Boost Productivity with Flexible, Portable Carton Flow Work Cells

If there’s one constant in manufacturing and process planning it’s the fact that things change, constantly. A company’s ability to respond to production shifts and assembly change-overs quickly, and with some level of “on-the-fly” flexibility, has a direct impact on production output and ROI.

Mallard’s Carton Flow Work Cells are a cost-effective solution for handling process shifts. Carton flow work cells are mobile, ergonomic work stations designed to be flexible for easy SKU or shelf changes. Work cells can be moved where and when they’re needed for organized FIFO parts storage and assembly set-up. They are ideal for short run manufacturing, light assembly, automotive and small parts packaging.

Mallard Dyna-Flo, Dyna-Flo (HD) and Cart-Trak carton flow tracks can be integrated into the work cell… depending on carton specifications. Shelves have infinite vertical adjustability to accommodate frequent SKU changes.

The carton flow work cell comes equipped with a steel-framed tow assembly for fast and easy relocation. Forklift operators can quickly transport work cells where needed vs. manually pushing the wheeled carts from station to station. Even better, the tow attachments can tow several work cells in a series.
