Storage Trolley for Lean Manufacturing

Excellent storage trolleys in the manufacturing sector

In this article we are showing you some of our latest storage trolleys made for the manufacturing sector.

BG Log has collaborated with manufacturing sectors of different origin, which need to handle on the production lines: cables, wires, ropes, coils, painted parts and some delicate materials.

The storage trolleys use simple tubular profiles on which the materials are placed and facilitate operators in identifying and picking up materials.

These types of trolleys have taken on an important role among our best solutions at the beginning of 2022 and we would like to show you some of our best trolleys.

This solution was designed to support 12 coils. This solution has been designed to support 12 reels, using slightly inclined tubular profiles, able to facilitate picking operations.

To meet the needs of our customers, we used stainless steel tubular profiles and ESD brackets.

The trolley is equipped with two handles, designed by our technical department, to meet the ergonomic needs within the factory and for easier handling.

This is also comes with 4 wheels, 2 of which with brakes, which allows you to move the trolley and lock it safely, once you have found the ideal position on the production lines.
