Automated logistics distribution maintenance

Application – Distribution and Logistics

Key Problems

Warehouse logistics, sortation and material handling systems require planned and reactive maintenance programs, often in elevated areas.

The movement of goods in a distribution or manufacturing operation requires sophisticated automation systems. The higher the volume of movement, the greater level of complexity required.

Material flow solutions, using pallet or case conveyors, AGVs and monorails are a highly effective means of moving goods between work areas.  They offer real-time tracking of goods and added value tasks such as wrapping, weighing and sorting goods.

Maintenance is key to an efficient process; many areas are awkward and therefore difficult to reach, each task being different from the last. However, working at height must be accomplished safely, and traditionally outsourced scaffolding companies and fixed aluminium tower systems have been deployed.

However, outsourced scaffolding labour is expensive and unavailable 24/7, and aluminium frame systems are cumbersome, inflexible, difficult to transport and will not adjust to fit into awkward areas.

The Solution

Using a LOBO System solution can dramatically improve logistics system operation by reducing scaffolding labour costs, improving service levels, increasing operator productivity, and adding site optimisation.

The LOBO System can be assembled quickly, easily and safely around, through or above conveyors and restricted access areas – by in-house maintenance crews.

Outsourced scaffolding labour costs can be reduced without compromising safety. Areas previously considered difficult to get to can now be easily accessed for maintenance and cleaning purposes. In addition, it is available 24/7, therefore, putting you in control of what and when you schedule your maintenance tasks.

Customers can see the DIY benefit of self-assembly while retaining the option to reconfigure if necessary. In addition, LOBO Systems steel components have been load tested using a 4-to-1 ratio to ensure it complies with all relevant global regulations. 

Product Benefits

LOBO is scalable, adaptable and adjustable to meet your ongoing and changing requirements. Add more components or alter your existing configuration to satisfy the demands of the next task. Protect your initial investment with a product that will safely meet all your access needs.

LOBO is a rigid and stable product which meets or exceeds current safety regulations. Guardrails can be fitted in seconds at any point in the erection process.

LOBO’s steel structure ensures many years of product life cycle and a system that will not shake or rattle. The system includes a slider lifting beam kit and a Towerstore storage unit.

LOBO’s modular approach means components are fully integrated and can be hand-carried. Entirely constructed systems can also be made mobile by the addition of wheels.

Cost Benefits

Experience shows that deploying the LOBO system reduces the costs associated with hiring scaffolding and constructing bespoke access systems. By reducing your reliance on outsourced scaffolding and engineering companies, cost savings will be achieved – easily in 12 months.

With this quantifiable cost reduction comes the added savings associated with reduced downtime and greater productivity from your maintenance department. 

 

Available 24×7, quick to erect – and above all safe – it is immediately adjustable for your next job with no staff waiting time while new fixed-frame structures are built.

 Re-configurable, again and again, this product comes with no disposal costs and minimal replacement and ongoing training costs.
