Greer, SC—Creform Corporation, a manufacturer of unique products for material handling and commercial use has designed and built an angled shelf cart for bins designed to hold small production parts and hardware items. Creform engineered and fully assembled the cart prior to shipment for the customer’s quick implementation. The cart is one of 25 used by the customer.
The cart pictured has a 42" W x 26" D footprint and is rated for up to 600 lb. load capacity. It was built using popular marine blue 28 mm plastic coated steel Creform pipe and black metal joints. It features eight levels with each level defined by Creform’s unique slide pipe with a side guide. This ensures totes are held securely in each lane. This steel slide pipe is coated with low friction HDPE plastic so the totes will easily flow down each lane.
Further, the 15° angle of the flow lanes helps the bins flow and keeps the parts in the bins toward the front for picking ease. This enhances associate’s ability for visual management of inventory. The cart can also easily be restocked from the rear and features a top cover to keep dust and dirt off the parts and bins held below. Each of the cart’s levels can be repositioned or reconfigured with only simple tools.
The cart features four 4 in. diameter swivel casters with urethane wheels for easy positioning, stability and safe movement. The four casters feature brakes that can be engaged for secure positioning. Wheels lend themselves to easily move the structure from the warehouse to the production floor or even for housekeeping or just to relocate. Push/pull handles on both ends of the cart are positioned at comfortable ergonomic height.
Options include feet rather than wheels, solid surface shelves and gravity conveyors in place of the slide pipe.
As with all Creform carts, higher capacity and custom cart sizes and configurations are possible with the Creform system of 28 mm, 32 mm and 42 mm plastic coated steel pipes and metal joints. They can be configured for ESD (anti-static) applications. The component nature of Creform carts provides added value and ensures that if there is any damage or worn components replacement parts are readily available.
A wide variety of pipe color options are available and upgrade hitches are available for AGV delivery. Accessories include hooks, label holders for shelf levels or even shelf positions, writing surface with clip boards to name a few. Creform carts are available as a kit, assembled structure or in component form for a complete DIY solution
The Creform System is used to create an array of material handling and efficiency enhancing devices and is a proven component in continuous improvement and Lean Manufacturing programs. The company partners with customers in developing and implementing these programs.
