Our latest modular kitting trolleys for the metal industry

Modular and flexible kitting trolleys three types of solutions to optimise kitting operations our kitting trolleys have become increasingly popular solutions

BG Log UK has completed a great order for modular and flexible kitting trolleys for the metalworking industry.
Our customer required trolleys capable of safely and ergonomically handle the components and materials needed for assembly, and our engineering department designed three types of solutions to optimise kitting operations.

In fact, manufacturing companies are experiencing several difficulties in terms of space management, in order to face with the increased customisation of products required by the market and with increasingly shorter life cycles.

In order to be able to store and transport several different products at the same time, our kitting trolleys have become increasingly popular solutions in warehouses and production environments.

Specifically, we have designed and manufactured three types of solutions:

  • Shelved trolley with wire slides
  • Kitting trolley with racks
  • 5-shelves trolley

All solutions were assembled with tubular steel profiles, covered in blue ABS, to meet the specific brand and image requirements of the customer.
BG Log UK is the manufacturer of the tubular systems, and the colour can be customised to meet your needs.

Let’s take a closer look at the three types of trolley.

The shelf trolleys with wire slides are equipped with 8 levels, each of which can hold 5 boxes, for a total of 40, so that they can store the exact quantity of material required for the production process, eliminating one of the main wastes, overproduction.
The application of galvanised chutes is not a coincidence, they will ensure easy access to the materials, safe and ergonomic, avoiding possible injuries.
To allow easy, safe and ergonomic handling, the solution is equipped with pivoting wheels, two of which are fixed, two with brakes and two handles, so that the operator can transport it along the production lines and stop it once the ideal position has been found.

Each shelf also has kanban clips, so that tags can be attached and it is easier to locate the components, without wasting time searching for the material.

This kitting trolley, on the other hand, is ideal for transporting long parts needed for assembly.
The rack, made of tubular profiles and polycarbonate honeycomb separators, will allow materials to be delivered to operators in an organised and immediately visible manner, reducing the time taken to find the material.

This solution will enable our customer to have a more dynamic supply chain, a reduction in errors and inefficiencies, greater productivity and better use of warehouse space.
In addition, it has two grey melamine faced shelves, capable of handling up to 70kg, and 4 wheels, 2 of which are pivoting with brakes and two fixed.

Finally, the 5-shelf trolleys are also easy for your operators to manoeuvre, thanks to two ergonomically high handles.
The shelves are made of MDF, covered with steel plates, to meet our customer’s material requirements. In addition, for safe handling, we have fitted each table top with fall prevention tubes.
