PRLog - Dec. 4, 2014 - Hytrol Conveyor Company, Inc., manufacturers of advanced conveyor systems, controls, and solutions, and integration partner, Advanced Equipment Company, provided an efficient solution for Arcadia Dairy Farms.
Scott Hovis. Sales Engineer at Advanced Equipment Company (AEC) said the initial project began by a need to make the business more efficient by using fewer fork trucks. Hovis commented, “We developed a conveyor system to transport cartons from filler room to palletizers.”
Arcadia added more palletizers and AEC added more conveyor line to support those palletizers; they also made pallet handling conveyors to transport full pallets through automated wrappers continuing to the end of the line. In 2013, AEC assisted Arcadia by adding a new Hytrol conveyor line to handle a new product.
James Ward, Food Technologist of Arcadia noted, “We use Hytrol Pallet Handling Conveyors with the accumulation features to automate the wrapping of our pallets and to distribute those pallets to the warehouse. This helped us reduce operator touches.”
Hytrol Conveyor and AEC have been working together for 50 years. The teams bring together experienced engineers and emerging technologies for integrated material handling systems.
