In the beverage industry, material handling equipment is critical for protecting products while limiting manual work — and if your operation uses forklifts to handle fruits, hops, or other materials, you understand the importance of choosing the right tool for the job.
The electric vehicle (EV) charging industry could be worth up to $15 billion per year by 2030, says McKinsey. In 2023, meanwhile, the U.S. Bipartisan Infrastructure Law began the process of dispersing $7.5 billion in federal funding to build a national EV charging network.
In 2021, the food manufacturing industry employed more than 15 percent of all manufacturing workers. That was 1.7 million people — and many of those workers faced injury risks on the job.
In food warehouses, ergonomics are a crucial consideration. Workers that regularly move products and materials have a high risk of developing musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) — even when the weight of the load is fairly limited.
Hydrogen fluoride (HF) — hydrofluoric acid — is commonly used to manufacture plastics, electrical compounds, refrigerants, and a wide range of other products.
In its pure form, it’s a clear, colorless, and corrosive liquid, and it can be extremely hazardous to workers: The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) limits permissible HF exposure to 3 parts per million (ppm) averaged over an 8-hour work shift.
Commercial trash cans might not be the most exciting purchase, but they play an essential role in keeping your facility productive and clean.
To that end, you’ll need waste management products that are suited to your operation. Solus Group provides two excellent options: The Cascade ICON and Cascade STERLING series.
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) develops standards for electrical products, including charging equipment for electric vehicles (EVs). If you’re shopping for an EV charger, odds are you’ll run into claims about at least one of these standards: NEMA 4.
Manual wrapping requires awkward positioning, stretching, and bending, which can raise the risk of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). A stretch wrap turntable makes the job much less difficult (and much more efficient).
In operations that depend on package handling or parcel distribution, efficiency is key — and effective automation is vital for optimizing throughput.
No electric vehicle (EV) charging station is complete without a cable management system. These accessories keep cables off the ground, so cars don’t run — and people don’t trip — over them. Cable management tools also make it more convenient to plug in vehicles: No hand-coiling or uncoiling necessary.
