Safe & Efficient Material Handling for the Woodworking Industry

Despite the availability of machinery that can literally do all of the heavy lifting for workers, many woodworking shops still have workers doing the heavy lifting manually. This presentation will look at common tasks in the woodworking industry that are typically performed manually but could be done quicker, safer and more efficiently than any manual lifting process. You will see how a twist of the grip, a pull of the trigger or a squeeze of the handle can lift hundreds of pounds while the worker merely guides the load to where it needs to go.

In this session, you will:

  • Gain an understanding of various manual lifting tasks in the WW industry
  • Gain an understanding of the Schmalz alternatives to manual lifting
  • See Schmalz Vacuum Automation Solutions for the WW industry
  • Learn how to connect with Schmalz at the AWFS Fair
