PRONOMIC: Squeeze & Turn

The Challenge

Our client was experiencing a high turnover of staff due to employees not being able to carry out their work because of strenuous tasks that were causing injuries. The manual handling of certain heavy items was causing delays and frustration, often needing two staff to complete the task, which meant waiting for someone to become available.

For example, tasks such as carrying heavy reels of plastic film to the production line were pushed to the side as it was difficult for the average worker to manually transport the 75kg reels.

Another issue our client was facing was that reels were often dropped and damaged. This was a large cost for the business in terms of wasted resources.

We were determined to help our client overcome their handling challenges and allow the business to thrive efficiently.

The Solution

Following a site visit and a number of consultations, our expert sales team worked with the Health and Safety Manager to conclude that our lightweight Pronomic lifting trolleys would be the most effective way of becoming more efficient in their packaging processes.

The Squeeze & Turn lifting trolley, in particular, would be the best solution to the plastic film handling difficulties. The Pronomic Squeeze & Turn can carry loads of up to 110kg, meaning that strenuous activities become a straightforward, one-person task.

The Benefits

  • Rubber grips for a secure grip of the plastic film reel: no drops or damage.
  • A lightweight and manoeuvrable trolley frame, even in restricted environments.
  • Improved safety and efficiency within the business.
  • A built-in squeeze overload protection to prevent product damage.
