If you operate an up and coming manufacturing facility there will come a point where off the shelf industrial furniture solutions that used to be cost effective start to impose additional costs. These additional costs can result from things such as ergonomic-related accidents and the added expense of an inefficient production line. That’s when it’s time to upgrade to RDM’s industrial furniture solutions that are tailor made for your specific business needs. RDM is experienced in providing user-specific solutions, which may include a few option suggestions you may not have considered.
An excellent example is the ball transfer table. Ball transfer systems ease the movement of heavy materials across a production line. Even when upper body strength is a prerequisite in your shop, using raw strength to move products around usually results in delays due to fatigue, traffic jams on the production line, damaged materials, and/or even workplace injuries.
A full scale pneumatic ball transfer system is essentially a set of rolling spheres that can be raised and lowered as needed. There are systems available with only partial area ball transfer functionality as well. With this system, you can easily slide an item from your main roller line across the ball transfer station and freely rotate and adjust it until you need apply traction by lowering the balls. At this point, you can set the system to hold the item in place, do what you need to do, and then raise the balls to transfer the item again across the production line. Fixed ball transfer tops (most economical) are also available…
