Creform-built ‘project’ cart makes life easier in a production environment
Greer, SC—There’s an old saying that “there is beauty in simplicity.” With Creform there’s also functionality, versatility and capability. Creform has designed and built a simple shelf cart that helps do the work in complex production environments. The cart is used to kit parts, tools and supplies to support special project production. It allows an associate to pull parts and supplies from the warehouse storage area, organize them into a useful arrangement and move them into a production or project area.
The simple design allows companies to organize only the parts they need and to help minimize production floor space dedicated to inventory. It keeps items easily accessible and the simple shelf design allows for seamless changeover when going from one project to another
The cart pictured features three shelves that are light weight yet strong with corrugated plastic surfaces. The versatile shelves can hold packaged parts as well as parts without packaging. Each shelf can be repositioned with simple tools, another benefit to this simple cart.
The custom white board (12 in. x 36 in. pictured) is centered over the cart and allows for specific direction that needs to be given to the associate. The versatility of the board…writing surface on both sides…allows for notes such as sequence of operation, list of missing parts, shift directives, etc. The section of Creform pipe next to the white board provides a convenient ‘holster’ to hold and store a marker or writing device.
The cart features four 4 in. dia. casters with rubber wheels for easy, stable and safe movement. Two of the casters have brakes for secure positioning. It also features a 28 in. x 38 in. compact footprint and can hold up to 450 lb. Custom sizes and higher load capacities are available from Creform.
Options include various colors, configured for ESD (anti-static) application, label holders, hooks and clipboards. The cart is available as a kit or assembled structure or in component form for complete DIY solutions.
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.
