A worthwhile investment done by a client in our material handling product for improving their factory ergonomics

Challenges

A very well known & esteemed organization which deals in food processing contacted Nandan with utmost urgency for their material handling woes. They were extremely worried about the condition of their existing scissor lifts which were procured by them from local manufacturers for their truck loading & unloading issues. 

These scissor lifts installed were extremely fragile, caused constant break downs & were a huge hindrance in the movement of materials from the factory premises to the trucks. They have 3 processing units & one big cold storage facility for delivering to their clients in India & export worldwide. They needed a sturdy & quick resolution & as always Nandan was more than happy to help a client in need!

Solution

After a careful audit was carried out, our sales engineer concluded that a scissor lift solution was the need of the hour. According to all the requirements & calculations done, a 3 Ton scissor lift with a max travel height of 1800mm was the solution given for all their loading & unloading of materials through BOPT(Battery operated pallet trucks) & HPT( Hand pallet trucks) onto the trucks & containers parked at the loading dock bay. The sturdiness & reliability of the lift were the stand out points for a very minimal maintenance schedule & in turn also reducing the dependency on manpower thus improving efficiency. 

Results

  • Increase in productivity by 40%
  • A quality & reliable product meant that there were no disruptions in material handling thus saving time & effort
  • Cost of after sales maintenance costs was non existent unlike the long list of issues the previous local made lifts attracted
