Case Study – Vacuum Sack Lifting Solution in Jotun Powder Coatings production plant, UAE
Jotun is one of the world’s leading paint and coating product manufacturer.
They were looking for an ergonomic lifting solution to lift 50 Kg bags from their storage area onto pallets on forklift. Jotun’s existing vacuum lifting solution from another European manufacturer was proving too hard for operators to lift due to the weight of the suction foot and accessories and they needed a suitable solution that would come in handy for their operators. The existing unit was non-functional since it was not being in use since a long time.
Modern Eastern installed the TAWI Vacuum Sack Lifting unit with a floor mounted jib crane after replacing the existing unit. We supplied Jotun with a demo unit for about a week so that the customer could be fully convinced about the advantages of the TAWI product when compared with the existing solution. Our service crew professionally dismantled the existing unit and replaced it with a brand new TAWI unit and even completed the necessary civil work for installation.
After the installation, the process required a single employee to lift the bags in less time, with less effort, and less risk. The new implemented system completely reduced load on worker’s back and in turn improved efficiency.
