors, and other material handling applications. The material is food-grade certified and resistant to water, steam, and acids.
