Kelly System Eliminates Need for Runners
Client: Heinz Foods
Application: Production Line Testing
Result: Increased Production Line Efficiencies
Heinz needed to send samples from various production locations to a centralized lab for regular testing. Bottles were traditionally “plucked” by runners and taken by hand to the centralized lab in large containers.
Kelly Systems designed a carrier system that allowed operators to send the bottles directly off the line to the central lab for immediate testing. This saved valuable time in getting the bottles to the lab and virtually eliminated the incidence of running “bad” product as the time to test was drastically reduced.
