Leggett & Platt Inc.’s machinery division, Global Systems Group, based in Carthage, Missouri, has partnered with Denmark-based Waste-exit in the distribution of waste-management solutions.
Global Systems Group now is the global sales agent for Waste-exit’s material waste handling systems that are sold to bedding makers.
Nearly any mattress manufacturing machine can be retro-fitted to use the vacuum removal system, GSG said in a news release. Trimmings, dust and cut materials are automatically drawn into a vacuum tube that transports this waste from the machine to a centralized collection area.
Automatically removing material waste improves operational efficiency by freeing up factory floor space, removing potential injury hazards, and reducing nonvalue-added cleaning and maintenance procedures during production time, according to the news release.
The addition of Waste-exit to GSG’s slate of offerings will help customers strengthen and improve manufacturing efficiencies, the company said.
