“Over the last eight or nine years, Bostik has seen about a 200% increase in sales. That level of growth is great for business, but it was putting a lot of stress on our operators. We needed to keep up with demand, so automating became a top priority.
Aurora installed a Fuji Robotic Palletizer & valve bag filler for us, and from the initial concept through to execution, they were great to deal with. Their timing and scheduling was spot on, and the overall design and execution of the tech is top notch.
It’s still early days, but we can already tell automating our process is going to have a big impact on our business. We’ll see a reduction in costs on man-power as our new Fuji Robotic Palletizer does the work of about one-and-a-half people and a huge reduction in the risk of injuries.
With a manual process, it was hard to know many units would be stacked each day. Now that we’ve automated, we know exact numbers.
Consistency is also a big one for us. When we were packing manually, the shift might start with about five units stacked per minute – but by the end of the day, that’d be down to two. Now, we know exactly how many units will be stacked each day.
From a productivity, consistency, and health and safety perspective, the shift towards automation is a massive game-changer.”
