In this project, the end-user manufacturers hydraulic lifts for automotive repairs. Lauyans EPS was tasked with making the final product easier and quicker to ship. This cuts significant costs from the process.

The manufacturer came up with the idea to mount the uprights, cylinders, and other lift components in steel frames for shipment. Once bolted into the frames, the load is stretched-wrapped securely. The wrapping process is automated.

W.M. Kelley Engineering designed a packaging cell that conveys the lift components once the load has been bolted into end frames. The system then pauses the load for wrapping with a horizontal stretch-wrap machine. The conveyor first retracts to clear the way for the stretch-wrapper. Once the load is securely wrapped, the conveyor extends to convey the load to the shipping pickup point. The design allows multiple loads to be queued.

Look at the system in the pictures and video. Lauyans EPS produced a system that met our customer’s vision. And their needs.
