16) Line shaft driven roller conveyor
This form of powered conveyor consists of a rotating line shaft located under and perpendicular to the load carrying conveyor rolls. The line shaft runs parallel to the length of the conveyor. Belts or circular rubber bands connect the motor driven line shaft to the conveyor rollers thereby powering the conveyor.
17) Library shelving
A form of cantilevered shelving that is primarily utilized in application where ease of reconfiguration is necessary. This type of shelving is configured to satisfy book and technical manual storage requirements. Space between shelves can be expanded to accommodate taller items.
18) Lever hoist
A lever operated manual device used to lift. lower, or pull a load and to apply or release tension. Utilizes a ratchet and pawl mechanical configuration to incrementally raise or lower a load or to apply or release tension.
19) Link chain
A form of chain made up of a series of metal loops or links that are joined together pivotally and form a medium for lifting or conveying and transmitting power or motion.
20) Label placard

The shelving may be either open or closed type. In some instances, a ledge unit can be added to a regular shelving unit.
25) Labor Management Systems
Labor Management Systems optimize the deployment of labor resources by establishing realistic performance standards and matching those standards to planned activity for optimal scheduling. Also used to monitor team and individual performance for pay and incentive purposes.
An element attached to the base of a container that provides handling clearance and safe stacking.
The latch mechanism on folding containers used with a U-shaped part called the staple to secure folding container walls and gates in a closed position.

A limit switch that uses a lever as the actuator for the purpose of coming in physical contact with the object to be detected.
29) Lot reconciliation
The use of sensors to count the number of objects that pass a particular point in the material handling system for purposes of reconciling actual production or material movement with planned production.
30) Lifting beam
A solid or fabricated metal or wooden beam, suspended from a hoist/crane or from forks of a forklift, designed to provide multiple lifting points. The lifting beam enables the user to attach the load at more than one point therein securing and controlling the load's movement.
