Reduce your labor & plastic "stretch wrap" costs
With all the work that you do with each pallet load in your facility, it makes sense to rely on a pallet load stabilizer that is… Strong – Reusable – Cost Effective. Stop scrapping plastic stretch wrap!

Why apply plastic wrapping material to a pallet when there is a far more user and environmentally friendly pallet securing solution available from Aero Rubber Company?


 


Practical, efficient and space-saving packaging technology

By using the highly efficient and compact BEUMER stretch hood® A from the high-capacity BEUMER stretch hood® packaging system model range. It impresses with improved system performance, ergonomic operation and a space-saving format.

This is BEUMER's new response to the increasing demand for machine safety and economic efficiency in the packaging industry.

 


Albertsons palletizes with KUKA robots

Albertsons, a large US-based grocery chain, was in need of a new solution for their cold packaging operation, and had very specific requirements to ensure it met the high quality and cleanliness demands of the grocery industry.

They searched the market, and only KUKA offered a robot that met their speed, payload, flexibility, and footprint.

E24™ 24-Volt Conveying System
Hytrol's E24™ sets the standard by delivering a powerful, long-lasting, low-voltage means for product transportation.
The 24-volt motor driven roller (MDR) conveyor systems are being widely used due to their simplicity and flexibility. Since the drive train is distributed along the conveyor length, a single piece of equipment can perform multiple functions. This includes different speeds, multiple directions and starting/stopping individual sections. Because E24™ is a Hytrol innovation, it also works great with EZLogic® zero-pressure accumulation systems. Hytrol’s E24™ has been designed from the ground up to provide the best 24-volt conveyor drive technology in existence.
