MATERIAL HANDLING

Introduction to Our Industrial Material Handling Equipment

Material Handling equipment is widely used in a variety of industries to help workers transport, lift and carry heavy items. Not only does it improve safety in the workplace, but it also helps to increase workplace productivity. At Equip2Go, our material handling products include lifters, stackers, electric walkie stackers, scissor lifting tables, pallet jacks, conveyors, drum handling trolleys, pallet levellers and forklift attachments.

 

Material Handling Uses

While predominantly used in warehouses and factories, lifting and handling equipment can be found in use in many industrial applications. For example, lifting equipment such as lifting trolleys, pallet stackers and pallet lifters can function as store room scissor lifts, shipping facility scissor lifts, supermarket scissor lifts, loading dock scissor lifts, hospital stackers and laboratory stackers. Furthermore, conveyors are often used in transport, distribution and container unloading industries and can function as warehouse conveyors, factory conveyors, airport conveyors and food processing conveyors.

 

What to Consider When Choosing a Material Handling Product

When choosing manual handling equipment for your workplace, load capacity, lifting height, fork length, platform size, degree rotation and remote powering systems are all things to keep in mind, where applicable. For example, our FP0415 Platform Stacker can lift up to 1500mm high, while in terms of load capacity, our TG100 Large Table Scissor Lift can support up to 1000kg. Moreover, pallet trucks like our 685mm Wide Pallet Jack / Pallet Truck have a fork length of 1150mm, and our HIW4 Lift Table has a platform size of 1300mm x 800mm. Additionally, our NBF35 Barrel Tilting Trolley has an 80 degree rotation for handling steel drums, and some products like our HTFU Electric Lift Table are operated with a remote power system and control box, with Up, Down and Emergency buttons. Product dimensions and specifications are all significant things to consider as using the right equipment for the right applications can help prevent workplace injuries.
Furthermore, if you require equipment that is suitable for wet and/or harsh conditions, we have stainless steel and galvanised material handling products that are ideal for these environments. Examples include our TF50S Stainless Steel Scissor Lift and our 685mm Wide Galvanised Pallet Jack. Moreover, if you are looking for a stationary scissor lift, try our HTFG Electric Lift Table, whereas if you require a portable scissor lift, a movable scissor lift like our TFD70 Double Scissor Lift will do the job. Additionally, some products like our MER35 Aerial Work Platform Trolley Duct Lifter are able to have their legs folded up, allowing for convenient storage in environments that need to save space. These are all things to consider when choosing a material handling product.

 

Our Material Handling Safety Features

Our pallet handling equipment allows your workplace to have better security and stability when lifting, lowering and moving loads. An example of our safety features is the entry and exit roller on our pallet jacks that prevents physical exertion of the operator and protects the load roller and pallet. Additionally, our PLG1C Spring Actuated Pallet Leveller dramatically reduces the effort required to palletise goods and as such, it provides one of the safest ways to preserve workers’ backs.
Even with these safety features, it is important to prioritise your safety when using material handling equipment. Since improper or excessive use can lead to musculoskeletal injuries, you should always ensure that your workers are properly trained on how to use handling and lifting equipment.

Our selection of material handling equipment helps enhance workplace safety and productivity. We deliver throughout Australia, with our head office situated in Dandenong South, Victoria, and further sales and warehousing operations located in Campbellfield (VIC), Wetherill Park (NSW), Canning Vale (WA) and Yatala (QLD).
