A better stocking solution with Graco Invisipac

Invisipac

Application
The company Grupo Palazon y Mira, in Alicante, Spain, produce and stock marble slabs. To avoid a vacuum effect when stocking the slabs one against another, they were introducing a piece of paper between the slabs. They needed a new and easier solution to stock their marble slabs, one which would keep air circulating between the slabs to avoid the vacuum effect, reducing manual work and damage to the marble.

Solution

The local Graco distributor, Domo3, proposed the application of wax tears on the marble slabs to let air circulate between the slabs when they are stocked. The new Graco Invisipac was used to apply heated wax on the marble slabs. The Invisipac was configured with one hose and a simple manifold for a valve with electro-valve.

Results

Palazon y Mira now stocks all the marble slabs of their production automatically. Today with some tears of wax applied automatically with the Graco Invisipac and the waxing machine, Palazon y Mira has reduced the amount of manual work and can stock all marble slabs automatically, providing better quality and less damage to the marble.
