The clients newest Orion overhead stretch wrapper has 14 feet of gravity exit conveyor at the end of the wrapping station.
The problem: Pallets have been hanging up in this area and not transferring to the end of the exit conveyor where fork truck drivers can pick them up. Consequently, the Fork truck drivers have to get off the truck to manually push pallets to the end of the conveyor line. These double stacked pallets can be more than 100″ tall and weigh 3,000 to 4,000 lbs.
