Operators were required to move large quantities of small sheets of plastic from a pallet to a dolly so it could be pushed into a machine. It was also imperative that the stack was perfectly plumb and level. This operation was requiring the operators to bend lower than was acceptable, creating the opportunity for back injury.
Two custom made stackers were required for each line. One stacker would automatically lift the pallet as the plastic sheets were removed. The other stacker would first lift the dolly to an ergonomic height, and then lower as the plastic sheets were added. This stock also had a vertical guide bar to keep the stock plump. This slide bar had to be adjustable to suit different size sheet packs.
We consulted with client, took measurement from site, designed and implemented manufacture of the final product, and finally delivered, installed and commissioned them until ready to use.
