Optimize stacking quality
How much damage do you suffer due to poorly stacked pallets or roll containers? Every time a forklift truck or truck slows down, the load threatens to move. If the stacking on the pallet or roll container is not stable, boxes can slide, fall or collapse. As a result, customer complaints about damaged and therefore unusable or unsaleable products.
In April 2014, the European Union issued guidelines for securing cargo in lorries for safety reasons. The load must not shift at any time, even in the event of an emergency stop or driving away on a slope.
IPS guarantees stable and safe stacking patterns with a minimal chance of sliding or falling loads. A stable and safe pallet or roll container means that:
- products do not collapse by taking into account the weight of products and the strength of packaging.
- piles do not fall over by including instructions for spacing and use of interlayers or slip sheets in stacking instructions.
- do not overflow pallets so that excellent products do not cause disturbances elsewhere in the process.
IPS translates the stacking pattern directly into clear stacking instructions. As a result, there can be no misunderstanding about the way in which order pickers must place their products. IPS offers the best guarantee on stable and safe load carriers that help prevent accidents and product damage.
- European guidelines emphasize that cargo must not shift
- For a stable pallet, products must not collapse, fall or overflow
- IPS realizes safe load carriers through visual stacking instructions
- Safer pallets
- Less product damage
- Fewer disruptions
Why choose IPS?
Crucial in automated order picking or packaging processes is the question of how products should be stacked on the load carrier or in the box. IPS has the answer. The tool calculates how to optimally position the products and gives instructions to the system, whether it is a robot, palletizer, packaging machine or manual stacking station.
A choice for IPS is more than a choice for an IT system. You choose an optimization process that can intervene in many processes in the warehouse. Each process therefore starts with a situation description and a problem analysis, which makes clear on which points IPS can improve. This is followed by a feasibility study, supplemented with simulations and demonstrations to further elaborate the application possibilities.
IPS is not a stand-alone tool, but an add-on. This means that the tool must be integrated with the system that controls the operation in your warehouse. This can be a warehouse management system (WMS), but also an ERP system or a self-developed system. By using web services, we can easily integrate IPS with every system.
