Picon Robinetterie (Picon Taps), a supplier of industrial equipment and a specialist in taps, has a vast workshop dedicated to the assembly of valves and taps. As soon as a module is assembled in this workshop, the assembler places it in a wooden box close to the workstation and thus frees up space for another product.
It was identified that the overhead gantries and jib cranes present on the site are mainly used for product assembly and are therefore slightly available for packaging operations.
The ADEI solution
Thanks to a mobile aluminium gantry crane installation on the assembly station, the operator is able to crate the products without delay and in complete autonomy, without loading to much the overhead gantries which remain shared between the different workstations.
Specificities of the delivered gantry crane:
- 1000 Kg load capacity
- Aluminium hollow rail with hoist trolley
- Electric hoist with a supply line on a sconce
- 4 polyurethane swivel wheels
A word from the customer
The lightweight and mobility of the aluminium gantry crane ensures an easier packing operation. It is actually practical, manoeuvrable and the hoist is very convenient to use. We do not regret our investment!
