New Muscle Takes the Floor: Kastalon Introduces a Patent Pending Solution for Coil Storage
Press release date: September 16, 2005
As many mills and processing centers are embarking on the journey towards lean manufacturing practices to bolster profits, Kastalon, Inc. has answered their call for a more efficient and safer coil storage system by introducing the patent pending Coil-Saddle(TM).
Coil-Saddles are designed with a deep cradle that fits virtually any size coil and takes up minimal floor space. The highly-engineered bright safety yellow polyurethane provides non-marring, cushioning support. Weighing only 45 pounds, the Coil-Saddle can be quickly moved into position for holding coils waiting processing and moved out of the way to avoid tripping hazards. In permanent holding areas, the Coil-Saddle can also be permanently bolted to the floor for secure storage.
With the cost of raw materials and inventory carrying costs continually increasing, improving quality and reducing scrap has become the number one objective of plant management. Available in two sizes, with or without an oil containment reservoir, Coil-Saddles are the front line weapon in scrap management by protecting surface sensitive metals from floor irregularities and contamination.
Kastalon has been a leader in the design, engineering and manufacturing of high quality, innovative polyurethane parts and products to protect metals. From the time metal is rolled, coated or processed Kastalon roller coverings, mandrel sleeves, filler plates, coil handling pads, fork truck bumpers and coil storage products are in service providing outstanding protection and increasing yields.
