Creform Workstation Provides Better Space Utilization on Production Floor Space

Wednesday, April 17, 2024

Greer, SC—Creform Corporation, a manufacturer of unique products for the design and building of material handling structures and automated guided vehicles has developed a  mobile sub-assembly workstation that helps an auto parts supplier enhance the space utilization on its production floor. The workstation is flexible and adaptable to different production needs.
The mobile assembly station features Creform skate wheel conveyors on three supply levels and one return level for product presentation and flow.  Lane dividers are located on the second and third levels to organize the boxes to a specific lane. Each of the flow levels can be repositioned with only simple tools and with the stair-stepped design, each level can be raised or lowered without changing the length of the conveyor.
At the front of the workstation is a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) work surface, designed for assembling components in process. This setup allows workers to concentrate on details, ensuring better quality control. Additionally, the sub-assembly station offers valuable training opportunities for new employees, allowing them to learn essential skills in a controlled environment by focusing on specific tasks or components.
Due to the flexibility of the Creform system of pipe and joints, the custom configurable workstation, with dimensions of  30" W x 63" L x 63" H, allows the manufacturer to optimize its floor space. The workstation is designed to hold up to 1500 lb. and features four swivel lock casters and two fixed casters in the center both for structure stability and mobility.
It is built with black plastic-coated steel pipe and black plated metal joints. The structure is built with the 28mm system of pipe and joints.  However, higher capacity and and configurations are possible with Creform’s 42mm product line.  The 42mm product line integrates seamlessly with the 28mm system if needed or can be a stand-alone system.
Creform skate wheel conveyors are sturdy and made with durable materials to ensure a robust and long-lasting flow rack.  Designed to withstand the demands of the toughest industrial environments.
Assembled structures are a great starting point for any user. After delivery and introduction, a user can take advantage of Creform’s flexibility by changing the station’s configuration and features to best match the needs of its production process and associates.
Useful accessories for such a station include overhead light, computer screen, shelves, additional flow lanes, drawers, information sheet holders, label holders, tool storage, and hooks to hang tools and supplies. All Creform workstations can be configured for ESD components when sensitive electronics need to be protected. Available as a kit or an assembled structure or in the component form for a complete DIY solution.
Creform provides solutions for dynamic material handling needs in the ever-evolving landscape of manufacturing. As pioneers in adaptive systems, the company empowers companies to seamlessly integrate continuous improvement methodologies like Kaizen, 5S, and lean manufacturing principles.  From robust pipe and joint structures to gravity roller conveyors and cutting-edge AGV technology, Creform equips users with the tools to optimize efficiency across various applications. Whether it's streamlining workflow with flow racks and workstations or enhancing mobility with agile carts and AGVs, the company’s solutions are tailored to elevate your operational performance.
