Take The A-Train? Beter Yet, Take The A-Frame...Cart That Is
Creform® A-Frame cart helps hold hard-to-handle parts securely and safely
Sometimes a simple square or ‘cube’ cart just isn’t the right design to get a job done. When that happens, it’s good to have a supplier that thinks outside-the-box, or in this case, outside-the-cube. Case in point, Creform Corporation and its new A-Frame Cart design. Designed in this case (pictured) to specifically hold bus entry doors and related parts in a production environment.
The cart is ideal to assist in production efficiency, reduction of product damage and to support lean manufacturing initiatives. The unique A-frame design tilts the stored doors back so they stay secure in place prior to and during load/unload. A lip at the bottom of the cart adds additional secured holding for the lower portion of the door. The cart features four centrally located and easily adjusted shelves for added flexibility which can be accessed from either side. Each of the shelves feature a ½ in. HDPE bottom for easy load/unload and product protection. The ability to see through the structure also enhances its safety and visual inventory management.
Each cart is built tough to handle the rigors of a production environment as the bus doors move through the warehouse and into the production area. That strength is further bolstered by its very design since more of the weight is centered between the wheels. The A-Frame Cart features large push/pull handles and is designed with ergonomics in mind making reach comfortable for associates of varying stature. The handles are also easy to adjust and quickly repositioned with a 5 mm hex wrench.
The cart shown has overall dimensions of 40” L x 36” W x 36” H and comes with four large diameter swivel casters (two locking) with 5 in. wheels. A variety of configurations and pipe color options are available including anti-static. The cart shown can hold up to 500 lb. Optional accessories include label holders, foam cushion and a hitch for towing with a Creform AGV.
The Creform System is used to create an array of material handling and efficiency enhancing devices and is a proven component in 5S, continuous improvement and Lean Manufacturing programs. The company partners with customers in supporting these programs.
