“We had long searched for a flexible solution to assist in the unloading of pallet boxes containing different sized, heavy objects. Now, the Cray X has become an indispensable part of our day-to-day work – and was immediately embraced by our employees. The system provides the optimal support to enhance their health and wellbeing while undertaking their challenging work in logistics at SMC.”
