Materials handling investment at W. E. Roberts

UK-based W. E. Roberts Corrugated have replaced their current corrugator conveyor with a new line from Avanti.

At twice the length of the old line, it allows the company to react to changes in demand, from holding more stock as work in progress when warehouses are full, to more efficient higher run speed when needed. Improved materials handling of the new line will cut waste costs and with a 24 hour advice line and readily available parts catalogue from Avanti, downtime will also be reduced.

Andrejus Aleksandrovas, Corrugator Manager, WER, says, “I want to thank everyone who was directly involved with this project, the conveyors exceeded my expectations. Being fully automated means some of the manual interventions we used to carry out are now a thing of the past. All in all, it is a smart investment for the business. This new line will future proof our improvements in corrugating and sheet feeding for years to come, creating a solid foundation for any further investments we make.”
