Industrial Laundry SystemsIndustrial laundry systems for efficient sorting and bagging
These systems were designed to improve efficiencies while sorting clean linen by operators, prepare controlled weight lots of linen and brought these lots in an automatic vertical bagging machine with a capacity of up to 300 bags an hour.
In addition;
• Improve operator efficiencies by placing the material so the pieces could be easily identified by the operators before sorting. While before the operator had to sort linen in jammed lots.
• Allows better working ergonomics for the operators with the bin positioning used to assist operators.
• Offers working cells to allow the operator to focus on the task at hand with a controlled flow of material.
• Automatic bagging versus hand bagging
• Measurable increased productivityA few points on ROI :
1- Reducing handling of the delivery linen bags
From the clients to the laundry, inside the laundry, and returning to the laundry.
2- Water, chemicals and electricity savings, no longer the need to clean each linen bag.
3- Savings on the purchasing of linen bags and their replacement when they are damaged.
4- Reducing the head count required for sorting and bagging because of the efficiency gained with automation.
5- Better bags content controlled since it is managed by a machine
6- Plastic bags are totally recyclable
Corrugated cores manipulationMaterial handling systems to corrugated cores manipulation.

This system is used to automatically feed two automatic core cutting machines, It allows 3 different diameter cores to be picked up automatically moved over a 40′ distance into a Solutech automated stores. Handles corrugated cores up to 208” long.Great ROI !

 

1- Automatic versus manual insertion of cores. Previously, two persons were needed for this operations.
2- Stopped machine break down and winder stops due to none conforming cores, since now the system can detect these situations upfront.
3- Improved core supplier’s quality, by detecting upfront issues.
4- Complete operation with state of the art safety norms compliance.
5- System designed for a 24/7 opérations

Pallet InverterPallet inverter

The pallet inverter is used, to reverse pallet loads of 180 degrees, The operator place a pallet on top of the pallet load, when the push button is pressed, the load is pressed between two plates, rotate 180 degrees and is place back on the floor automatically.This technologies is use for many applications:

 

• Replacing damaged pallets
• Transfer from wooden pallet onto plastic pallets
• Transfer from conventional pallets onto customer specified pallets

Automated Pallet DispenserAutomated Pallet Dispenser

This system can be designed to distribute single pallet, double pallets and even triple pallets directly on the floor, aligned and ready for pick up. Solutech offers a complete line of pallet dispensers. With a pallet dispenser you will avoid all risks of injuries in your distribution centers and will improve your operators’ productivity.

Top Cap DispenserTop cap dispenser

This machine was made to dispense automatically caps and direct them towards the automatic capping machine.The caps are first sorted in order to be all in the same direction, than directed into a chute to arrive in a controlled manner into the capping machine.

Solutech built this machine using stainless steel, it meets FDA requirements and is very easy to clean.
