An industrial automation machine builder was looking for ways to organize and keep track of tools that were used during the building process. They looked to Creform and its engineers to design and build an application-specific tool cart to support operation.
The cart, built with design input from both the manufacturer and Creform, helps promote efficiency and reinforces tool accountability.
The cart's framework is built with 28mm high visibility "yellow" plastic coated steel pipe with black joints. It features an angled top level shelf that holds shadow-board for tool storage and an integrated laptop holder on a pivoting shelf which can be positioned for easy access. A lower horizontal shelf is used for bulk storage while a pull-out drawer above the shelf can be used for storage of tools and supplies.
Above and to the left side of the cart are small shelves for miscellaneous production supplies including hardware items. The shelf positions are easily height adjustable based on the stature of the associate and shelves are easily added or reduced. The cart has four large diameter casters with 4 in. wheels—two that swivel and two that lock for easy rolling, positioning and maneuverability. Overall dimensions of the cart pictured are 40" L x 30" W x 54" H and has a 400 lb. load capacity.
