Increased efficiency and reduced labor costs using a new stacker and pallet transfer system

The project

The client, a medical software and technology provider, found it increasingly difficult to find space to stage pallets around its operator work stations causing inefficiencies in unpacking and repacking computers for shipment.

pallet stacker

The solution

PeakLogix designed and integrated a stationary stacking system consisting of pallet transfer conveyor and custom stacker to keep pallets organized and flowing towards the operator work stations.

The results

70% increase in productivity and 20% decrease in labor costs

The new stacker and pallet transfer system allows the client to receive material with electric stackers for transport directly to the pallet transfers. Once the pallets are placed on the pallet transfers, they are then introduced into the systems picking lanes. The integration yielded 70% increase in productivity for this client and reduced their overall labor costs by 20%.
