Materials Handling Equipment

Materials Handling is a catch phrase that covers a wide swath of industrial distribution. A Plus Warehouse is a national material handling dealer. We consider Material Handling equipment to be any equipment that comes in contact with a product that helps to move or store that product. A material handling system is when more than one item is being used in a system format.

A great example of material handling system would be the typical shipping dock. The product being shipped is stored on industrial pallet racks. The shipping clerk uses a lift truck to pull a skid of product from the rack and bring it to the ground. The clerk then loads the pallet onto a manual or automatic pallet truck, and rolls the product to his semiautomatic stretch wrap machine. After the pallet is wrapped, it is moved to a floor scale. The next step would be the clerk filling out his shipping documentation on his shippers desk, and loading the pallet with the use of his dock plate onto a truck.

In the above case, the following items are part of the integrated industrial material handling system: Pallet Racks, Lift Truck, Pallet Truck, Stretch Wrap Machine, Floor Scale, Shippers Desk, Dock Plate. A Plus Warehouse sells and stocks each of these material handling equipments.

Material handling goes way beyond the example above. Some materials handling system include hoist. A hoisting system can include a jib or gantry crane, powered or hand hoists, and of course the hoist trolly, and end stop. We also sell under the hook devices such as spreaders, coil grabbers, skid lifters, and let's not forget the ever handy hoist sling. Some materials handling people are conveyor centric.

The most extreme materials handling that folks experience is container handling. A Plus Warehouse does not get involved in container handling, but it a site to see if you ever get to one of our ports. A 40,000 pound container is grabbed by an overhead gantry and stripped off its container ship in a matter of minutes. A good deal of the products we use in the US comes through our ports quickly thanks to a skilled labor pool on the docks, and a highly automated material handling system. This country's import/export material handling system is a marvel of modern technology.
