When it comes to handling corrugated cardboard in a warehouse or manufacturing setting, safety is always a top priority. Whether it’s loading, unloading, or transporting cardboard boxes and stacks of paper, there are always risks associated with manual labor. That’s where automated corrugated cardboard handling systems come in.
Our Pile Turners are designed to lift and twist the load quickly and effortlessly directly from the control panel. By minimizing the need for manual labor, these systems offer a number of safety advantages that can help protect workers and prevent accidents.
How Pile Turners can improve Safety at work
Reduce risk of Injury
One of the key advantages of adding a pile turner to your floor, is that they reduce the risk of worker injury. Manual handling of cardboard boxes can lead to musculoskeletal disorders, including strains, sprains, and even chronic pain. These types of injuries can occur when workers are required to lift or move heavy boxes repeatedly throughout the day. By automating these tasks, workers are no longer required to engage in physically demanding labor, reducing the risk of these types of injuries.
Another safety advantage of automated corrugated cardboard handling systems is that they can help prevent accidents that can occur when boxes are mishandled. Manual handling of boxes can lead to boxes being dropped, which can cause damage to the contents and create safety hazards. Our Automated systems, on the other hand, are designed to handle stacks of paper and cardboard in a controlled and consistent manner, reducing the risk of accidents and damage thanks to sensors.
Automated corrugated cardboard handling systems also offer safety advantages in terms of transportation. Moving boxes manually can be a time-consuming and dangerous task, especially when boxes are heavy or awkwardly shaped. Automated systems, however, can transport the pile quickly and safely, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries.
Our Mobile Pile Turners are ideal for the formats of the Printing Industry. Our machines are electrically powered, easy to move around the floor and take very little space. The operator will use the Control Panel to safely lift the load and will then manually twist it. Once lowered back to the ground, the load will be ready to be inserted into the printing machine. This operation will only take a few seconds.
Added Safety Features
Another safety advantage of automated corrugated cardboard handling systems is that they can be equipped with advanced safety features, such as sensors and alarms, that can detect and alert workers to potential hazards. For example, if a box is not properly loaded onto a conveyor belt, the system may detect the error and sound an alarm to alert workers to the problem. This type of safety feature can help prevent accidents and injuries, and ensure that the system is operating correctly. Both our Stationary and Mobile pile turners come with all the necessary safety features to keep your workers safe.
Reduce the need for Manual Labor
Finally, automated corrugated cardboard handling systems can help improve overall safety in the workplace by reducing the need for manual labor. By automating repetitive and physically demanding tasks, workers are free to focus on other tasks that require more cognitive or creative skills. This can help reduce fatigue, improve mental alertness, and ultimately create a safer and more productive work environment.
Our Stationary Pile Turners are fully automatic and can be integrated in the production line with conveyors. They are designed to lift and turn the load quickly and effortlessly from the control panel. The operator will then be able to inspect the load and make sure that the sheets are aligned and remove waste sheets.
We also offer an Automatic Pallet Dispenser to collect, organize and stack pallets, improving the organization of the warehouse and allowing our clients to save space and use their operators where are really needed.
In conclusion, automated corrugated cardboard handling systems offer a number of safety advantages that can help protect workers and prevent accidents. From reducing the risk of musculoskeletal disorders to preventing accidents during transportation, these systems are designed to improve safety and efficiency in the workplace. By investing in automated cardboard handling technology, companies can not only improve their bottom line but also create a safer and more sustainable work environment for their employees.
