Kevin Mauger started working for the parent company of Glide-Line the day after college and bought the company 12 years into his career when it was at an all-time low. The company has multiplied in volume 5X since and is growing at 20%+ year over year. Personally, his entire life is based upon spending time with his family, figuring out a way to get out deep sea fishing, and supporting his Philadelphia Eagles. His vision for Glide-Line is to make it the world’s most flexible multi-strand conveyor solution with tools for customers allowing instantaneous response and control of their own destiny along with the fastest deliveries in the industry.

Adaptable Conveyor Solutions: Handling Totes and Trays Directly on the Line

on Thursday, November 30, 2023 By | Kevin Mauger | 0 Comments | Educational Resources
When handling totes and trays, the application often calls for a combination of manual and automated assembly processes taking place at different stages of the production line. Manufacturing complex products like automotive components or medical devices could have multiple stages that require interfaces with feeding systems, controlled stops for operator interactions, smooth starts that prevent product damage, and seamless transitions between production stages. Thankfully, there’s a better way - and it solves all the challenges above, including cost concerns. In this ebook, we’ll walk you through our solutions for specific applications that are uniquely-shaped, “prohibitively” large and wide (according to our competitors), and that often pose problems for automation because they require gentle handling.

These systems allow for the buffering of products either directly on the line or using workpiece pallets while moving items between process stages. Traditional power-and-free accumulation strategies are common in the packaging industry, but these approaches don’t translate well when working with assembly products that require a gentler method of movement or transfer.
