Sonoco - Case Study

The Requirement

Three busy manufacturing plants in Auckland, Kawerau and Christchurch requires an overhead lifting system to load and unload mandrels into the Tube and Core manufacturing machines and installed with minimal disruption to their operation.

The Challenge

The production machinery, supporting tables and decoilers had already been in place for many years so it was necessary to work around these obstacles to ensure a new overhead monorail could be installed directly above the centreline of the machinery.

Solution to a long-standing challenge

As a solution to a long standing challenge, Cabtec Ltd purchased a Fezer vacuum lifter from Stratalign Limited, for processing product through a processing line. Prior to the purchase, the process had required manual handling, which in today's environment, is not a sustainable option.

More than one option for this solution was investigated by Cabtec with the decision being a vacuum lifter as the winning choice. Cabtec's spokesman recalls, Cabtec selected Stratalign as the winning supplier, based on their ability to provide the technical and professional advice, along with what Cabec considered a top quality product for a competitive price.

The ease of operation is facilitated by the very smooth running bearings and movement points, integral to this structurally sound piece of kit. He continues, From the day the order was placed, the Stratalign team kept us updated with progress, to the day the machine was installed.

The installation process was organized in such a way, by Stratalign, that it caused absolute minimal disruption to a very busy working environment during normal working hours.
