Early in 2012 Blackstar Handling Systems supplied a material handling system to The Box Shop based in East Kilbride to transport finished product through the Strapper and Wrapper and into the warehouse for delivery to the customer.
The Box Shop is Scotland’s largest independent manufacturer of cardboard boxes and supplies a comprehensive range of packaging solutions to a wide range of industrial sectors.
The project proved successful and when The Box Shop decided to expand their business they approached Blackstar Handling Systems to provide an efficient and cost effective new Finished Goods System
As part of a major investment programme, The Box Shop had purchased the factory adjacent to their present premises which has been customised it to suit the needs of the Box Shop business and where the new finished goods system would be installed.
As a result of the discussions, Blackstar Handling Systems received a second order for a pallet handling system for the new factory including the supply of the new Strapper and Stretch Wrapper.
Blackstar Handling Systems pallet handling equipment will transport completed work from the case-makers through the Strapper and Stretch Wrapper and out for dispatch.
Blackstar Handling Systems supplied a P90 twin lance compression Strapper and RA300 Radial Arm Stretch Wrapper.
The full system was completed and commissioned on time and to coincide with the start-up of the new case-makers.
Both Blackstar Handling Systems Engineers and The Box Shop operators were trained in the operation of the new Strapping and Wrapping system.
All Blackstar Handling Systems supplied equipment is fully modular using quality propriety parts from suppliers such as- SEW, Nord, SICK, RHP, Siemens, Allen Bradley and Telemechaneque.
