Optimum Handling Solutions Pal-evators have been used to overcome a materials handling issue at a packaging & paper supplier. The materials handling issue was the bending, reaching & twisting when workers were stacking boxes of paper & packaging materials for dispatch. Conveyors were used to bring various boxes of paper weighing up to 15kg each into the dispatch area, where the sorting of each box type on to pallets was done manually, a forklift would then load the pallets onto transport.
A trial of the Pal-evator scissor lift was suggested to determine the manual handling advantage. The benefits of using the Pal-evator scissor lifts resulted in a rise in production. The work environment was improved due to the reduction in fatigue and injury from the reduced effort required at the dispatch point.
