Lifting 7200kg of boxes every day, effortlessly

Ergonomics, Vacuum lifter

Using ergonomic lifting equipment

Rockwool, world leading supplier of stone wool products and insulation systems, have invested in several ergonomic lift solutions from TAWI. At their production site in Belgium, vacuum lifters and lifting trolleys are used on a daily basis to lift and transport various goods and they have become an every day part of the production. By investing in TAWI lifting equipment, Rockwool wanted to make the workflow simple and more ergonomic for their employees.

Lifting 7200kg of boxes every day, effortlessly

Lifting boxes weighing between 20-30 kg and stacking them on pallets was done by hand up until a few years ago. One pallet can contain up to 72 boxes, each box weighing around 25 kg, equalling a total weight of around 1800 kg per pallet. One employee fills at least four pallets per shift, lifting a total of 7200 kg. Using TAWI ergonomic lifting equipment, these weights can be handled in a time efficient way and without putting any excessive strain on the workers bodies.

Improved employee well-being

Since the installation of lifters, they have been used on every shift, on a daily basis. The production workers have found an increase in productivity, since they can now maintain the same work speed all day, without being overworked. Danny Flass, production site supervisor, is convinced that the investment in TAWI lifting equipment can be measured quickly due to the clear health benefits for the employees.
