Searching for a solution – material handling equipment in the food industry
Reducing manual handling in food processing isn’t an easy task. Companies have traditional options available such as pallet trucks or sack lifters to aid in easing the strain of lifting operations, but pushing and pulling loads is a different matter and one where the options available to manufacturers are limited.
For the movement of carcasses on overhead rails, automated or mechanised line systems are available, but these can be both costly and inflexible.
On the other hand, the design and volume of storage totes and Eurobins within food manufacturing environments can make finding a universal electric tug solution difficult.
Sicarev needed a supplier with engineering expertise to support them in assessing potential options that could remove manual handling in the movement of carcasses and heavy-wheeled storage bins.
Their requirements led them to contact our Technical Team at MasterMover. With an expansive range of proven electric tug solutions, and 25 years of custom engineering experience, we were familiar with the challenges Sicarev was looking to solve. Our problem-solving approach to material handling solutions has enabled us to support some of the world’s largest food producers alleviate manual handling and improve production efficiency.
