The biggest step in the material handling supply chain in any factory or industrial facility is the stage from the warehouse to the workbench. In most cases, a forklift will be required, particularly under circumstances where large and bulky items are required. Generally, standard forks are well suited to palletized loads, however, for more specialist items such as drums or loose items, hoppers and special fork lift extensions are incredibly useful, and will allow for safe handling of whatever item you need to carry.
Forklifts play a vital role within the material handling supplies chain within the factory, and their role should be maximized due to the relatively high cost of acquisition that they represent. There are plenty of accessories available that can modify the truck for special purposes, and this extends the range of their usefulness significantly. Most adaptations such as a self tipping hopper or oil drum carrier are fitted as forklift extensions, so the systems are very easy to add.
Other areas of material handling supply that are important to consider are the final step in the journey of the raw product to the workbench. This final step can be either achieved by hand if the item is small enough to lift by a person, or alternatively, may have to rely on the use of some kind of lifting system. There are a number of different options available to you, and all have very specific advantages. One of the most popular and flexible options is the jib crane. These can be either fixed or mobile, can utilize either an electronic lift or a manual system, and are excellent for lifting heavy weights from the ground and then be swung into place.
Of course, the internal material handling supply system that you build into your working processes will also include many other pieces of equipment such as carts and trolleys, pallet jacks, and gantry systems, but the core of the system should always be kept as simple as possible in order to ensure maximum efficiency.
