Creform Corporation (Greer, SC) has designed and produced a cantilevered peg cart created for an auto parts manufacturer that handles batches of uncommonly shaped parts. As the cart can handle parts placed on both sides, the open design allows all the parts to be visible which enhances visual inventory and accessibility. It is also particularly useful when handling a mixture of parts.
Each of the four shelves of the cart feature two pegs or pins that extend out both sides to hold the parts securely and safely. The positioning of the pegs allows parts to be held apart from one another which minimizes the chance of damage. Further, all pegs are covered with a vinyl sleeve to provide further protection. The cart shown has overall dimensions of 41" L x 53" W x 63" H. The extra width provides for a stable base, while the base extends 2 in. past the largest part to further protect the parts from damage. It is designed to hold up to 250 lb, though higher capacities and custom cart configurations are possible.
