Lean manufacturing requires elimination of waste. A simple kaizen event by numerous tool and die manufacturers quickly found that time spent waiting for a fork truck for a die setup was easily remedied with the Magline LiftPlus. One of the greatest challenges in the packaging industry, including manufacturing cells, is tool and die set. The challenge has been finding a mechanism that would lift the die to the required height, without the operator ever having to lift.
Technology innovator Magline, best known for two wheel hand trucks used in the beverage industry has solved the tool and die heavy lifting riddle with LiftPlus. Magline’s innovative LiftPlus, provides an all-in-one lift, transporter, and positioner. The LiftPlus is a workforce multiplier that kicks in productivity with no need for special training or licensing. The ergonomic answer to moving heavy rolls is found with the arbor attachment. The LiftPlus was designed for ease of use, higher productivity, and to keep workers on the job and free from injuries; lifting 350 pounds easily with an all-metal frame platform and a screw-driven lift that delivers smooth precision that hydraulics or chains just cannot match.
Andrea Horner, Magline’s vice president of marketing stated, “This powered product demonstrates our commitment to the manufacturing sector and those customers who requested a durable, ergonomic, and quality equipment to allow safe use and transport without wasting time waiting for fork lifts. The improved throughput and productivity is a direct results of time efficiencies achieved with the LiftPlus within the manufacturing cell where the dies need to be placed.”
