JIB CRANES IMPROVE MANUFACTURING WORKFLOW

If you feel your manufacturing workflow has room for improvement, it can be worthwhile to stand back and assess whether there might be a bottleneck that is affecting other parts of the process.

In some cases, it may be easy to identify one particular area that could be made more efficient. And if the delay is coming from physically moving items from one space to another repetitively, a jib crane can offer a cost-effective solution.

Bomac reports that some customers have made huge gains in productivity by using a jib to lift and move bulky, awkward and heavy items, or lighter items that needed to be moved regularly and repetitively. A lifting device like this also improves safety and protects employees from injury.

Improved staff morale naturally follows improvements made in workflow and safety. And that will also feed in to improved productivity. Empowering workers with the right tools in the right part of the workflow is definitely a win-win decision.

Most standard Altrac jib cranes are priced below $20,000, and so are eligible for full relief under the Federal Government’s Instant Asset Write Off Scheme. However, to claim for this year, assets must be ordered and installed by 30th June 2019.
