Nobody wants conveyor down-time. Lost production, overtime pay, overnight shipping charges...it all adds up. Even light daily usage will cause wear and tear over time that can lead to a shutdown. Are you prepared?
Pallet wrappers and pallet wrapping equipment are a great way to ensure maximum efficiency while cutting labor and stretch film costs. Designed with affordability and versatility in mind, stretch wrappers can maximize productivity, cut costs and offer years of trouble free performance. Even if you handle unusual pallet loads or have other special requirements, we can help you find a stretch wrapping solution that will get the job done right.
As you already know, both FedEx and UPS recently started subjecting all packages to DIM weight charges, increasing the cost of shipping smaller, lighter packages by approximately seventeen percent! Finding new ways to minimize your shipping costs is more crucial than ever, and Siggins can help with automated dimension scanners from CubiScan!
Load Transfer Stations can help improve warehouse safety and productivity by allowing the operator to remain on their forklift during the machine's operation, eliminating the need for manual pallet handling.
Carton flow, if implemented properly, can dramatically improve the efficiency of picking in a distribution or manufacturing environment. Using Pareto's law (the 80/20 rule), typically less than 20% of a distribution center's product should be contained within carton flow.
Proper lighting is essential in almost every industrial operation. Siggins provides cost effective lighting solutions that can reduce long-term facility electrical costs. In the past, we've been helping our clients replace HID canister lights with fluorescent fixtures. Recently LED lighting fixture technologies have become more affordable, and they can often be a superior investment when compared to fluorescent options.
