Workstation Allows Angled Presentation of Part for Ease of Handling and Presentation
Workstation assists automotive supplier in handling parts during production
Greer, SC—Creform Corporation engineers have developed a workstation with flow lanes for first-in, first out parts handling in an assembly operation to aid in ergonomics and productivity.
The workstation built using Creform 28 mm pipes and joints, and built for an automotive parts supplier, is simple in design yet features a wide range of benefits to assist in the assembly process. The unit features a plastic work surface covering the entire front of the station, and above the work surface are two flow lane with angled presentation of the totes which hold part for assembly.
The flow lanes incorporating Creform EF Series skate-wheel conveyors (Aluminum rails with plastic rollers that spin on stainless steel axles), provide first-in, first out (FIFO) parts handling while the presentation angle, which is created by a secondary angle, enhances the visibility of the part in the totes and equally important easy physical access to the parts. The angle of the presentation also keeps loose parts in the front of the tote for easy picking. The extra angle at the front is provided by a slide pipe which features low friction plastic coating.
At the top of the workstation are two flow lanes which allow the return of the empty totes to the rear of the workstation. This allows for a material handling associate to pick up when bringing a full tote to restock the station.
All Creform workstation are configurable to the users demands of width, depth and height dimensions, while the workstation pictured has an overall dimension of 60" W x 80" D x 64" H and is shown with heavy-duty leveling feet for added stability. It has a 600 lb. load capacity.
Creform workstations can be configured as a stand-up or sit-down station in either a a mobile or stationary orientation. They can be developed as ESD for anti-static applications and can be built using Creform’s unique 42 mm pipe for heavy-duty applications. Various pipe colors are available.
Creform provides its workstations as assemble structures or kits with pre-cut pipe for easy on-site assembly. An assembled structure is an excellent starting and introduction point for a user. And as they get more familiar, they can take advantage of Creform flexibility by changing the stations configuration to best meet the application and manufacturing process.
The modular design of the Creform units allow users to add only the accessories required, which is cost efficient. Useful accessories include overhead light, computer screen, shelves, additional flow lanes, drawers, information sheet holders, label holders, tool storage, and hooks to hang tools and supplies.
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.
