Indianapolis, IN, February 13, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- An energy-efficient conveyor system from Hytrol Conveyor Company and integration partner, Bastian Solutions and helped Monoprice increase throughput from 4,000 orders to nearly 14,000 orders per day. Bastian Solutions was chosen as the Monoprice integration solutions provider and implemented a system comprised almost exclusively of 24-volt DC zero-pressure accumulation (ZPA) conveyor, manufactured by Hytrol Conveyor Company. To keep up with strong consumer demand, Monoprice needed an automated material handling system to help increase daily throughput from roughly 300 orders per hour up to 1,000 orders per hour.
Monoprice, Inc. specializes in high-quality cables, components, and accessories for computer and consumer electronics. The Monoprice brand's greatest claim to fame is the ability to deliver premium quality products on par with the best known national brands, doing so at prices far below the retail average with unmatched speed and service.
