Automatic Assembly Conveyor
The garment order assembly conveyers were created to solve one of the most complex problems facing cleaners and laundry businesses: identifying and ordering the customers garments before returning them. During the various treatment processes, garments are inevitably mixed together and processing times vary based on the garment fabric and type. A time consuming problem requires considerable manpower.
The garment order assembly conveyor is the ideal solution, chosen by more and more companies in the laundry, dry cleaning and manufacturing sector. The system identifies each garment and automatically reassembles orders, without even stopping.
Like all Metalprogetti systems the garment order assembly conveyors are versatile and modular, offering a variety of technical solutions based on the operational need and size of business.
Once the garment has been treated, they are loaded into a continuously moving conveyer and are held until other garments in the batch are ready. The operation is fast and random and the items are arranged based on the open slots available. The system automatically detects the arrival and precise location of the individual garments loaded onto the conveyor.
Various identification and marking systems can be used:
- Permanent bar code
- Pre-printed bar code
- Bar codes that can be printed as needed
When all of the garments in a client's order is ready and loaded onto the conveyor, the system automatically extracts them into a batch. Metalprogetti's automatic extraction device is the only one that selects moving garments, for considerable time-saving and operational advantages.
The system allows a number of unloading options:
- Directly feeds garments into the automatic bagging machine.
- Garments arranged in accumulation lines with spacers
- Binding of garments in each batch.
