Improve Machine Guarding Without Investing in a Complete Redesign

Posted by Bill Sullivan on Jun 8, 2017 12:51:20 PM

Is there a section in your facility that just constantly seems to generate problems? Or maybe it's a certain product in the warehouse that your maintenance team continuously needs to repair? When there's a consistent issue facing your facility, a facility manager's first instinct is to implement a solution to put a stop to it. But if the problem is larger than one off-the-shelf product can fix, in lieu of a complete redesign for that area of your facility, it's often tempting to have your team spin up a customized machine guarding solution and figure out a way to make it work.

But as with most quick fixes, in the long run it's best to get something done correctly from the get-go. Now, that doesn't have to mean complete redesign, but you should create a solution that's meant for asset protection, not one that's pieced together.

It's where shoppers maintain the highest expectations for an attractive store environment while they distractedly propel their own carts into every exposed surface.

Say Goodbye to Maintenance Costs: The Value of Bumper

Posted by Kate Newman on Sep 4, 2014 10:39:00 AM

  Have you been left feeling penniless by maintenance costs associated with damages on your refrigeration cases, fixtures and checkout stations? Before any work begins, it costs you $200 for a repair team to simply walk through the door. Unfortunately, this scenario happens far too many times a year and becomes a black hole in your budget. Maintenance dollars add up quickly—and you begin to daydream of all the ways you could better allocate that money.

Well, stop dreaming. Typically, bumper adds only about 1% to the initial purchase price of your fixture, casing or checkout. That small investment is proven to save store managers hundreds, sometimes thousands per year in maintenance costs.
