We adhere to the below mentioned material handling principles for the design and development of our equipments.
1. Planning - All material handling should be the result of a deliberate plan where the needs, performance objectives and functional specification of the proposed methods are completely defined at the outset.
2. Standardization - Material handling methods, equipment, controls and software should be standardized within the limits of achieving overall performance objectives and without sacrificing needed flexibility, modularity and throughput anticipation of changing future requirements.
3. Work - Material handling work should be minimized without sacrificing productivity or the level of service required of the operation.
4. Ergonomic - Human capabilities and limitations must be recognized and respected in the design of material handling tasks and equipment to ensure safe and effective operations.
5. Unit load - Unit loads shall be appropriately sized and configured in a way which achieves the material flow and inventory objectives at each stage in the supply chain.
6. Space utilization - Effective and efficient use must be made of all avaialable space.
7. System - Material movement and storage activities should be fully integrated to form a coordinated, operational system which spans receiving, inspection, storage, production, assembly, packaging, unitizing, order selection, shipping, transportation and the handling of returns.
8. Automation - Material handling operations should be mechanized and/or automated where feasible to improve operational efficiency, increase responsiveness, improve consistency and predictability.
9. Environment - Environmental impact and energy consumption should be considered as criteria when designing or selecting alternative equipment and material handling systems.
10. Life cycle cost - A thorough economic analysis should account for the entire life cycle of all material handling equipment and resulting systems.
11. Energy - An analysis of the energy consumption of the material handling system and procedures should be done when choosing between different systems.
12. Simplification - Simplification of material handling by eliminating, reducing or combining unnecessary movements and equipments.
