Intelligent expertise - Consultation process
Our Intelligent Load Stability system really performs because it’s tailored to meet the needs of every customer and their operations perfectly. That’s why working in partnership is so vital to our success and the difference we make to our customers. It all begins with a consultation.
1. We Discover
First, we really get to know your operations, challenges and opportunities to improve.
One of our experts will test your current system, looking into materials and every machine used, efficiency of material use and time taken to prepare each pallet, and stretch and stability achieved.
We’ll also want to know about any challenges you face, or particular areas you’re keen to optimise or improve.
2. We Recommend
Our discovery phase will lead to a full report and a fully-costed recommendation designed specifically for you.
These recommendations will not only address your specific concerns or challenges, but also identify opportunities to reduce costs, minimise resources and materials used, optimise safety, speed and stability to deliver the ultimate in pallet wrapping performance.
3. We Optimise
Once you’re happy with our recommendations, we’ll get to work developing and setting up your new system. We spend time on ensuring that set-up is perfect, fully tested and only handed over to you when we’re happy it’s performing as it should.
Your staff will be fully trained to continue making best use of the system, and comprehensive training and reference materials will be left with you. We’ll keep in touch, so you have access to our experts with any queries or questions as the new system beds in.
4. We Support
An optimised system requires regular auditing, so this is part of the service.
We’ll ensure that you’re able to continue meeting targets, making genuine savings on resources, materials and costs, optimising safety and stability, and will make sure that the system is performing at its best.
We’ll always be happy to discuss new and emerging challenges or ambitions – we like to think we can find a way!
State-of-the-art mobile system testing
We use state-of-the art systems for thorough tests to really understand how we can help customers to improve process, lower costs and optimise stability. The FEF2000 mobile testing system measures the pressure exerted on wrapped pallets to help you get to your optimal solution, balancing great stability with efficient use of materials and resources.
We mount electronic modules that measure the forces in 40 positions on each wrapped load, meaning we can identify over- or underuse of wrap and too much force (which could lead to crushing) or too little force (which creates instability).
This kind of sophisticated and detailed testing allows us to create settings that fit your needs perfectly. It can be especially useful for customers who have been through extensive transit trials as part of a primary or secondary packaging specification, helping them to recalibrate to a perfect fully tested setting.
We’ll adjust your machine settings and train your operatives to monitor this and manage it effectively, using the test data gathered as a benchmark and continuing to optimise your pallet-wrapping in the future.
When we work with you to understand your needs, recommend a tailored solution and optimise machines and material, you get total load stability and a real weight off your mind. Plus, we’ll make sure it stays that way with regular visits to ensure your system is always on top form.
