Creform Intros Versatile Cantilevered Arm Cart
Versatile cantilevered arm cart.
Greer, SC — The new Cantilevered Arm Cart from Creform Corporation provides a versatile, cost-effective and ergonomic solution to many parts storage, transport and presentation challenges. It has two levels of sturdy cantilevered arms that can be used as shelves to support long parts. And for parts that have large internal openings, the arms extend through those openings for secure transport. By handling the part directly, there is no packaging to deal with, which improves operator efficiency and reduces waste.

The bottom frame of the load/unload side of the cart has an opening so that associates using the cart can literally step in where the parts are stored. This offers an ergonomic advantage since minimal reaching is required and workers can be properly positioned to handle heavy loads. The inherently open design of the cart lets users see through the structure for safe transport. This also makes it easy to visually inventory the contents of the cart from either side.

Each of the cart's two levels can be repositioned, or the whole cart can be customized with only simple tools because the cart is created using the company's heavy-duty 42mm pipe for high loading capacity. The pipe is part of the Creform System of plastic coated steel pipes, joints and accessories that allows users to customize structures for specific applications using only simple tools. Various color options along with additional components allow users to customize carts further with hooks, label holders, shelves to handle small parts, etc. The carts can also be configured using static protective ESD pipes and joints for conveyance of sensitive electronics.

The company offers the Cantilevered Arm Cart as a kit with components ready for user assembly, or as a completed, assembled structure. It has a 44 x 52-in. footprint with a capacity of 425 pounds, though higher capacities, cart sizes and configurations are possible.

The new cart is equipped with four large 5-in. diameter casters with urethane wheels for easy, stable and safe rolling. Two fixed casters provide easy directional control and two swivel casters have brakes for secure positioning.

The cart can be outfitted with a hitch for towing or, with the addition of a bolt-on AGC unit, turned into a cost-effective and rapidly deployed AGV. The company's AGVs are low-cost and non-interruptive with no need to dig up floors because the vehicles follow an adhesive-backed magnetic tape guidepath.
