If your business involves manufacturing, warehousing or distribution, materials handling is something you probably live and breathe every day. The smooth running of any warehouse or factory operation depends on raw, component and finished materials being processed efficiently and safely and getting this right can help a business gain a real competitive advantage.

We live in a 24-hour economy and intrinsic to a successful ‘always-on’ operation is an efficient process supported by the right equipment. Materials handling equipment comes in many varieties; from hand-operated units through to specialised motorised systems for handling drums, reels, packages and glass. The right handling equipment, positioned correctly in a process workflow, can save a business time, increase productivity and maintain health and safety.

Packline Materials Handling has been designing and manufacturing lifting and handling equipment since 1993 from its headquarters in Poole, UK. The company’s ‘Compac’ range of stainless-steel roll, reel and drum handling equipment is ideally suited to clean room environments and Packline has established itself as the leading supplier of materials handling equipment to the food, drinks, dairy, pharmaceutical and medical processing industries. The company has earned an enviable reputation around the world for developing custom materials handling solutions that enable Packline customers to improve productivity and enjoy a real competitive advantage.

Packline initially contacted Parvalux during 2006 seeking a new drive system partner. To meet the performance specification needed in Packline’s product range, a number of modifications were made to the Parvalux PM50- 63 DC motor and GB4 gearbox combination and a sample was built and sent to Packline for testing and evaluation by their development team. This combination has proven to be highly successful, underlining the capability and reliability of the Parvalux drive unit and it remains specified by Packline to this day.

Packline’s Managing Director, Paul Winter, says; “We’ve worked with Parvalux for a number of years now and they are a partner we trust. They take the time to understand what we’re trying to achieve and have developed excellent drive solutions that enhance the ‘reliability comes as standard’ message every Packline customer has come to expect from our brand.”
