Engineering is obviously an important step in realizing your custom equipment, but don’t over-look manufacturing. Has the company built the products they’ve engineered? This is where trial and error takes place. This is where real world experience comes into play.
The phrase materials handling is a broad term with many meanings and involving many industries. Each industry has its own challenges when manufacturing, shipping, or storing product. Whether they are the manufacturer’s themselves, or are shipping and/or storing products for other manufacturer’s, their requirements for equipment to assist in building, storing or moving those items vary widely depending on the size, weight and nature of the product.
