Jonesboro, AR -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/14/2016 -- Hytrol and integration partner, McCombs-Wall, worked with LD Products to create an energy-efficient automated material handling system capable of growing with the company. While meeting all of the standards to qualify for LEED-certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), the new system allows for future expansion, including increased capacity, accuracy, and speed.
The system is comprised of many energy efficient and unique applications of Hytrol technology. A key component of the system is the use of Hytrol's E24 24-volt technology, which is used to transport totes and shipping cartons from an A-frame system to one of several areas, including the consolidation put-to-light system, manual small package area, and the USPS packing area.
By working with McCombs-Wall (http://www.mccombs-wall.com), LD Products was able to implement a material handling solution that accommodated an increase in throughput, as well as their unique variety of SKUs. The intelligently-designed system allowed LD Products to reduce their workforce by 53%. In addition to the technical benefits, the company was able to utilize Hytrol's wide variety of training opportunities to provide the necessary support for the system.
