Installation of 2 traversing telescopic boom conveyors at VF Europe

Friday, December 19, 2014

VF Europe chose BEST Conveyors telescopic boom conveyors for their loose load handling process. These 2 telescopic boom conveyors are traversing in front of 4 dock doors and are being used for the inbound process.

The difficulty in this warehouse was to provide traversing telescopic boom conveyors that fitted between the warehouse pillars standing at 5 meters from the dock doors and still be able to deploy far enough (11,5 meters into the incoming trailers and containers) for an ideal unloading application. BEST Conveyors was the only manufacturer to respond to these needs. The hydraulic tilt system in combination with the man-rider platform on the front of these BestReach telescopic boom conveyors were a must for time saving loose load handling as well as ergonomic unloading. Unloading and palletising a high-cube 40 feet container within 25 minutes has here become a standard procedure!

If Chantelle's approach to workplace health had to be described, it would have to be "exemplary". For several years, the French lingerie manufacturer and distributor has been implementing a programme to prevent work-related musculoskeletal disorders on its logistics warehouses. To continue this approach, Chantelle has chosen to install a PowerFlex motorised flexible conveyor on its logistics platform in Villers-Bretonneux, Hauts-de-France.

Recently, 2 telescopic boom conveyors from FMH Conveyors have been installed at DHL in Beek (NL). The telescopic conveyors feed the sorter located at a higher level thanks to their specially developed belt transfer for this application. The operator platform at the front of the telescopic boom conveyors gives users the ability to process high-cube trailers with much diversified cargo much faster. As a result, the unloading time of the incoming trailers is extremely short. Within 45 minutes, the operators unload the whole high-cube trailer and take on another task in the distribution center.
