Creform Corp. has developed a new material handling concept for organizing multipart and component assembly tasks and value-added service applications. Using the Creform System of plastic-coated steel pipe, joints, and accessories, the company has created the Kitting Cart, a structure that performs as a push cart to safely transport parts. It can also serve as a portable tool crib to keep tools within handy reach, as a temporary storage rack keeping kitted parts in correct orientation, and as a quick visual aid to determine part inventories for sequencing, assembly, and kitting.
The Kitting Cart features four large height-adjustable shelves for holding and transporting parts. The shelves measure 20 by 48 inches and have a lattice-like pattern to provide ample strength, allowing the carts to have capacities from 300 to 1,000 pounds. The shelves' height and spacing can be quickly adjusted, and the shelves can be removed and reinstalled as projects dictate. With the integration of tool holsters and compartments, the cart makes easy work of organizing the required implements, materials, and supplies to complete jobs fast. The cart also incorporates a series of hooks for suspending larger, awkward-shaped parts and components and as a means to protect high-finished parts from damage.
The cart has four large-diameter swivel casters with two casters that have a locking element to stabilize the cart at work locations. Other available accessories include rubber bumper rings to protect from collisions, pegboard sections, clip-on bins for small parts and hardware items, a clipboard for instructions and notes, and labeling protectors to help organize and identify components. Because of the modularity of the Creform system, only the items required for specific situations need be included, helping to streamline weight and costs.
Creform offers the cart as a kit, with all components pre-fabricated, sized, and packaged to individual customer specifications, and knocked down for economical shipping. Cart kits use Creform metal joints with one-tool clamping to the pipe sections to make assembly quick and easy.
