SALES SUCCESS STORIES

order to transport cleanly and without
potentially unwinding.
"Often in our business we work
with other companies to create total
solutions. We have amazing partners who are top of their fields and
we know how to come together to
understand our customer's need and
provide effective results," says Charlie
Williamson of Advanced Equipment
Company (AEC)

Working with its conveyor partner,
AEC saw an immediate opportunity to
save the client in packaging costs and
remove unnecessary labor.

Out with The Old
A human had to manually place
the right-sized sleeve on each bobbin which were then carted to a heat
shrink machine - a very time consuming process.

In with The New
A snap on/snap off fixture is
attached for the appropriate sized
sleeve. The bobbin is placed on a conveyor fixture, automatically sleeved
and moved by a slat conveyor through
the heat tunnel for shrinking.
"Our partner provided the shrink
sleeve application and heat tunnel. We
provided the special conveyors, custom fixtures for holding the bobbins
through the process, and performed
the full installation," said Charlie.

Into the Future
"What was before a painfully slow
manual procedure is now a future-facing automated one - saving them time
and increasing efficiency by reducing
errors," stated Charlie.
A human element is still needed at
the beginning to place a bobbin of
thread onto the fixture, but then the
conveyor takes over, routing it through
sleeve placement and heat shrinking
and depositing the finished goods onto
an accumulation table for hand packing into cartons for shipping.
The customer is very happy, material handling artist Charlie Williamson
has said, "We saved them in packaging and labor costs providing an
extremely good payback."
