How a box manufacturer tackled labor issues by automating palletizing tasks
Alliora specializes in creating and manufacturing high-end packaging. Being a seasonal business, they hire many temporary workers when orders come in. They needed a way to stabilize production so they could reduce the number of temporary workers and help their core group of employees with strenuous stacking tasks.
After a few hours of research, they contacted Sterkelec, a Robotiq local partner. Together they targeted the end-of-line and implemented the AX Series Palletizing Solution from Robotiq. Employees are grateful, and the production line is now flowing better.
