Online PR News – 01-May-2014 – Westport, MA – Therigy LLC, a leading pharmaceutical industry consulting company, recommends custom manufactured, modular plug and play conveyor systems from SmartMove Conveyors.
Dino Martino, RPh, Senior Vice President of Operations at Therigy. LLC discussed his experience with Paula Wright, National Sales Director of SmartMove Conveyor, LLC.
“These sophisticated, well made, and affordable options have been a fantastic feature to the operations that we design; they are finding their way into facilities that didn’t consider automation because they believed it was price prohibitive.”
“By incorporating SmartMove conveyance systems in our designs, I have been able to provide solutions for mid-sized specialty pharmacy operations that need a way to handle increased volume as they grow. When certain automation systems are not yet warranted or are out of reach from a financial perspective, SmartMove has been able to deliver opportunities that my clients thought would not be possible. These sophisticated, well made, and affordable options have been a fantastic feature to the operations that we design; they are finding their way into facilities that didn’t consider automation because they believed it was price prohibitive. The team at SmartMove have worked very hard with me on a number of occasions to customize solutions for even the most unique situations; they have been great to work with”.
For example, when Therigy client(s) want to move their product from pharmacy work stations to a receiving package area, Martino typically recommends a long line conveyor system with E-stops on each end. “SmartMove Conveyors are great for applications where the pharmacist is working on the line”, said Dino Martino.
“It’s a clean effective way to push a lot of product throughout the day, eliminating strain on the pharmacists”, said Paula Wright.
Dino’s concern for his client’s employees and his astute application of work flow automation has enabled several companies to decrease operating costs while improving the safety and efficiency of the work environment at the same time.
According to Martino, before SmartMove conveyor systems were installed, pharmacy team(s) had to hand carry boxes of meds to packing stations. The high volume of boxes per day increased the need for manual lifting and carrying, causing an unnecessary loss of time and efficiency for the employees. The installation addressed the problem and the conveyor system immediately improved productivity, by allowing many more boxes to move quickly from one end of the pharmacy to the other, while eliminating the dangers of carrying, lifting and walking.
SmartMove’s economical conveyor systems feature reduced energy demand and use just 25 watts of power. Clients are able to receive the system, un-pack it, and set it up without the need to hire technicians. And, the system(s) can be plugged into a standard outlet. SmartMove's pharmaceutical conveyors provide flexibility, safety and ease of installation and get fulfillment operations to run at peak efficiency within just a few hours of delivery and setup. The reliable quiet and clean conveyor system(s) improve productivity to run pharmacy inventory while reducing recalls, decreasing the hands on time on the line. SmartMove’s advanced conveyor technology is compatible with the newest automation software. Pharmacy conveyor automation allows facilities to meet increased pharmaceutical demands at a faster rate.
