Storage technology that flows

In close cooperation with a European provider of intralogistics, bekuplast created a tray for the distribution warehouse of a well-known British retailer.

The tray, which has been specially developed for the company’s warehouse technology, is used for transporting/pre-distribution of a variety on food and non-food products. Until the end of this year, 160,000 trays will be in use at the retailer’s newly built distribution-center. Goods are transported at high speed and unloaded on conveyor belt lanes using the bekuplast’s high-performance tray. Made from PP, the tray with the basic dimensions 705 x 505 mm is used in combination with a lifting plate. Its features an inmould-label on all four sides and is constructed in such a way that it runs particularly quietly on conveyor lanes. The tray is lowered so that goods can be taken off manually or automatically. The lifting plate is securely held at the height of the conveyor system in order to slide products, weighing 100 – 4,200 grams, from the lifting plate. This is done with the help of pins which are pushed through openings in the base of the tray. After unloading, the tray is lifted again and conveyed onwards.
