Eton System for home textile

Overview

The Eton system for Home Textile industries is a flexible material handling system designed to eliminate manual transportation and minimise handling. It increases productivity radically, ensures an optimal working flow, and provides time for adding value to your products.

Technically the system consists of overhead conveyors with individually addressable product carriers, automatically finding its way to the correct operation. It is monitored by a computer providing all necessary data for measuring and managing the process optimally. Furthermore, the system is highly flexible and can rapidly be modified to changes in the production line or the need for expansion.

The Eton system transports all the pieces of one complete product through the manufacturing process. An addressable product carrier takes all the pieces of one entire unit (i.e. for mattresses – panels, borders,, zippers etc.) through the different steps of production. Operations are performed at individual workstations. The end result is a cost-efficient product, processed from pieces to completion.

Due to less need for manual handling, improved lead times, improved ergonomics and substantially shorter though-put time, improvement in efficiency varies between 30-100%. This makes the Eton system one of the most a valuable investments for global enterprises.

Flexible Productivity Concept, based on two system platforms, provides an array of flexible system tools that allows the UPS to be optimized for utmost customer profitability. With every Eton Systems workstation comes the unique Eton Systems chain. FPC components offer a wide range of options, including:

  • Multiple rails for sorting at workstations.
  • Automatic loading devices, pick-ups and work delivery robots.
