Changing the traffic pattern is one way

Changing the traffic pattern is one way, and the number of people working near forklifts is also important. The wharf is one of the most congested areas in the warehouse. As we can see, there are some people who are building the goods, and what the forklift needs to do is deliver the goods from the stretcher wrapper. It’s also possible that another person is operating a stretcher wrapper. Keeping a close eye on the environment around them is something that these people need to do, while focusing on their work is also something that needs to be done. If not, do you know what will happen? This can lead to unnecessary accidents.

Do you know what happens if no one operates the stretching wrapper? Getting to and from the car many times throughout the day is what forklift drivers need to do. Because your purpose is to package the goods. This puts them at risk of injury, from their ankles to their backs. In fact, according to the warehouse of education and research committee, when the operator is getting on or off, the injured people will happen, it is estimated that about a third of the forklift related injuries.

One solution is to be lucky. Do you know how to use the modern stretch wrappers with enhanced automation? It can cut film from the end of its packaging cycle. Also, fixing the film to the next load is also achievable. The start of these machines can be from remote control or lanyard switches. This eliminates a person close to the control panel to operate the machine. At the same time, the aim is to get the driver off the bus. At the same time, they don’t have to leave their forklifts, and the risk of injury can be reduced.

If you want to learn more about stretch-wrappers, you can come to us, and this stretch wrapper can help your driver keep their forklift and reduce damage.

 

 

On forklift safety day

On forklift safety day, do you know how to make sure your forklift is safe? Now, let’s see.

To commemorate the third “forklift safety day” is our goal, to achieve this goal, today will be a great day to be our thoughts. The purpose of this day is to remind everyone to pay attention to safety. Do you know the number of forklift accidents? In fact, it’s more often than anyone wants to increase it. You can read the following articles and learn more about how to make your driver safe today and everyday.

According to the occupational safety and health administration (OSHA), you can see that about 110, 000 forklift accidents occur each year. Just last year, do you know how many people died in forklift accidents? Generally speaking, there will be 50 people.

Today’s article is an article on mechanical equipment. In general, do you know what causes the damage and death associated with the forklift? When people stand too close to the mobile forklift, they are prone to injury and death. In fact, most of the workers injured in the forklift know one thing, and the thing is known about the existence of the machine. Do you know how forklift operators do it? In general, they may have been incorrectly rotated or accelerated, or they have not communicated with operators and workers.

Do you want to reduce the risk of a forklift accident at your factory? Here are three ways to reduce your risk of a forklift accident.

Individual pedestrians and forklift traffic have a big role to play, and in general, it can reduce the number of people working near forklifts. The number of drivers getting on and off the bus can also be reduced.

The most effective way to reduce the forklift accident is to separate the pedestrian traffic. But it may require companies to change the layout of their facilities. In fact, we all know that when pedestrians and forklifts have separate lanes, this is the best.

 

Stretch Wrappers

At the other end, a giant canned beverage maker needs to be considered. Do you know what the factory is like? It is a huge automation facilities, its role is to “timely” product, a supplier of LIDS were included, delivery of 250000 aluminum foil on a tray, it can also realize, isn’t that great? .

We can make a hypothesis that if there are 250,000 aluminum LIDS on the truck that are going to spread across the trailer, then it’s very likely that they will delay their production. And it will certainly take time and labor. Why? Because they need time and labor to clean up. We have large automated assembly line is very tall to the requirement of some of the product components, on the one hand, it not only reached the factory must be intact, and they can be stacked perfectly and packing still in the factory is looking forward to. In this way, they can be put into production immediately. Do you know what a broken lid does? It is completely lost and unusable, and the broken lid has lost time and benefits to suppliers and recipients.

In both cases, you can see that brand image and reputation are at stake. It is impossible for them to easily compensate their customers if a small supplier encounters a loss of transport. If a large company loses time due to damage to the ship, the cost of its delay will be high, sometimes as high as tens of thousands of dollars. It’s really a big loss.

Do you know what the butterfly effect is to achieve proper control over the pallet load? In fact, it has more impact than most people realize. Why is that? Because it affects not only those who have to pick up the pieces, but also the bottom line of the company and other companies.

 

 

Stretching Package

Second, defective unit load. If there is no effective stretching package, we can see that the load will be displaced. They can’t stretch vertically and that’s the end result. We can see that the non-vertical load, or more than 2 inches of vertical alignment, will be damaged. During transportation, we can see that they have increased the risk of multiple processing. It’s very dangerous.

Through experience, we have also concluded that if your customers receive almost no damage or tear, they are not happy. And generally, the sale of these goods must be sold at a lower price, so the profits are greatly reduced. Therefore, it is impossible to take a lower price to sell products, because in this way, your interests will be greatly damaged.

