Leading snack food company Liwayway has placed an order with Interroll for a modular conveyor platform (MCP) system and three pallet flow system. The company is looking to upgrade its plant in the Qingpu District of Shanghai. Interroll says their new MCP system will undertake the conveying of carton boxes from labeling, sealing and up to pre-stacking, with a throughput of up to 3,000 pcs/hr; a rate that breaks the bottleneck that Liwayway was experiencing beforehand.
Interroll says the main element of this new platform is a fully modular system that incorporates various key elements of conveying systems and it can be assembled to form a complete material flow solution fit to customer specific needs. Depending on the application requirements, the conveyor modules can be equipped with various drive systems and be combined with one another and adheres to their consistent open concept. This facilitates the ability for a customer to upgrade and transform their existing systems. It is also the decisive reason Liwayway chose Interroll MCP, because their own engineering team are able to design and change the delivery process according to the real-time changing demands.
“We are grateful to Liwayway’s trust in us. Interroll couldn’t have made such great progress in China and in Asia without the trust and support of our customers. As a leading supplier of internal logistics, Interroll is committed to providing the Chinese market with better and more forward-looking products. We care not only about our customers’ today but also about their future,” said Dr. Ben Xia, Executive Vice President of Interroll Group, Head of Operations Asia. “The new modular conveyor platform is a very good example. The modular concept allows our customers to modify their conveyor systems at any time according to new market demands. Quick response to changing demands is the key to winning the future.”
“It has been a very successful experience to work with Interroll. Interroll’s FIFO dynamic storage system can not only ensure fast, energy-efficient inventory turnover, but also ensures that the first produced products are delivered first. This is extremely important in the food industry, and also the main reason why Liwayway chose Interroll.” commented Mr. Shi Xuezhi, Executive Vice Chairman of Liwayway (China) Co., Ltd. “Interroll is very innovative. The new modular conveyor platform is the most important product launch in the 57-year history of Interroll. Thanks to their support, our engineering team can successfully plan and design this conveyor system. We are looking forward to the MCP running and solving our pressing delivery issue eventually.”
