Handling heavy or burdensome loads? Discover Manut-LM's solutions.
Depending on what you have to lift, Manut-LM tailor-makes your device for handling bags, boxes, drums, coils, cans, wood panels or plastic or metal sheets… Each work station is analysed to design the most efficient handling assistance system.
Bag-handling operations often involve significant physical effort. If the movement is repeated over a long time, lifting of bags can cause musculoskeletal disorders and other occupational diseases.
Manut-LM designs and manufactures, in France, manual handling assistance solutions to provide relief for operators, in relation both to weight and to gestures and postures to be adopted.
Handling of boxes is a very common activity not only in logistics, but also in all sectors of activity involving the transport and handling of products. Lifting of boxes is an activity that is both time-consuming and physically painful.
Manual handling of loads can be problematic when operators are required to lift panels. Their dimension, volume or weight can cause MSD (musculoskeletal disorders) and lead to significant losses in productivity.
The handling of panels therefore often requires several persons for use on production lines. Many work stoppages are due to wrong sizing of the loads to be carried by the operator, which may result in injury and also damage the equipment.
The lifting and handling of drums, cans or barrels are difficult and painful operations. Whether upstream of the production line or in the distribution, the handling of these loads may be repetitive and hazardous to the health of operators.
Stacking of drums, or palleting of cans for loading trucks or logistical warehouses, involves continuous and repetitive lifting of heavy loads. The ergonomics of gestures and postures is difficult to respect in these cases, especially when the operator wants to maintain a high rate.
Many companies store documents, parts or agri-food substances in bins to optimize the space used and facilitate transport and handling. Manut-LM designs and manufactures, in France, solutions to help with manual handling of loads and thus reduce the weight of trays for operators.
