Detergent manufacturer chooses a cost-effective electric tug from MasterMover
Two MasterMover SM100+ electric tugs have played a key role in helping a well-known detergent manufacturer to introduce a new bin system to their manufacturing plant.
The 300-litre bins are made of stainless steel, for use in clean room environments.
The manufacturer wanted a safe and efficient way to move the bins across the site from the production area to the waste and recycling centre. Previously, the loads had been moved using large trays carried by hand but the manufacturer wanted a scalable bin solution which allowed the load to be wheeled around the facility. To optimise this process even further, our customer looked at MasterMover’s SM100+ for the swift, controlled handling of wheeled bins.
However, connecting to the bins using stainless steel adaptors would have been expensive because of the large number of bins that would have needed modifying. Instead, MasterMover provided a universal connection that works by clamping on to the front wheels of the trolley.
This saved the customer from a large-scale modification and allows the SmartMover to be used on any of the bins in the facility.
Richard Salt, MasterMover UK Technical Sales Engineer, said: “It would have been expensive to add stainless steel adaptors to each bin. However, introducing the two MasterMover SM100+ machines has solved that issue. Instead, the electric tugs’ coupling systems grab the front wheels and move the bins around, removing the need for adaptors.”
MasterMover supplies machines for large-scale manufacturing plants and product development laboratories throughout the world. Our tugs are also available in stainless steel to ensure compliance with clean room standards.
