Packaging for Peugeot components

Conteyor : 24 October, 2006  (Company News)
PSA Peugeot Citroen has selected the Conteyor Multibag System for the packaging of the Citroen C5 rear parcel shelf and the steering wheel of the Peugeot 308 and Citroen C3 and C5 models.


This innovative textile-based packaging system enables components to be packed with a much higher density than with conventional systems. The system is easy to handle at the assembly line, where it improves operator safety thanks to its excellent ergonomics. In addition, it enables a reduction in manufacturing time and cost, thereby providing significant productivity advantages during the assembly of cars. In the Conteyor Multibag System the products ‘hang’. It therefore provides excellent protection of components during loading and unloading, particularly of delicate, painted or sensitive products. The conTeyor system offers easy accessibility of parts which means the operator can fit a component, and immediately take the next component without having to stop to remove any packaging material. “Since implementing the Conteyor Multibag System we have been able to improve material handling ergonomics for the operator and reduce manufacturing time and cost, which helps us improve overall plant efficiency,” remarked Mr. Rabier, Manager of Standard Packaging at PSA Velizy, France.
