Polstore made a bold move and invested in a CNC router machine and design software at the beginning of 2020 with the goal of designing and manufacturing tool and asset control foams; to compliment their storage solution offering. After 10 months the result has not only been rewarding but also the learning curve surprising deliverng exceptional results.
‘We love it’ says MD Adam Lucas ‘ as when you open that draw and see the reaction on the clienst face – it is the ‘WOW’ factor for sure!’
However to get to this stage has been a stressful undertaking and some serious training and internal workshops have been required. The amount of detail required to finalise a foam layout can be complex. The enefit for the clinet is that Polstore do not need to take away your tools or assets – the survey and data capture is done of site. The onus on the client is ensure all the correct items and qtys are available with no suprise additions once there has been a design freeze.
Once all the data is captured it is fed into our meander software system – the image if uploaded, profiled and placed into the foam layout. Once complete and approved, the file is sent to the CNC router and machined accordingly. With some additional finishing and cleaning the foam is complete and ready for install.
There are many benefits to having a foam system installed including reducing loss of items, increasing pickings speeds, improving workforce morale, capitalising your assets and passing strict ISO audits.
