The strapping machine, with a smart robot arm, makes strapping pallets a breeze, and since the machine found its way into the warehouses at Vingen in Lunderskov, Rafael Kropp Wojtczak and his colleagues have strapped well over 3,000 pallets.
In his capacity as Team Leader for Supply Chain Solution, he is particularly pleased that the new automatic strapping machine has provided the employees at BSB Industry with an improved working environment.
- Previously we used a manual strapping machine. It required us to crawl around on the floor to get the tape around the pallet. Two belts must be strapped around each pallet, and this means that with the new machine we have already eliminated 6,000 manual, repetitive work steps with poor working postures, which often resulted in pain in the knees and the back. This is great for our working environment, says Rafael Kropp Wojtczak.
