Taking a Load Off at LCBO

Elmira, ON — Engineered Lifting System Equipment Inc. (ELS) has designed and supplied Ontario LCBO with Destuff-IT Unloaders, an innovative ergonomic assist device used by workers unloading cases and boxes of product from containers and trailers. Ontario LCBO initially approached ELS to design and fabricate a custom solution to integrate with their facilities telescopic conveyor systems. A Destuff-IT non-driven model was prototyped and installed at LCBO's Durham facility. There are now 15 units installed across Ontario at their multi-shift distribution centers. The LCBO installations have proven the Destuff-IT's to be durable and rugged with the initially installed machines having over 25,000 hours of operation with minimal maintenance issues. The success at LCBO lead ELS to realize the worldwide demand for ergonomic assists for destuffing containers and trailers. Seeing a bright future for the Destuff-IT, the design was patented in the US and has the patent pending in Canada. "The product evolved significantly from the initial napkin sketch the LCBO supplied, to the final machine that would become a part of our standard lineup," says Richard Kat, VP sales and marketing at Engineered Lifting Systems & Equipment Inc.

Dave, a Production Controller at Kayser-Roth recently shared with ELS, "We love our new recently installed Destuff-IT Bi-Directional machine. We can now unloaded 2 containers in the same time it would normally take us for 1 container. We unloaded a 40' container with 664 cases in 1 hour and 7 minutes. This would compare to about 2 to 3 hours without it. I had 1 person in the container unloading, 2 on the sides of the conveyor unloading, and 1 person moving the pallets as we got them full. Not only did this speed up our unloading time, it also reduced our scanning time in the Pre Receiving process (we were also able to scan the cases much faster). Once we really get the hang of this, I can only imagine how much faster we can get!"

Engineered Lifting Systems & Equipment Inc. (ELS) provides standard & custom overhead material lifting systems & equipment on time, on budget. We make difficult jobs seem easy!
