BA Vidro installs Talos Transport Simulator to reduce breakages

BA Vidro has installed the Talos Packaging Systems’ Transport Simulator

BA Vidro has installed the Talos Packaging Systems’ Transport Simulator on a trial basis at one of its plants.

The Transport Simulator, based on a 4-axes model that can simulate backwards, forwards, side/side and tilt movements, has been specifically designed to aid glass manufacturers in reducing costs and ensuring damage-free, environmentally sustainable delivery of glass products to their customers.

Using the Transport Simulator, BA Vidro will be able to look at the impact the transport has on the pallets first hand. This allows for the safe testing of products in adverse road conditions, as well as factory efficiency gain from knowing how to prevent failures before the product leaves the factory. The manufacturer will therefore be able to simulate its transport routes ahead of time, thus resulting in reduced breakages en route.

The Transport Simulator also means that BA can test the reliability of more environmentally friendly types of packaging for glass. By down-gauging the packaging used when delivering pallets of glass, a glass manufacturer can save on costs and reduce its carbon footprint along the manufacturing process.

The Transport Simulator will enable BA to test the reduced thickness foil, which in turn will allow them to reduce their costs and carbon footprint.
