The problem, they had many empty gas cylinders that needed to be packaged for transport. Currently they were using 3 or 4 employees and trying to band these cylinders together on a skid. Once they had 10 of these cylinders banded to the skid, they were using a forklift to tilt and lower the skid down so they could load it on the truck. Because of the time, safety, and energy that was being wasted they knew there had to be a better solution.
ATI suggested their Zero-Low Upender Positioner. They could, with one person place the skid in the upright position. Then, roll the empty cylinders onto the crate positioner making a triangle with the 10 cylinders. Next, they would band the cylinders to the pallet. This helped with keeping the cylinders together during rotation and getting them ready for shipment. Finally, they tilted the upender positioner 90 degrees so they could pick up the pallet and load it into the semi. Not only did they make this application more efficient by only needing 1 employee, they also made the whole process much safer for the worker and the gas cylinders.