If this happens, there will be a lot of side effects. As you can imagine, brand loyalty can be compromised. There are dents, crushed or faded products that people don’t want to buy. And next to your damaged product, do you know what it is? It’s a competitive brand. The customer tries another merchant, which you can’t accept.

This can seriously endanger business relationships. We all know that if product damage, it puts pressure on business relationships. Every time we open the door of a wharf, a truck damaged products will appear problem, so, there is no doubt that the customer time and money for you, would make a big problem.

You know what it is? We can see a lot of global shipping losses, more than $60 billion a year. Do you know what caused these losses? Generally speaking, ineffective stretch packaging is the main cause of product damage. However, you can reduce a lot of damage by improving your stretch wrap, which is also good news.

Well, why don’t you do it? Whether it’s your clients, your environment, or your bottom line, they’ll be grateful.

 

Pallet Wrapping

pallet wrapping, stretch film

Do you know what the damage to your brand’s reputation will be? Do you know what it is?

I don’t know if you have ordered something from an online retailer – can we cite an example, such as a furniture or electronics? The condition of arrival. But what do you do if a broken shelf is received, or only one ear is received, not two ears? We all think about it, and you might be disappointed that you might think twice about placing an order with that retailer. There is even a possibility of writing a particularly bad comment online.

In the same situation, the situation of shipping products on a larger scale can also occur. If your goods are damaged or lost, can you imagine that your customers will be happy? I think the answer is obvious, and no one will be happy! Therefore, during transportation, we should try our best to avoid any damage to your product.

In the area of transportation logistics, do you know why we define transportation damage? We can make any changes, reducing customer satisfaction is not our goal. However, if the product is damaged frequently during transportation, customer satisfaction will be reduced. “Do you know how many shapes and sizes the shipping losses are? We can take a look at each of these two main types:

First, the work load failed. You can imagine if you opened the door of a truck, you saw a scene of products everywhere. The truck’s vibration or lack of control results in the load. Do you know what it is? Generally, we classify it as “not for sale”. “It is very common for these goods to be sent back to the manufacturer, or it is very common to send them to landfills.” Do you know how these two methods are produced? It’s all due to the change in load conditions.

 

Stretch Wrappers

You can look at an article on mechanical equipment today, which is called, “forklift injuries often happen when people stand too close to a mobile forklift.”

There is no doubt that separating the two traffic flows is the simplest way to mitigate this risk. Add the method of the designated forklift lane, and you can consider that by this method, pedestrians can get an indication that pedestrians are instructed not to walk in. The purpose of this directive is to specify and clearly mark the forklift space for loading, unloading, and pallet packaging, which is also a simple way to reduce pedestrian/forklift traffic. Reducing the number of people working near forklifts is another way to reduce risk. But, as we all know, if you want to achieve this, it can be difficult. However, you can see that the obvious forklift area is a good start.

Do you know what a well-defined loading and unloading zone injury prevention plan is? It’s also a great way to help reduce risk.

Consider semi-automatic or automatic stretch packaging as another way to reduce this risk. Do you know what an automatic stretching wrapper does? In addition to packaging a tray, it can also cut film from the end of the packaging cycle. It can also fix the film on the next load.

Many automated options are also useful, allowing forklift drivers to start stretching the packaging without leaving the forklift.

Risk needs to be reduced.

Putting them on the forklift is the best way to reduce the risk of forklift operators. At the same time, we all know that the best way to do this is to use a stretch wrapper to eliminate the need for manual packaging. If you’re looking at your options now, and you want to know more, it’s ok to check our free guide. It’s also necessary to buy a stretch wrap.

 

 

Stretch Wrapping

Improving efficiency and reducing risk is the goal of all businesses, but what can we do to improve efficiency and reduce risk? By keeping the operators on their forklift, you can do this.

Recently, we’ve all seen a distribution center, which brings us to a question. Do you know what the impact of stretching packaging is? It is slowing down their forklift drivers. During the average shift, forklift operators can carry out nearly 200 forklifts. This frequency is still relatively high. At the same time, we all know that this customer’s problem is not unique, and that many of the warehouse operations that rely on manual stretch packaging have found a problem? They found that the process slowed down their speeds significantly, especially if they increased their volume significantly.

However, we all know that hand-wrappers are slow and boring, but not just. At the same time, manual packaging forces the operator to leave their forklift, which increases the risk of injury.

The risk of forklift. So what is the risk of a forklift?

According to the occupational safety and health administration (OSHA), a number of forklift accidents occur every year, with about 110,000 forklift accidents. In fact, according to the storage education and research council, a third of forklift drivers were injured when they got on and off the bus.

Do you know what it is to reduce the risk of forklift? We can take a look at that.

If you can’t do that, if you can’t do that, then you can take other measures, and other measures can also reduce the risk. Why can’t you do that? Automation cannot be maintained because of low volume or other factors.

