Mate­r­i­al Han­dling That Pays Off

A tool­box is the eas­i­est way to han­dle mate­r­i­al. A box that pro­vides the nec­es­sary flex­i­bil­i­ty and vari­abil­i­ty will make the tools eas­i­er to trans­port and faster to access. If, how­ev­er, they are not prop­er­ly cleared away after use, their ben­e­fit is reduced.

This already demon­strates the advan­tages of a sys­tem that must, admit­ted­ly, be han­dled cor­rect­ly. But mate­r­i­al han­dling sys­tems are much more than just upscaled tool­box­es. When used cor­rect­ly, these sys­tems can make com­pa­ny process­es eas­i­er and safer, and increase pro­duc­tiv­i­ty. They save on stor­age space or can be used direct­ly as buffer stor­age facil­i­ties. Giv­en the com­bi­na­tion of prac­ti­cal and finan­cial ben­e­fit, you would think mate­r­i­al han­dling sys­tems – and the tar­get­ed use there­of – would be high­ly preva­lent. But the real­i­ty is that peo­ple tend to trans­port their mate­ri­als using vehi­cles con­fig­ured to per­son­alised needs, home­made or pur­chased solu­tions which, while not 100% suit­able, are made as suit­able as pos­si­ble. In oth­er words, com­pro­mis­es are made.
This is pri­mar­i­ly due to the fact that acute demand often takes greater pri­or­i­ty over struc­tur­ing all com­po­nents sys­tem­at­i­cal­ly. And of course users focus on spe­cif­ic tasks, which in turn results in stand-alone solu­tions.
The gen­er­al require­ments for mate­r­i­al-han­dling sys­tems are not too shab­by: Reli­a­bil­i­ty and load-bear­ing capac­i­ty. Mobil­i­ty and flex­i­bil­i­ty. Plus great val­ue for mon­ey.
Incor­po­rat­ing the sys­tems approach in view of this is very chal­leng­ing. But it is possible.

The answer to all of the above can be sum­marised in one word: SIMPLY.

SIMPLY. Logistic introduces its material handling system to help transport europallet and industrial pallet.

SIMPLY. Mate­r­i­al Han­dling Sys­tem: More than a mate­r­i­al carrier 

A provider of mate­r­i­al-han­dling sys­tems that offer even more. They’re more than mate­r­i­al car­ri­ers, impro­vi­sa­tions or stand-alone solu­tions that can no longer even be used in the neigh­bour­ing workshop. 

The idea behind the SIMPLY. mate­r­i­al-han­dling sys­tems is not to offer patent for­mu­lae, but rather always a basis. These can then be indi­vid­u­al­ly expand­ed, but still remain with­in a sys­tem­at­ic frame­work. What this looks like is in turn mea­sured on a series of para­me­ters. For exam­ple, a sys­tem should also always be a process com­po­nent. That means not buy­ing a fin­ished prod­uct or some­thing off the shelf – but rather first deter­min­ing what the prod­uct must be able to offer, which work stage it is used in, and where. All in com­bi­na­tion with oth­er sys­tem com­po­nents. A prin­ci­ple that’s easy to under­stand. No one goes into a shop just to buy­ing “some­thing to wear”; they have some­thing spe­cif­ic in mind, such as a robust casu­al jack­et to match their favourite pullover and jeans. And the next aspect it just as log­i­cal: Fol­low­ing standards. 

SIMPLY. Mate­r­i­al Han­dling Sys­tem: For Euro-pal­let Conveyor

A Euro-pal­let con­vey­or is just one exam­ple. Clear­ly. In this case, SIMPLY. is geared around the dimen­sions for the pal­lets or pal­let cages. But stan­dards also mean offer­ing a draw­bar with fork sock­ets for all con­ven­tion­al indus­tri­al trucks.

And which can thus trans­form into a loco­mo­tive set at the rai­l­yard in the blink of an eye. Opti­mum usage of space is of course also stan­dard. If, in the case of a Euro-pal­let con­vey­or, the clear­ance width is equal to the usable width, the “stan­dard” sys­tem helps cre­ate use­ful space. SIMPLY. sim­i­lar­ly places great empha­sis on com­pat­i­bil­i­ty. Indus­tri­al plat­form con­vey­ors don’t just trans­port sheet-met­al, plas­tic, lasered or weld­ed parts; they also trans­port the SIMPLY. ware­house-pal­let sys­tem.
This also reflects oth­er aspects of a func­tion­ing sys­tem: Prac­ti­cal­i­ty and log­i­cal handling.

SIMPLY. Mate­r­i­al Han­dling Sys­tem: For Indus­tri­al Pal­let Conveyor

An indus­tri­al pal­let, for exam­ple, will be vir­tu­al­ly use­less if it can’t be moved where it needs to go. And even more so if it can’t with­stand any­thing. This is when we see the impor­tance of the fact that SIMPLY. did not start out as a man­u­fac­tur­er of mate­r­i­al-han­dling sys­tems. The com­pa­ny was orig­i­nal­ly designed to build flood-pro­tec­tion sys­tems. All sys­tem com­po­nents were thus devel­oped based on prac­ti­cal require­ments, with the option of scal­ing them for oth­er tasks at any time.

Regard­less of the pur­pose, this ini­tial­ly means build­ing some­thing that’s robust and durable. Which is why the indus­tri­al plat­form con­vey­ors, indus­tri­al pal­lets and Euro-pal­let con­vey­ors are made from sol­id steel and are hot-dip gal­vanised. This makes them resis­tant to even rough han­dling, enables them to bear heavy loads, and of course be weath­er­proof. And unlike alu­mini­um designs, con­tact cor­ro­sion is not an issue either. You get vari­abil­i­ty instead. As such, Euro-pal­let con­vey­ors can also be equipped with a pal­let-stack­ing sys­tem. It can be stored wher­ev­er there is space; if nec­es­sary even in a shel­tered cor­ner of the yard, serv­ing as a col­lec­tive stor­age facil­i­ty as part of the deposit return sys­tem. If the con­vey­or is full, it can be trans­port­ed along by any indus­tri­al truck. Its draw­bar has a fork sock­et, and is ful­ly swiv­el-mount­ed, mak­ing it extreme­ly agile. It is intend­ed less for yards and more as a way of han­dling the cramped con­di­tions of a work­shop or ware­house. After all, the vehi­cle can also accom­mo­date pal­let cages, and thus also serve as a buffer stor­age facil­i­ty – par­tic­u­lar­ly as it is no wider than the pal­let cage itself, and sev­er­al of them can thus be placed next to one anoth­er to save space.
The same applies to indus­tri­al plat­form con­vey­ors indi­vid­u­al­ly equipped with non-slip mats or ware­house-pal­let sys­tems. When com­bined with indus­tri­al pal­lets, this auto­mat­i­cal­ly results in a wide range of options for work preparation.
