Do you want to get more out of maintenance, but wonder how to approach this?
Many asset owners struggle with the challenges of how to optimise the performance of their assets and how to improve their maintenance strategy. Applying a Risk-Based Maintenance strategy can be beneficial. In this white paper, you can read how this works.
What if remote working and servicing is needed for whatever reasons?
How can we achieve this? CSi has found an excellent solution, and has started working with smart glasses. In this white paper, we explain how using smart glasses can be of great benefit to you, our customer.
Leasing palletising equipment
Leasing has become a strong alternative to buying palletising equipment.
As palletising equipment is considered as part of a production line, the generally accepted logic seems to be that you need to invest in this type of machinery. However, increased standardisation and the reduced time required for (de)installation have made it possible to rent or lease palletising equipment. In this white paper, we describe the pros and cons of alternative trajectories to simply buying palletising equipment. Want to know more?

AGV versus AMR
What if an improvement in operational performance is needed and a solution must be found to move forward?
How do you choose between new technologies? Here, CSi details two options: the AGV and the AMR. In this white paper, we explain the differences between the two alternatives, and how they can be of great benefit.
Combining packaging and palletising
Now that automatic palletising has become a standard function at the end of a production line, some purchasers will consider buying packaging and palletising equipment from the same supplier.
They ask the supplier of their packaging equipment to also supply palletising or vice versa: one-stop shopping. In this white paper, we elaborate on the aspects that influence this choice.
Managing palletising projects
Projects aiming to realise complex systems for automated palletising are often difficult and risky.
How can you mitigate the risks and stay in control? In the many years of executing these types of projects, CSi has continuously been learning and improving its project management skills to a level that we are confident to state that we have mastered engineer-to-order palletising projects. In this white paper we want to share our expertise in the field.
A business case for automatic palletising
There are many relevant factors that can be taken into account when calculating a business case for automatic palletising.
In many cases, the only cost element that is considered is that relating to the people at the end of the production or packaging line. But there are many more factors that should be taken into consideration. This white paper was written with the aim of presenting the different elements that can be used in calculating a business case for automatic palletising. It is important to understand the full impact of the cost of automating this end-of-line function.
Total Cost of Ownership
How can you measure the Total Cost of Ownership of palletising equipment?
The initial investment in your installation is important. However, the CAPEX is only part of the installation costs. Costs during the lifetime also influence the total costs of your installation. The OPEX provides you with a complete picture of the total Cost of Ownership of your installation. In this white paper, we explain that both the CAPEX and OPEX investments influence the Total Cost of Ownership of your installation. In addition, we describe how this can be measured for CSi palletising equipment.
