Zaun is dedicated to improving our working practices wherever possible. With that in mind, we’re in a constant state of infrastructure investment to better allow ourselves to meet the ever-developing needs of our customers. The efficiency must be married with the health and safety of our workforce—a constant consideration with every choice we make.
To that end, we’re proud to announce our investment in a brand new Pfeifer three tonne wire coil grab.
What will the coil grabber do?
Our new wire coil grab will lift coils with safety and efficiency. Installed in the Zaun mesh manufacturing facility, our team is already beginning to see its benefits.
The wire coil grab allows vertical storage of wire, meaning there’s no longer any need to roll the coils. Another clear benefit is that it offers consistent weight and height between individually packed coils, making storage that much more efficient. We can plan with regularity how many coils will fit safely into a vertical stack without the need for chocks.
These stacked coils ultimately take up less space in our storage facility and allow us to bring even more uniformity to the manufacturing process. This is a part of our drive to drive up the already exceptional quality control we implement continually.
Why have we invested?
As specialists in the manufacturing of a range of mesh products, we must be confident in the storage and transportation of our wire coils. This is for many reasons, the first of which is health and safety. Tightly packet coils can present a considerable injury risk if not handled with appropriate equipment – our new coil grabber allows us to move coils with a significantly reduced risk.
The new coil grabber allows us to transport and store coils quickly and efficiently, which will enable us to make much better use of our available storage space. The quicker we can keep coils, the faster we will continue the overall manufacturing process. This, ultimately, leads to decreases in lead times and allows us to fulfil orders faster.
Investment is one thing and a significant one, but it’s of equal importance that the investment is made into machinery that will make a difference.
Making efficiency improvements is at the core of everything we do at Zaun; however, those improvements must never come at the cost of health and safety or overall quality control. Our investment in the three-tonne coil stack allows us to improve efficiency while also offering our clients the peace of mind that our impeccable quality standards remain.
More investments in the future
Our coil stacker is just one of many investments in infrastructure planned for Zaun. In the future, we’re committed to making sure we can improve our storage and manufacturing processes in any way possible. If we can make savings in time and efficiency without sacrificing quality, it allows us to improve the value proposition we offer our customers continually.
We have already delivered our coil stacker and are putting it to work, and the benefits are already beginning to manifest. This is just one of many vital investments Zaun intends to make going forward – so keep watching this space for more updates.
