Several Ergo Bins available from Sitecraft have recently been trialled by a large national distribution company, producing excellent results.
The trials of the materials handling systems were held at different locations across the country to help reduce worker fatigue and increase productivity. The process involved the Ergo Bins being loaded with boxes and parcels by the operator of a conveyer and then taken to a processing station where another operator unpacked the boxes.
Prior to the introduction of Ergo Bins, the operator was required to constantly bend and pick up the boxes out of a bin or trolley and place them on the processing bench for unpacking and quality assessment.
After the introduction of Ergo Bin, the operators are no longer required to bend as these bins feature a rising base that keeps the product at a consistent and safe work height. The rising base can be quickly adjusted to handle different weights by means of an adjusting screw.
Key features of Ergo Bins:
- Top edge provides a comfortable handrail
- No exposed moving parts
- Recessed wheels for foot protection
- Rigid ABS panelling with tough zinc plated base for maintenance-free operation
- Ergonomic ‘lean-out’ design provides comfortable knee space and allows closer positioning to machines for loading and unloading
