Our customer produces around 15 pallets of milk powder per day. The product is placed in 25KG sacks and put on the pallet via a robot. The customer would wrap each pallet by hand but due to export requirements, weight, WH&S requirements and type of perishable goods, it was proving to be a very labour-intensive process. Powdered milk is a high value commodity and our customer needed to be confident of the load containment process.
Our customer is Australia’s largest producers of sawn timber products and historically strapped timber by hand changing from steal to polyester. FROMM created a new faster process to not only strap the timber packs but automate the coil handling and coil storage.
We were contacted by an OEM to engineer a pallet wrapping solution for crates of milk.The customer wanted to stretch wrap up to 50 pallets for milk per hour coming out of their processing, and then transitioning into cold storage after wrapping.
Plywood is an oversized material usually packaged in two lengths either 2.4 or 3m. Our customer wanted to automate the wrapping process and speed up throughput by allowing forklift staff to load the plywood onto the wrapping machine, apply a top sheet and the stretch film needed to be applied automatically and wrap to pre agreed patterns.
This installation was an Australian first in the Distribution and Logistics market with two wrapping heads operating at the same time securing a pallet efficiently with very high throughput. Downtime caused by roll changes can be done conveniently and quickly with minimal operator interaction reducing potential risks.
FROMM Packaging installed a stretch wrapping station for a new 3PL warehouse. During the scope of works our technicians worked closely with the customer to determine their needs to ensure the machine was built to meet their requirements. The stretch wrapping station needed to accommodate a wide range of pallet heights and styles such as fragile loads, mixed loads and tall loads.
Our customer is a large Australian retail chain and manage a busy warehouse. The warehouse staff are constantly unloading shipping containers, storing product and then pick and pack distribution via pallets. The loads are assembled from a pick list and are usually irregular shapes. Some inboard to the pallet, some outboard. Some loads are heavy and stable, others light and unstable. Our customer wanted an uplift in the number of pallets they distribute each day, improved pallet stabilization and were seeking a wrapping system that required little to no human interaction.
Our customer is a leading plastic film and laminate manufacturer and would often wrap oversized rectangle shaped or extra high pallets by hand. Fromm designed the SMH-SPL Wrapping Machine to accommodate not only the standard 1156 x 1156mm pallet but also up to and including 1200 x 3200mm. Wrapping the pallets with the FROMM SMH-SPL Wrapping Machine gave the customer confidence that the products would appear consistent and withstand rigorous shipping conditions.
FROMM Packaging designed and installed two new strapping stations that will revolutionise the way strap coils are managed and changed in the brick manufacturing industry. The strapping track needed to be free of contamination and brick impediments that could cause damage. FROMM Packaging engineered a system to allow debris to seamlessly fall to the ground rather than collect in the track to reduce downtime and product failure. The customer wanted to remove the manual lifting process of changing around 200 strap coils per month. FROMM Packaging engineered new automated strap dispensers and moved to jumbo 16,000m strapping coils reducing downtime between each coil change.
