Creform Kitting Cart Provides Horizontal and Vertical Storage Solutions



Greer, SC—Creform Corporation, a manufacturer of unique products for material handling and commercial use has designed and built a kitting cart for an aerospace manufacturer that provides an innovative and efficient storage solution.


 


The kitting cart features four custom level shelf sections in the front and a vertical storage section in the back. Each shelf level has three storage positions to store the ready to assemble kits. Creform pipe and joint are used to support the kitted products. The vertical storage section has lightweight plastic walls for containment and provides space for larger parts that could not fit in the kitted sections.  


 


The cart’s design is suitable for either manufacturing or warehouse use. This application requires the carts to travel between two customer locations. The cart is kitted at one site and delivers the ready to assemble kits at the second site.


 


The unit features six 5 in. diameter casters for easy, stable and safe movement. Wheels lend themselves to easily moving the structure for transport, housekeeping and/or repositioning while its open design makes it easy for the user to visually survey the parts stored and to quickly retrieve the desired parts.


 


The unit, with dimensions of 96″ L x 38″ W x 70″ T, is designed to hold up to 1000 lb.  The current parts being stored on this cart are light, making the cart easy to maneuver within the work areas and for transport.


 


The cart keeps together all the parts necessary to complete an individual task and can be positioned at the point-of-use to keep the associate on task for efficiency. The organized layout and dedicated compartments help ensure damage free handling and support easy visual inventory management.


 


As with all Creform carts, higher capacity and custom cart sizes and configurations are possible with the Creform system of 28 mm and 42 mm plastic-coated steel pipes and metal joints. When needed, they can be configured for ESD (anti-static) applications.  


 


The color of the pictured cart shown is ivory, but a wide variety of pipe color options are available and upgrade hitches are available for AGV or tugger delivery. Accessories include hooks, label holders for shelf levels or even shelf positions, pockets for paperwork, writing surface with clip boards just to name a few. Creform carts are available as a kit, assembled structure or in component form for a complete DIY solution. Built with clamp together metal joints for easy changes or repairs. 


 


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 enhancing these programs.
