manufacturing firm is a fast growing company that, like
most of us, was quickly running out of floor space.
They wondered if they could take some existing horizontal
production and convert it to vertical production.
Together we designed a triple deck vertical (Prest)
manufacturing system which saved 3,000 square feet of
floor space. The deck capacity was designed at 125
psf (pounds per square foot) with specific 'equipment
areas' bolstered to accommodate 4 ton machines. Monorail
'high speed' hoist cranes (by Harrington) were incorporated
to facilitate lifting 2 tons each of raw materials to
the top level for manufacturing.
This project afforded instant payback for our customer
(in floor space savings) as well as streamlining an
already efficient manufacturing method by utilizing
gravity to speed up their manufacturing process.
