Roll On Racking. Alwayse the Right Move For Your Warehouse. The warehouse is the logistics hub of the company, the centre where a company’s tangible inflows and outflows are managed. Optimum operational capacity, speed of movement of material and therefore the profitability of a company largely depends on the storage solution installed. Therefore implementing the right industrial racking system in the warehouse is essential to maximise productivity. However, the safety of the installation and in particular workers takes priority for the correct functioning of a warehouse. Health and Safety In Warehouses The Health and Safety Executive states: “As an employer, you must protect your workers from the risk of injury from hazardous manual handling in the workplace. Manual handling means transporting or supporting a load by hand or bodily force. It includes lifting, putting down, pushing, pulling, carrying or moving loads.” This means you must reduce the risk of injury from hazardous manual handling to as low as reasonably practicable. This includes the weight of a load. For example, tools for stamping and metal forming machines can weigh several hundred pounds. Mechanical aids can help to reduce or eliminate risks from manual handling these tools. But many companies haven’t yet considered Alwayse Ball Transfer Units as mechanical aids. Contrary to the common belief that providing ergonomic equipment for warehouse movement and the development of mechanical aids to assist with heavy lifting or reducing awkward postures is difficult, Alwayse can show you that’s not the case. Where Do Alwayse Fit In? Using Alwayse Ball Transfer Units enables fast and safe handling of tools and eliminates manual handling completely. By utilising Alwayse Ball Transfer Units in racking and lifting equipment the operator can concentrate on the job at hand – not on how to mover product of the rack, transport it through the warehouse, load it into the machine and return it afterwards. Another important aspect of the warehouse is space: in a traditional warehouse, where parts and goods are moved by forklift truck or overhead crane, parts have to be stored in a way that allows access space. Therefore parts are usually stored only 1 line deep with access space between them. This means that up to 40% of your racking can be empty. The standard answer to this is to consider expanding or even leasing space somewhere. But first of all, ask yourself if it is possible to maximize what you already have. Using Alwayse Ball Transfer Units means you are using 100% of your available space – maximising your investment.
