Xaar is the leading independent supplier of industrial inkjet print heads offering the widest product range to deliver industrial strength inkjet performance.  Xaar has extensive experience in providing its customers with the flexibility and choice required to address a diversity of applications.

At its innovative manufacturing facility in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, Xaar had a material handling concern which needed resolving on a short timescale in order to free up space in its existing production line.  

The company experienced a huge increase in demand for inkjet heads and as a result required additional capacity on its existing production line as well as create a central warehouse function and inspection facility.

This increase in production would create a greater increase in stock levels which all required lifting from ground level onto the mezzanine floor.  

Advanced Handling was approached to provide a solution which would enable large quantities of stock to be moved efficiently and comply with all health and safety regulations.

Advanced Handling's design team worked with Graham West at Xaar to supply a Mezzanine Floor Lift with a capacity of 300kg and a lifting height of 3000mm.  The equipment supplied achieved the requirements and was delivered within a tight timescale.  

"Advanced Handling displayed a genuine care aspect and a real interest in meeting our objectives.  I had a great sense of re-assurance knowing that Advanced Handling had the confidence and experience to exceed our expectations and most importantly would not let us down," explained Graham West.
