In my last blog I spoke of the horrors of delayed shipments and damaged products as the early part of the “peak” season had just begun. Now the leaves have left their high perch for their final resting place on the cold November ground with Thanksgiving soon to arrive. Those of us in the Northern hemisphere have started our yearly swap out of light jackets for heavier ones which coincides with our yearly quest to find “that other glove” before winter’s cold sets in. “That other glove” likely resides with that “other sock” somewhere in the metaverse snickering at us in unison. Will AR goggles help us find them? Perhaps.
Thanksgiving is a holiday that gives us a short respite to reflect and give thanks for the many blessings in our lives. This year, operators of parcel logistic and warehousing centers that have been treated to a sneak peek of the newest solution from Flexco at recent tradeshows are thankful that the arrival of Flexco’s new Roller Conveyor Transfer Plate (RCTP) is drawing near.
And why wouldn’t they be? It’s an early holiday present for operations that utilize powered roller conveyors to transport packages, totes, polybags, and the like. A well-thought-out solution guaranteed to bring joy to Safety, Operations, and Maintenance Managers everywhere.
Flexco’s RCTP is an easy-to-install product designed to fill the gaps between rollers. With a simple snap, the segments are installed, and the protection of workers, product, and the conveyor immediately begins. Designed with a proprietary, low-friction polymer, the installed RCTP is easy on the conveyor rollers and drive mechanism, while it simultaneously creates a seal against the rollers, improving worker safety, facility output, and conveyor-related maintenance events.
Continue giving thanks for the many good things in your life and keep a watchful eye out for the arrival of Flexco’s Roller Conveyor Transfer Plates.
A wonderful Holiday gift is on its way! You’re going to love it.
