When purchasing a crate washer, various things need to be taken into consideration in order to make the right choices. To be able to place the crate washer that suits you perfectly within your company, Elpress will carefully review a number of steps with you. In this blog we will run through the process.
The process for purchasing a crate washer consists of four phases that ensure you will be the proud owner of a crate washing machine that has been the best choice for your company. These four steps are:
- Orientation Interview
- Made-to-measure advice
- Technical drawing for approval
During an orientation interview, that is without obligation, Elpress will identify together with you what conditions and expectations your new crate washer ought to meet. Therefore it is important to know what kind and degree of contamination you will be dealing with. It is also important to know how many crates per hour or per day need to be washed and what kind of crates you will be using. Do you have one type of crate or are there various types? We will also look at how much space you have available for the crate washer and what the logistics process around the crate washer looks like. Your available budget is of course also an important starting point.
With the available information from the orientation interview, Elpress will be able to give you made-to-measure advice. We can determine which type of standard crate is best suited to your company. Then we can look at which options are necessary to get the optimal results that will meet your expectations. Would you like to dry your crates as well for example, then you will need a blower unit. If sticker and glue residues need to be removed, we will have to look into the solution offered by a sticker removal unit.
We then compare our recommendations against your needs and requirements, in this way - together with some adjustments if necessary - we will come to a final solution together and make a technical drawing.
Technical drawing and production
Elpress will make a technical drawing on which all specifications including the machine version are clearly displayed. In this way you can easily determine whether the crate washer will be built entirely to your wishes. You can use this drawing for example to check whether the doors of the electrical cabinet and the water and electricity connections are in the right place. Following your approval of this technical drawing your crate washer will go into production.
