Creform Corporation, a manufacturer of unique products for material handling structures, has designed a cart to handle the movement of sequenced production parts for an automotive OEM. The cart, with bumper brackets to ward off damage and to provide part protection was designed specifically to increase the efficiency of parts handling and safety throughout the assembly operation.

The unit features a Creform heavy-duty hitch for regular towing through the automotive assembly plant. It can be towed in a train of three behind a manned tugger.

It features two levels, each with four distinct compartments. The slots are open at either end for easy load/unload, while each level features a half-inch plastic shelf that is divided into four distinct compartments.

The open design of the cart also makes all the shelves visible to help enhance visual inventory management. Surfaces are wide so that parts can be spread out to avoid tangling and improve picking efficiency.

Further, parts are handled directly on the cart eliminating the need for boxes or totes, which helps reduce waste and improves efficiency for the associate.

The cart is designed to hold two hours’ worth of parts inventory for this OEM and is designed to be filled in the supermarket storage area and then moved directly to a line side location on the production floor. It has four large swivel casters with 8-inch diameters for easy rolling, repositioning and stability. Locks can be an added option.

A wide variety of pipe color options are available.
