The plastic injection moulding process is a key process in various industrial sectors, with specific challenges in terms of access and space.
Air freight is therefore the ideal solution to ensure the timely delivery of raw materials and finished products
Singular Logistics, a company specialising in air freight solutions, offers a complete range of tailor-made services that are adapted to specific needs to optimise production and logistics processes in the plastic injection moulding industry.
Plastic injection moulding is a manufacturing process that is used in many industry sectors, including automotive, electronics, consumer goods and medical, etc.
One of the main challenges faced by companies that require plastic injection moulding at some point in their production chain is the availability of plant floor space. Plastic injection moulding equipment is large and requires a large amount of floor space to operate properly.
This floor space constraint makes it difficult to move conventional load transport vehicles, which makes it extra difficult to design and implement automation systems that optimise their speed and efficiency.
Air freight systems to optimise the plastic injection moulding process
Faced with this dilemma, the air transport of goods by electrovia is presented as the ideal solution for the plastic injection industries. It is a safe and efficient system, regardless of the space available in the plant or the size of the equipment necessary to carry it out.
The electrovia system is installed at a height of about 4 metres, freeing the production machines. This means that the movement of materials does not invade the production area. It is a fast and efficient goods transport system, which does not obstruct the floor space. In this way, products are moved from the storage area to the production area or vice versa in a matter of seconds, which reduces waiting time and increases productivity.
In addition, air transport is a safe and reliable system. Highly automated, it reduces the need for manpower, which reduces the risk of accidents and human error. Cargo arrives at its destination safely and in perfect condition.
Singular Logistics, intralogistics solutions for industrial companies
Singular Logistics, a leading company in the design, development and innovation of intralogistics solutions based on electrovia for various industrial sectors, has created a disruptive air freight system that multiplies the advantages of this type of solution, especially for plastic injection moulding.
Thanks to its revolutionary concept of transferring system intelligence to the trolleys, Singular Logistics’ solution offers a number of additional benefits such as increased safety, lower cost and higher return on investment. By equipping the trolleys with autonomous intelligence, they only need a mapping of the site, indicating loading and unloading points, to start operating.
This not only eliminates the costly and time-consuming process of programming, both in the initial phase and in subsequent modifications, but also greatly reduces the cost of the automation project by eliminating moving parts. Moving parts are the main source of breakdowns in this type of system, so the maintenance costs of the Singular Logistics system are lower than those of traditional systems.
The entire system operates at very low voltage, which increases safety and reduces certification and regulatory requirements.
In short, Singular Logistics’ air freight solution offers a number of significant advantages that make it the ideal partner for any industrial company looking to automate its plastic injection moulding processes.
