Creform Corp. offers an adaptive material handling structure utilizing its Creform System of pipes and joints. The Tray Cart/Rack structure can be used for storing shallow trays and low-profile tote boxes containing parts and components. It can also be used to transport products throughout a facility as well as provide safe, secure over-the- road travel.
The new design features aluminum U-channel sections that function as tray supports and are mounted on the opposing vertical columns of the structure's bays. The channel is sized to allow the tray or box's lip to easily slide into the channel. Because the lip is retained on three sides by the channel rails, each tray or box is held securely during over-the-road transport.
Each U-channel is mounted with a slight front to back downward angle that prevents trays from sliding off the front, which is the loading side of the rack/cart. An integral vertical backstop pipe keeps trays in place, helping to ensure that the trays remain seated and resist the vibration and Joséling of transport. As an added precaution, an attachable/detachable elastic strap extends down the front of each bank of trays to secure their position. The spacing of the channel rails between levels can also be adjusted so that the bottom of an upper container helps to retain the parts of the tray immediately below, thus preventing parts from being tossed around.
The open-shelf configuration makes loading and unloading easy, while the adaptive nature of the Creform System's construction flexibility provides the option of handling parts/trays from one side of the rack or from both sides of the cart.
The open-structure design makes the cart lightweight and easy to maneuver even when fully loaded with parts. Maneuverability is enhanced by Creform heavy-duty bolt-on casters. These casters have large-diameter wheels, which allow for greater load-handling capacities and easy rolling over a variety of surfaces.