Separating pedestrian and forklift traffic is one of the most basic risk reduction measures.

 

Does spring cleaning stretch wrap?

Does spring cleaning stretch wrap?

As you can see, spring is coming. Warmer weather, longer days, but also terrible allergies.

Do you know what’s needed for this new season? It also requires spring cleaning. Scrub the bathroom and the kitchen floor, sort out the closet, and donate something you don’t use anymore, and that’s all you need to do.

This is also a good time to clean up and restructure your warehouse and dock area. Checking machine maintenance is a great way to do it.

When checking your equipment, check your stretch wrapping paper. The main cause of downtime is lack of preventive maintenance, so this is a good opportunity to ensure that your machine is running smoothly.

For example, when it runs, you can listen to the sound of your stretching wrapper. If any squeaking or grinding sounds are heard, what you need to do is figure out why and fix it.

Any kind of tape will need to be checked by you — usually, the ones that drive the film delivery system, up and down, under the turntable, to make sure that they’re not frayed is your job. If changing the belt is something you need to do, you can call the manufacturer’s parts department. At the same time, a new shipment will be made. If it’s a good manufacturer, it will ship the parts the next day,

It’s important to carry out regular maintenance checks for your stretching pack. However, what you need to do is check to make sure that your stretcher wrapper can be effectively wrapped.

You have to know whether your load is safe or not, it’s not complicated. The concentration of it is in the control, this is the compression of the film, it’s accumulated on the load. The best defense against traffic damage is containment.

Knowing how much control your load requires is very important. And you need to make sure that there’s at least so much containment. If you don’t know how much control you need for your load, you can look for our recommendation chart.

Every year you need to check your machine, and by this step, the chances of an unexpected catastrophic maintenance problem are greatly reduced. The quality of your packaging needs to be checked, and the opportunities for your products can be increased. If so, it can achieve their purpose, and it can be done without any damage.

 

Manual Packaging

Trade, no horizontal.

But you should also know that simply replacing manual packaging with a machine is not a panacea. It can’t do everything. There are other problems, such as throughput, material consumption, load control, and so on. So consider the details of the technical solution is on the one hand, and on the other hand is that you need to ensure the safety of the machine itself, at the same time, reduce the risk of workplace accidents is our ultimate goal.

As we mentioned before, do you know what a typical loading dock looks like? In fact, it has a lot of activities the scene, for example, for example, it can sometimes be a little chaotic, sometimes horn, sometimes there will be open and close the door of the voice, forklift will be constantly moving back and forth, in the absence of any warnings, swinging back and forth in the corner of the situation. In all of these activities, a simple machine is easily overlooked, and some of the potentially harmful risks of pallet packaging are easily overlooked. But, you know, it’s a mistake.

Do you know what other security features of many semi-automatic stretch wrappers include? Generally speaking, it includes:

If the film is interrupted, you need to make an emergency stop between the mast and the distance of the car.

The series semi-automatic (turntable) film transmission system is hung on a loose strap. As we can see, if the film transmission system encountered an obstacle, such as the body part is a barrier, it would be relaxed. Relaxation is detected by a switch, and the drop in the film delivery system needs to be stopped to avoid loss.

It is very important to improve the security of the warehouse. You need to keep it firmly in mind.

When looking for suppliers, it is very important to select suppliers with sufficient experience to understand how to produce safely. The thing you need to do is find a machine that’s enough. At the same time, you need to anticipate potential problems when you see enough of them. Actually, you don’t have to worry about them… You can manage yourself. But it’s your job to make sure the supplier can do it.

 

 

 

 

When wrapping a tray, you need to use both hands.

When wrapping a tray, you need to use both hands. Do you know what that means? That means workers will have to lift the film. When they move backward during load, the steady pressure is applied. When they walk, they need to slowly bend over, because the lower part of the load is the ultimate goal. In fact, you can see that the scroll can be very heavy, which can be the same as any other heavy lifting. Do you know what it does? On the one hand, it can crush risks, from falling loads, and on the other hand, repetitive motion injury risks can be assumed.

However, we all know that the risk of injury does not end there. If you want to end the risk of injury, it’s not that simple. Workers also face a risk that is the risk of repetitive motion injuries, from the actions of the packaging itself, do you know how they keep the film and continue to bend and stretch? Do you know how they get to all levels of load?

In a circle, any time you walk backwards can be dangerous. That’s what our experience tells us. Workers may occur dizziness, of course, there are many causes of vertigo such as dizziness of circular motion can let them happen, and apparently a problem is they also don’t see where they are going. If an unsighted worker is busy at times, they are sometimes chaotic, so the risk of injury in a loading dock is greatly increased. This is also a bad thing.

You should know that manual packaging has many drawbacks and risks. For factory managers or process engineers, do you know what it means to look for less risk and improve the efficiency of loading dock? This means that this is obviously an easy place to be.
