Wrap It Up!

An uncomplicated, unsophisticated, common object, found in almost every manufacturing facility around the globe – the pallet. Some 80 percent of all U.S. commerce is carried on pallets. So widespread is their use that they account for more than 46 percent of total U.S. hardwood lumber production. Needless to say, pallets are a critical part of the supply chain. They serve as a base for assembling, handling, sorting, storing, and transporting goods as a unit load.

With costs and competition rising, manufacturers are continually challenged to increase throughput while reducing production costs. In other words, forced to do more with less which is a key driver to automating manufacturing processes. Alba understands the need to create optimal process flows while eliminating waste – in delays, defects, over production and unnecessary motion.

With years of experience, efficient, integrated, rock-solid pallet handling and automated stretch wrapping applications are second nature to Alba.

The pallet conveyor system included 135 feet of CDLR Conveyor and two (2) Turntables with motorized bases. The new conveyor feeds an existing stretch wrap system.
