Creform Cart Optimized for Wire Assembly
Cart optimized for wire harnesses.
Greer, SC — The Creform System is a series of plastic coated pipes, metal (or plastic) joints for assembly, and an array of hardware accessories that aid in creating customized structures for individual applications. Virtually every use, situation and part handling application can be different, and every Creform structure can be tailored to fit the specific job needs.

Creform's subassembly and assembly line operations involving the installation of wiring and wire harnesses — has resulted in a cart/rack developed to prevent tangling and misidentification of components at the point-of-use assembly stations, while providing secure, safe transport throughout the facility, and offering superior, ergonomic part presentation.

The cart is compact, which along with its adaptive nature, allows it to be sized to fit in aisles and in close proximity to the workstation. The rack/cart also incorporates vertical hanging racks mounted to an indexable turntable having fixed rotation points. The number of hanging racks can be determined by the most efficient number of harnesses to be conveyed, and other factors such as the length of the harnesses. During transport, the turntable can be set into a secure position. Once at the assembly work point, the large cart casters are locked; the turntable is then rotated to the needed part position.

The cart was constructed using the company's metal joint components, mechanical clamping via threaded fastener, resulting in reuse if a need for a cart design changes. Also selected was high visibility orange colored pipe to enhance awareness of the structures and help reduce collisions; other colors are also available.
