What is Material Handling Equipment?

Custom Material Handling Equipment can be the control, storage, movement, and protection of products, goods, and products throughout the manufacturing process.

Materials Handling can be used to increase output, control costs, and maximize productivity. It can be classified into the following categories: Industrial Carts, Work Positioners, Industrial Racks and Lift Tables.

Industrial Carts

Equipment used to move material from one location to another (e.g., between workplaces, between a loading dock and a storage area, etc.). 

Valley Custom Fabricators can manufacture custom industrial carts in a variety of designs and sizes for specific uses. All our custom industrial carts are ergonomically designed for comfort and ease of operation.

Whether you need a custom industrial cart with open shelving, utility cart with drawers, or a customized configuration that is part specific, we have you covered.

Here are some examples of our build capabilities:

  • Utility Carts
  • Dollie
  • Moving devices
  • Flat deck industrial carts
  • Two Tier Service Carts
  • Stock picker trucks
  • Ergo handled carts
  • Heavy duty cradle cart
  • Service carts
  • Platform trucks
  • Cantilever Carts
  • Tool and Maintenance Carts
  • Instrument Carts
  • Mobile Storage Cabinets
  • Security Cart and Truck
  • Bar / Pipe Transport Cart
  • Panel sheet cart
  • Trucks
  • A-frame rack cart
  • Multi tier stock cart
  • Platform carts
  • Portable carton cart
  • Easy Access Steel Stock Trucks
  • Steel Cantilever Stock Picker Truck

Work Positioners

Equipment used to handle material at a single location so that it's in the correct position for subsequent handling, machining, transport, or storage. Unlike transport equipment, custom work positioners are usually used for handling at a single workplace.

When work platforms, fixtures or build stands are preferred, Valley Box's custom fabrication department can accommodate your needs and requirements. Customized for a specific task, custom work positioners can prove cost effective in areas such as safety and factory throughput time-savings. A definite value added to your production line operation. 

Here are some examples of our build capabilities:

  • Stock picker
  • Hydraulic Post Tables
  • Work holding systems

Industrial Racks

Custom Materials Handling Equipment used for holding or buffering materials over a period of time (e.g. pallet racking, shelving and carts) is often referred to as a Custom Industrial Rack. Some storage equipment may include the transport of materials (e.g. or storage carousels).

Many of these products are often referred to as "catalog" items because they generally have globally accepted standards and are often sold as stock materials out of custom Materials Handling catalogs. However,  custom industrial equipment storage systems requirements do arise.

Here are some examples of our build capabilities: 

Lift Tables

Incorporating Custom Lift Tables into your facility can expedite and simplify your process of assembly operations.  These systems are often a combination of products integrated to one system.

For instance, a custom lift table would very commonly be used to hold or adjust positions of heavy materials at an ergonomically adjustable position creating easy access for packaging or to cohesively work in conjunction with machinery.
Here are some examples of our build capabilities:

  • Product Build Stands
  • Assembly Stands
  • Vibration Dampening
  • Shipping/Handling
