A place for every tool on Creform cart

The Creform Corp. tool exchange cart for consumer products manufacturers is designed to optimize tool organization, accessibility, and mobility within the production environment and provides an efficient solution for tool exchanges during production line changeovers or maintenance operations.

Creform tool cartThe cart, with dimensions of 46" W x 22" L x 62” H, features a work surface made of one-inch-thick wood that provides a sturdy platform for various projects. It is also equipped with a pull-out drawer system that contains a custom fabricated wood surface. In this application, multiple sized holes were drilled to create storage locations for various sized tools.

Above the work surface is a rectangular area (see red) that allows the opportunity to mount various types of information/applications, whether it be a peg board, work instructions or tool organization.

The cart includes four total lock 4" casters to provide stability once the cart is in place. However, its lightweight construction, smooth rolling casters and ergonomic handle ensures easy maneuverability. The tool exchange cart includes built-in locking mechanisms, ensuring the safe and secure transportation of tools between workstations or across the production floor. This feature helps minimize the risk of tool damage or loss.

The design that was developed provides the optimal size, configuration and tool placement as well as assembly parts and supplies. Further, the modular design allows the manufacturer to add only the accessories needed to save space. The cart, built with design input from both the manufacturer and Creform, helps promote efficiency and reinforces tool accountability – another way of saying there is a place for everything and everything in its place.

The cart’s framework is built with ESD 28 mm “white gray” colored plastic-coated steel pipe and clamped together with nickel metal joints. Although the cart pictured is shown in white gray, a wide variety of pipe color options are available and multiple colors can be used per cart, or even per level for department or product identification. Carts can also be built with 42 mm components for heavy-duty applications.

Accessories include hooks, labels, as well as writing surfaces with clip boards to name a few. Creform carts are available as a kit, assembled structure or in component form for a complete DIY solution.
