WIP (Work in Progress) Carts/Assembly Racks

WIP — What Is Work in Progress and Assembly Line Storage?

Work in Progress carts are designed to help you easily get unfinished materials from one part of the production process to another. They are critical for improving workflow and protecting and storing parts as they go from one part of the assembly line or manufacturing process to another. Heavy and unwieldy items, such as a Mack truck engine, can be extremely difficult to transport, but the right WIP carts make it much easier and safer. Summit Storage offers multiple options for transporting your materials more easily. We can even add castors on the bottom of racks.

We can also custom-fabricate a reusable prototype to test with your specific materials for use in the assembly process. If the prototype meets your satisfaction, we will then produce your carts. Rather than, for example, paying for a wooden skid plus disposal fees every time you want to move materials through your production process, Summit Storage’s equipment carts fabrication process will create just the right cart for you once, so you can use them for transportation, storage or shipping as needed.

Assembly Line Racks

Assembly line racks are storage containers that can be placed on an assembly line and worked on directly. These racks can improve efficiency dramatically by reducing the likelihood of damaging parts and by making it easier for assembly line workers to work on a part. Under normal circumstances, a worker may have to bend over to work on a part on an assembly line. A custom-made assembly line rack can lift the part up to eye level for easy access. These can double as shipping containers if necessary.
