With inventory management, how can you label a pallet so that your forklift operator spends the maximum amount of time moving pallets and not wasting time (and incurring potential work-related injuy) by exiting and re-entering the forklift? Simple – by installing a Panther Industries print-and-apply system.
Many processing plants produce various bagged items (e.g., concrete mix, fertilizer, etc.) or bulk food materials (pet food, rice, beans, etc.). These bags are then loaded onto a pallet, stretch-filmed. After the pallet exits the stretch film process, it is driven to the end of a conveyor where a forklift operator is required to exit the forklift to hand apply a label, then re-enter the forklift to pick up the pallet and move it to the correct inventory location. This process and manual application effort costs your operations valuable time, and presents an unnecessary safety risk every time the operator exits and re-enters the equipment.
The efficiency and process improvement utilizing our labeling automation systems allows a single forklift operator to work with product from multiple lines and not exit the vehicle. This significantly increases the number of pallets that can be moved in a given shift and provides improved safety for your forklift operators.
For pallets or cartons traveling along a conveyor, our labeling automation systems reach over the line far enough to apply a label to the item as it is in motion. We also compensate for varying pallet positions, both horizontally or vertically, depending on where the label needs to be placed.
