Power-Driven High Density Shelving for Storing Maintenance Parts and Tools
A post office distribution center moved into a new building that was allocated less space for its supply room. To solve the space problem, they invested in Power-Driven High Density Shelving for storing maintenance parts and tools. The high density shelving utilized existing cabinets for parts and tool storage and specially designed pegboards for hanging replacement belts. The Power-Driven High Density Shelving also increased efficiencies and employee productivity.
Problems the Post Office Distribution Center Faced Storing Maintenance Parts and Tools
To handle an increase in mail, the post office distribution center changed from manual to automated sorting. Although the automation has virtually eliminated the need for people in processing, it has greatly increased the reliance on people in a maintenance function and an increase in the amount of parts that need to be kept on-site and readily available. In conjunction, after the investment in a new building and machinery the size of the supply room used for storing maintenance parts and tools was significantly reduced.
Power-Driven High Density Shelving Increases Efficiencies to Solve Space Problems
Because the Power-Driven High Density Shelving fits the parts and tools in a compact space, the center was able to design a space close to the processing floor that makes it more organized and efficient. The maintenance technicians are able to find items quickly and respond to maintenance issues in a timely manner. This minimizes machine down time and helps to reduce the interruption of mail processing.
The Power-Driven High Density Shelving was also flexible in design and was configured to house replacement belts the way the maintenance crew required. The belts are stored ergonomically and are easy to view, locate, and reach. In addition, the Power-Driven High Density Shelving was designed to house existing cabinets, which helped the post office distribution center keep costs down.
