Strapping system aids speedy despatch

Shirt manufacturer Charles Tyrwhitt LLP is using an automated strapping system from Mosca to ensure the fast, reliable strapping of its mail order packaging. Charles Tyrwhitt supplies quality shirts, ties and shoes, which are sold via the Internet as well as mail order and retail outlets.

The company has recently moved to a distribution centre in Milton Keynes for the storage and despatch of orders worldwide. A high quality strapping system was essential to the success of the warehouse operation.

The Mosca RO-TRP-4 was the machine chosen for the operation. The unit is fully automated and offers single strapping at speeds of up to 30 packs per minute. Integrated into the warehouse’s conveying system, it offers the flexibility to strap the various pack sizes used by Charles Wyrwhitt.

Jez Smith, logistics manager at Charles Tyrwhitt, comments: “Our new warehouse is designed for the speedy despatch of orders, and it was important to install a strapping system that met the technical quality of the line.”
