Zero-Zone Inc. located in North Prairie, Wisconsin builds standing store coolers and freezers for grocery and convenience stores. They built these units in “cases” that are 2, 3, 4, or 5 doors wide. They are adding another production line because the customer is experiencing increase demand for more orders of these cases.
The Autoquip Solution
The customer previously purchased pairs of our American Compact Lift that provided them an adjustable worktable to position the varying sizes of the display cases for assembly work. The lifts are controlled by one single control that operates the lifts in tandem to carefully raise the cases in a seamless motion.
Because of their previous success using these types of lifts, the customer knew exactly what would work for them in their new production line. These small lift tables can be customized to fit any application and in this case the customer required options for portability and adjustable controls.
- A portable base frame for easy transport and maneuverability.
- Single control switch, which allows the lifts to operate in tandem, or with the option of operating one independently.
- Foot activated floor lock – to lock in place once the lifts are adjusted to accommodate the different sizes of the display cases.
The Solution Benefits
Because the customer had great success with the Compact Lift previously, and they knew exactly what they needed for this new order, Autoquip was able to reduce standard lead times and ship the equipment to the customer in a shorten period which will help them get up and running sooner than anticipated.
