Lower Operating Costs and Improve Ergonomics with Carts and Casters

Presenters: Rob Jorden, Blickle Wheels and Caster and Terry Parmelee, Kinetic Technologies

The movement of material through a manufacturing environment is under perpetual scrutiny to maximize efficiency while also mitigating workforce ergonomic stressors and safety concerns.

The following core conditions need to be addressed when taking into consideration both efficiency and superior ergonomic conditions: lifting, reaching, placing, positioning, pushing, pulling, braking, rotating, tracking and distance. Industrial cart systems equipped with optimized caster selection are a vital component for manufacturing facilities that are concurrently working to improve material flow as well as the daily workforce conditions that provide harmful stress points on their employees’ bodies.
