ECO WATER COOLING SYSTEM
"Thermoforms new Eco Water Cooling System equates to a huge 65% reduction in energy consuption for this process per year"
Matthew Perks, Managing Director, Thermoform
Thermoform has had the pleasure of working with an innovative company - 'Surfaceskins'. Together we have helped Surafecskins create a solution to antibacterial door pushpads. We have designed a bracket to hold these push pads on doors & pullhandles. These are designed to hold Surfaceskins pads, which kill deposited germs in SECONDS, via secretion of an alcohol gel, to achieve self-disinfection, thus protecting every door user, whilst complementing existing gel dispensers & hand cleaning.
Thermoform Investing in New Technology - Robot Stacker
As part of our continual improvement process, we at Thermoform took the decision to invest in a robot for stacking and for the last two years have worked alongside a partner on its development. With the completion of the project taking place earlier this year, it has not stopped since.
As a bespoke manufacturer of packaging not all our products are conventional shapes. In order to provide our customers with easily denestable irregular shaped products we decided to replace the conventional upward stacker in one of our larger FCS thermoforming machines with a robot. With the robot being capable of stacking these complex products at speed in just about any denesting configuration imaginable.
Since the robot installation we have seen a reduction in manufacturing waste, as well as an improvement in our machine change over time. A longer term benefit will be the reduction in storage requirements for dedicated stacker tooling. However, above all else it has improved the workplace for our workforce as they now handle fewer stacks and work at ground level.
