Spring Cleaning

With the warm weather upon us, it is the perfect time to clean, inspect and take inventory before the cold weather hits. Open the hood, check to see if there is any dust or debris that could be clogging the radiator.

While you’re there, take stock of any oily residue. Check that any required maintenance hasn’t been neglected over the past 3 months. One required maintenance item that is easily overlooked: a lot of smaller trucks are equipped with timing belts that require routine replacement. Some are required to be replaced in as little as 2,000 hours, some will go as far as 3,500 hours. Should a timing belt slip, the camshaft will not be in time, the cheap result is that the engine simply won’t start until the belt is replaced. The expensive result is that the timing slips in such as way that internal parts (valves and pistons) make contact with one another, requiring a bare minimum of a premature valve job. A little time now will pay dividends when the cold weather rolls in.

When should you consider a Vertical Lift in your Operation

The following are some key points to look at as you review your space and operation.

Recover vast amounts of floor space. Up to 80%, by eliminating rows of conventional static shelving, pallet racks and modular drawer cabinets. Vertical lifts have a very small footprint, yet they can utilize the full height of any facility up to 80′ and deliver the stored items automatically when requested. Customers utilize their previously unused overhead space, to store more in less space.

Increase employee productivity by eliminating the need for workers to walk long distances and climb ladders in search of items in storage. All stock is in the same place at all times. Customers can do more in less time with fewer people.

Improve inventory control by utilizing onboard, high-performance inventory management systems that easily interface with your existing platform. Customers improve the accuracy of their inventory to over 99%.

Increase security or limit access  to stored inventory using electronic or mechanical systems that provide an audit trail of activity. Customers know who signed out items, and when, reducing errors and theft.

Improve workplace ergonomics by delivering all stored inventory to a safe, waist-high level in accordance with OSHA requirements. No more bending down to pick up heavy items, or reaching up to access bulky products stored above, or climbing ladders. All of the product is delivered to the same ergonomically-correct location every time.
