The company is proud of the long-term alliances it enjoys with customers and the work it undertakes on behalf of some of the world’s leading brands. This is only made possible by continually delivering results, on budget and on time, and providing customers with the peace of mind that from concept to commissioning and beyond; the CKF engineering team is always on hand.
When we approached CKF for an automation solution we were convinced we needed a Robotic arm palletising solution. When CKF visited our site they did a full assessment and worked with us to get a proper understanding of what we were trying to achieve.
With this evidence they proposed two solutions, the first, a Robotic arm solution, which would work but took up a vast amount of floor space. The second option involved a much simpler and easily maintained layer palletiser solution which opened-up the majority of our floor space and much better utilised the area available. CKF discussed all the pros and cons of both systems equally and it helped us understand that the layer palletiser solution not only provided better utilisation of our space, it also allowed for future development of our process at very little cost. It also meant that during our low periods we would not have as much capital equipment under-utilised.
The level of engineering CKF put into the proposals stage of the process helped us to make educated decisions and select the correct solution. CKF ensured that any concerns we had were physically tested to reassure us – they even sent engineers to the Netherlands to trial and demonstrate the capability of their suggested equipment using our products.
It was the unbiased engineering support and advice given throughout the process, along with their proven track record in palletising that meant CKF stood head and shoulders above the competition and we had no hesitation in awarding the job to CKF.
We were delighted with the palletising system that CKF Systems installed for us. Automating this part of our plant has simplified our processes and also increased safety for our workforce. This is the first step on our automation journey and we were really impressed with the training and support our team received from CKF which ensured that the whole implementation process ran really smoothly
CKF supplied a complete case handling and multi-palletising system for a green field new factory build. Their approach was professional and competent at every stage of the project, succeeding in providing a flexible highly automated solution. This included incorporation of 3rd party equipment, which CKF managed as a complete package of works.Chris Manning
We are really impressed with the solution your company have provided. Please pass on my personal thanks for a job very well done to all of the team at CKF concerned with making this happen within such a short time-frame. To date, it’s been a joy to work with CKF on this very important project to Magna!!! Thanks once again!David Hobday
