A Durable, Lightweight Solution to Safely Unjam Conveyors

Whether your company moves thousands or millions of packages, operational inefficiencies, product damage or downtime can mean the difference between success and failure.

Parcel and Distribution Center Jam Issues
Jams happen... from little "Jiffy Jams", to large box jams that stop conveyor throughput. While designing better conveyor replacement parts, Globe's engineering team noticed that parcel and distribution centers were using bent metal makeshift Jam Pole tools or conduit pipes to unjam boxes on their conveyor and auto sorter systems. Sometimes the bent metal ends were welded or fastened and the sharp edges of the tool punctured the package or damaged the product. These heavy unprofessional solutions cause product damage and aren't safe for employees.

Airport Jam Issues
Airports handle thousands of passenger bags each day, and jams can result in luggage missing a flight. While designing radiation protection curtains for security scanners, Globe noticed that often baggage handlers or TSA personnel do not have the tools to safely unjam bags from security conveyors, resulting in exposure and safety issues for staff or baggage damage for customers.

X-Ray Scanner Tool
Cabinet X-Ray systems are used in Food Inspection and a variety of other industries. Our long-lasting composite-based Jam Break Tools allow staff to safely reach into X-Ray cabinets to remove stuck boxes, or rotate items. Providing Jam Break Poles is a much safer solution than having staff use their hands to adjust packages inside scanning systems. 

Composite Solutions
Globe created a family of Jam Break Tools to address these issues by providing a lightweight, durable and ergonomic solution to increase operational performance and enhance employee safety. Made with Brandonite® 1000-75D material, Globe's Jam Break Poles can withstand the extreme wear and tear normally encountered at distribution centers, warehouses, inspection centers and airports.

Rounded Head Reduces Package Damage
The heads of our Jam Break Tools are made of Globe's Brandonite® elastomeric material to provide years of trouble-free use. The Brandonite® composite material is much lighter than metal and easier to use. The specially contoured and rounded heads significantly reduces package damage and provide an ergonomic solution to increase operational performance and worker safety.
