Guiderail Change-over Solution
A leading manufacturer of pool and spa chemicals processes a variety of bottled products. These bottles vary greatly in size and shape requiring frequent guide rail changes. Using its existing guide rail system, these changes are difficult, time consuming and often result in errors, leading to production losses. Additionally, the manufacturer does not have the resources to retrofit the existing guide rails to another option.
A Perceptiv™ intelligence team of industry specialists from Regal® visited the customer and evaluated the problem areas. The customer was then presented with a solution package consisting of System Plast® Nolu®-S guide rails, SpeedSet® brackets and a turn-key installation service option provided by Perceptiv intelligence.
SpeedSet brackets have greatly reduced the time required to change lane widths. In addition, the changes are less prone to error, resulting in increased production and greatly reduced downtime costs. Due to the turn-key and on-time installation, production was able to continue on schedule after the installation. This customer has asked Regal to come back for more projects.
