Marley Eternit

Grading system with Microtec scanning technology

In the beginning of 2016, Marley Eternit announced its acquisition of John Brash & Co. The two businesses are integrating two complementary companies, both of which are influential players, with highly regarded reputation in the UK construction market.

New optimizing solution
After the installation of the grading line with scanning technology, now was the time to take a look at automating the process after the high-speed moulder at Marley Eternit.

The solution System TM delivered to Marley Eternit for their roof top batten production, is a high-speed bundling line with a very high bundle speed.

The process
After the moulder the workpieces are aligned and automatically put together as bundles with 10 workpieces per bundle. Each bundle is strapped three times cross vise. It is possible to label each individual workpiece within each bundle for further identification in the production process.

The completed and labelled bundles are then automatically transported to a stacking system stacking the bundles into packs, and stability sticks are placed between each layer.

This investment in a System TM bundling line has made it possible for Marley Eternit to reduce the number of operators and increase the production capacity.

The solution consists of:

  • High-speed bundler
  • Microtec scanning technology
