Bulk Materials Handling Equipment

The central aim of bulk materials handling equipment is to ensure that more items can be carried from storage to the factory at a lower cost without having a significant impact on safety. Bulk Materials Handling Equipment Sales & Nationwide Installation.

Any business that is involved in the production of items from raw materials needs to have a robust internal distribution system in place that can allow for efficient movement of things that are required from storage to the production area in the factory floor. The larger your operation, the more efficient it can be, and the lower that the costs of manufacture can be forced, however, this focus on large scale production means that specialist bulk materials handling equipment must be put into place in order to be able to properly handle the volume of supplies that are needed in the factory.

The central aim of bulk materials handling equipment is to ensure that more items can be carried from storage to the factory at a lower cost without having a significant impact on safety. Fork lift trucks are often the basis for many of the innovative products that are available to handle raw materials, and there are a number of different adaptations that can be fitted to the forks in order to make moving easier.

One of the most popular items of bulk materials handling equipment currently available is the standard fork mounted hopper that can be attached to the standard forks of a regular truck. Ideally, the hopper can be loaded with items for disposal by staff, or filled with raw materials in the warehouse before being carried on the forklift.

There are a number of different hoppers available from East Rack that will enable you to carry goods around from one place to another. These hoppers have been designed to carry different items safely, and are robust enough to ensure that they will not be damaged during normal use. There are self tipping hoppers available as well as units that have been specially designed to carry dust, liquid and powder type items without spilling them around the workplace. Hoppers can be used to carry large amounts of material safely.

A wide variety of different fork lift extensions are available that allow your standard forklift to be adapted to carry specific items such as drums and bags. They can improve the way in which your forklift is utilized and ensure that its role is maximized wherever possible. With greater flexibility, it will be able to fulfill a greater number of tasks in the warehouse, and give greater return on the investment that you have made in it.

For easier transport, larger items are palletized during transportation, and in order to move them around the warehouse, specific bulk materials handling equipment is required. Using a forklift to move items through the factory is not always a good idea, as it can be dangerous. It is more sensible to use a pallet jack. These are easier to maneuver in use, and much lower in cost than a forklift. These jacks can be handled by a single person, and used to lift full pallets where required.

Other bulk materials handling equipment that is needed for the modern factory includes the whole range of cranes such as gantry cranes and jib cranes that are needed to lift and manipulate the heaviest items into place so that they can be worked with effectively.
