Stone Fabrication Material Handling
“Safety First” isn’t just about keeping your teams safe these days. Now more than ever, you REALLY have to consider your customer’s safety as well.
Fabricators, and artisans in general, who wish to enhance safety, productivity, and throughput in their production facilities need a variety of handling equipment for the slabs and worked material. Although not all of the material handled literally weigh tons, lifting the materials should be discouraged throughout the entire process.
To be an efficient and productive stone fabrication enterprise, you need to safely and quickly move, position, and store raw materials (slabs and blocks) and finished products.
This category contains items and devices designed to handle heavy sheets and slabs of stone, concrete, drywall, sheetrock, metal, and other materials It contains clamps, vacuum lifters, slab carts, and related material handling accessories that make a stone fabrication center safer, easier, and faster.
Handling slabs and workpieces is one of the most hazardous operations carried out in the stone industry. Workpieces can be incredibly heavy.
Fabricator center operators and employees must be properly trained for their tasks.
The most fundamental rule when working with marble or granite slabs is simple: Stay clear of and slab “fall zone,” i.e., the area in front of or behind a vertically-stored slab being raised by a lifting device.
