Palletising for white lining at RS Clare
Packaging and palletising white lining products
RS Clare Further automate with Robot palletising.
Major road marking supplier RS Clare & Co Ltd further automate their packaging system with a palletising system.
RMGroup were pleased to supply RS Clare’s with an ABB robot and 3 pallet accumulation system to palletise bags from a previously installed Form, fill and seal packaging machine for their white lining products. Originally RS Clare packed product manually but chose to install Form fill and seal technology in March 2011. Following successful installation of the packaging machine, and excellent service from the RMGroup, RS Clare placed the order for the robot in January and the system was delivered and installed by March.
Chris Enwright, Manufacturing Manager at RSClare & Co confirms. . .
“Following the successful installation of a Form, Fill and Seal machine in March 2011 the operators at RS Clare quickly became familiar with the new technology. The accuracy, reliability and effectiveness of the packaging line significantly improved the packaging operation resulting in improved schedule adherence, through put and reduced waste.
As RMGroup demonstrated a clear understanding of our needs, had experience of our products and we had experience of their exceptional service they were the natural choice when we decided to further automate the packaging line.
Taking advise from RM Group and working within the confines of a budget RS Clare opted for an ABB robot with a 3 pallet accumulation system to palletise thermoplastic lining material onto pallets. The configuration of the system and engaging the operators was critical to the success of the project, for which RMGroup supported throughout.
The system was ordered in January 2013 and installed in March 2012; on time, within budget and exceeded all expectations. The system has resulted in significantly reduced manual handling, improved line capacity and overall throughput.
RS Clare would like to thank all the staff at RMGroup especially the engineers for their continued support and service enabling RS Clare to continuously improve their thermoplastic packaging operations.”
RMGroup have dominated the thermoplastic packaging market for over a decade, and given a good reputation in the industry will continue to do so in the coming years.
