Work in Process Carts
Push electrical panels by hand to place material at line side
Within 10 days, expedited design to production & delivery
Schneider Electric asked that we duplicate their existing work in process carts, and add push handles to make them easier to use on the floor. Also, we had a time constraint of two-weeks to turn the carts around. They were ramping up their weekend shift and needed more carts.
How it was used
To take stamped parts from press to line side for secondary operations. The current dollies were easy for operators to put three parts in and out of at each station. They could segregate each part and it would come off of the cart. There was a drip tray to allow for oil as well.
Unique about the specs
Separation of parts in each of the openings while ensuring that the parts were conveniently placed close to one another. This allowed the worker to load part a, b and c in a segregated fashion but within reach, sequentially.
Unique about how we helped the customer
We had no prints. We needed to get creative by taking field measurements and reverse engineering the pieces. We visited to do “go and sees” to understand the improvements needed. We were able to simplify the process by ordering the casters from the vendor and assembling.
