Greer, South Carolina – An applications-specific tool cart supports machine setup and changeovers for a switchgear manufacturer. Integral to the cart’s development was to optimize tool configurations and placement for both tools and other setup supplies.

The design of the cart allows the user to add only the accessories needed in order to save space and the ability to configure the cart for his operation. The cart is available as parts only for the user to design and build, as a kit, or fully assembled. In each instance the cart is ideal to promote job efficiency and to reinforce tool accountability.

The open design promotes easy visual management and there are no enclosed cabinets or drawers. The framework is built with 28mm blue pipe and black joints but a wide variety of color options are available. The cart has an integrated metal pegboard on two sides to allow for flexible tool storage and positioning, as well as a bottom horizontal shelf for bulk storage.

The cart features four angled height adjustable shelves with solid surfaces. The shelf surfaces ensure that anything placed on the shelf remains stationary during transport. The surface holds a variety of box sizes or loose parts and the design allows for the easy replacement or reduction of shelves.

The cart shown is 38” x 78” x 25” and comes with 4” urethane wheels and four large diameter casters – two that swivel for easy rolling and positioning. It has a load capacity of 400 lb and can be custom configured with the Creform system of pipe and joints.

Optional accessories include hanging hooks, clipboards, label holders, large diameter casters for rugged floor environments, ESD version for static sensitive areas, as well as 42mm pipe for heavy-duty applications.
