Walk around most any distribution center or manufacturing facility and you will see them.
They are hiding inside and underneath old pieces of automation equipment that were shoved underneath pallet racking. An old shrink tunnel or L-bar sealer in a warehouse is like free rent to spiders. The equipment sits for sometimes years on end because of a minor issue or two. It may be the company doesn't have service personnel on staff or they may not have enough techinical expertise to solve the problem. These spiders have been squatting for far too long and the in-house service department at FlexPAC wants to do something about it.

Before you go calling PETA on us understand that we don't have anything against spiders per say. They are actually alot like the service department at FlexPAC, catching and cleaning up bugs. What we do have a problem with is when perfectly good equipment like the L-bar sealer found in the above video sits unused. Sure we could've told our customer there was no use in fixing the equipment and sold or leased them a brand new unit. Instead we almost completely overhauled, cleaned up and rebuilt the piece of equipment. The rebuild cost nearly half of what a new unit would've run.
Worried about ancient equipment and access to parts for it? Some of the parts for this rebuild where completely re-tooled by a local machine shop to match, and even improve upon, the original parts.
Request for our equipment specialist Tom Masters, our service manager Brad Anderson or any of our other 5 in-house service staff to evaluate your broken automation equipment today.
We all know the spiders have had it easy for far too long.
