Automated Heavy Material Handling Systems for Wellhead Valve Equipment storage
According to the National Safety Council, industries in the United States are losing more than $336 billion a year to workers' injuries and workers' compensation. In 2007 alone, 7 out of 100 workers in warehousing and storage suffered on-the-job injuries (Bureau of Labor Statistics). And this doesn't even include worker deaths, which places warehouse work in the top 100 deadliest jobs. Because of these statistics, it's important to have reliable automated heavy material handling systems, especially for wellhead valve equipment storage for oil field industries.
Material Handling Systems improving work safety
Automated heavy material handling systems improve worker safety and reduce costs associated with worker compensation claims. The shuttles can be integrated with overhead cranes and forklifts to load pallets, and the shuttle automatically vertically stores and retrieves loaded trays with the push of a button. Wellhead valves can easily be stored for tests and repairs without the need to put workers in danger. Since the vertical shuttle is completely automated, it eliminates the need for excessive lifting and bending, and also reduces the amount of walking required for workers since the wellhead valve equipment can be contained in one convenient machine.
