Jonesboro, AR -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/10/2015 -- An energy-efficient conveyor system from Hytrol Conveyor Company and integration partner, Bastian Solutions helped Monoprice increase throughput from 4,000 orders to nearly 14,000 orders per day. Bastian Solutions was chosen as the Monoprice integration solutions provider and implemented a system comprised almost exclusively of 24-volt DC zero-pressure accumulation (ZPA) conveyor, manufactured by Hytrol Conveyor Company. To keep up with strong consumer demand, Monoprice needed an automated material handling system to help increase daily throughput from roughly 300 orders per hour up to 1,000 orders per hour.
