Our Package And Material Handling Automation

Whether it’s repetitive packaging or monotonous material handling, if your production process has a dull, repetitive task, it may be acting as a bottleneck to your throughput. That’s where Cross Automation comes in.

Our material and package handling automation can put an end to labor-intensive, monotonous tasks in your production. You shouldn’t have to risk production stoppage or increased margins of error due to tasks like these. They can be automated efficiently and effectively while being integrated into your existing processes.

As the manufacturing industry moves more and more in the direction of automation, these repetitive tasks are often the first things looked at when analyzing efficiency. Maximize your efficiency with turnkey automation solutions.

From consistency to reduced risk of downtime, there are a number of reasons to utilize an automated solution in your material removal process. Cross Automation can provide the solution your operation needs.

Cross palletizing solutions aim to eliminate workers from doing repetitive bending and lifting tasks that can lead to workplace injuries. This allows workers to be more efficiently utilized for more mission-critical tasks while reducing the risk of ergonomic injury.

Customizable Automation Solutions

You may be looking to overhaul your entire production process. Or, you may be looking to eliminate that one task that slows everything down. Or maybe you’re somewhere in between.

If you have automation needs, we’d love to talk to you about them. We work with our customers from concept to completion. That means we discuss your current production process (and potential production problems) and decide together how an automated packaging or material handling solution can most benefit your process (and your bottom line).

Our automation solutions are turnkey, but that doesn’t mean they won’t work for you if you have a complex production process. Through tracing the steps of your production, we can ensure that the best automated services are in the right places.

Eliminating Risk And Improving Quality

Repetitive, monotonous tasks are a risk for manufacturers. Not only is it difficult to find (and keep) workers to perform these tasks, those same workers are also at risk of repetitive-motion injury. Palletizing, pick-and-place, and bin picking are all notorious positions within production processes for a reason.

Risk Elimination

Risk is a hindrance to efficiency, and ultimately to success. Unnecessary risk is something that should be eliminated from a manufacturing process as quickly and efficiently as possible. At Cross, we believe that when you add quality and efficiency while removing risk you get innovation. And that’s a philosophy we stand behind when it comes to material and package handling automation integration.

Quality Improvements

An automated package handling robot won’t suffer the same issues as a human performing the same job. Material handling with automation eliminates the risks of worker injury as well as error through fatigue. But the ultimate goal isn’t to replace the worker. Without having to do repetitive tasks, that same worker is free to engage in significantly higher-value labor. These two factors are what improve overall quality.

Production Optimization

These days, automation for packaging and material handling is rapidly becoming less of a luxury. As more and more manufacturing operations adopt robotic automation, it’s becoming increasingly necessary to automate manual processes to compete. And our packaging and material handling solution can do exactly that. Working with Cross is a commitment to future-proofing your operations.

Did you know... the precision measurement group at Cross was founded in 1939 by our current CEO's grandfather, Jim King. That's a whole lot of calibration!
Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet of paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company has grown significantly since our start in 1954. Over the years we've acquired 26 companies! Today, our five groups have expertise in everything from industrial automation to precision measurement, and industry knowledge going all the way back to 1939.
