PROCESS

Material Handling

Increased production speeds, quality, and shop safety with automated material handling equipment.

For decades, manufacturing processes were labor-intensive and hands-on at every stage of production. As the number of automated machines increases on the shop floor, material handling equipment and practices also become a crucial part of production.

There are many benefits to adding automated material handling solutions to your manufacturing process—such as increased efficiencies and accuracies as raw materials, semi-finished products, and finished products are moved and placed in precise locations on the production floor. Implementing material handling machinery can also improve safety, preventing accidents and injuries that could occur from manually transporting heavy materials, as well as minimizing the risk of product damage, and improving quality standards.

Stiles offers material handling solutions to meet your manufacturing goals.

Some of the current material handling technologies on the market include conveyors and lift systems, which speed the transfer of materials; swing arm panel feeders that ensure continuous production; and panel stackers, which can provide more storage and retrieval options. Fully automated stacking and de-stacking machines can easily handle input from multiple conveyors and trolleys, helping the entire manufacturing process run smoothly with little-to-no human interaction.

Stiles is pleased to bring you material handling solutions from leading manufacturers, including Homag Automation, Holzma, Q-System, Schmalz, System TM and more, keeping raw materials safe as they’re worked into finished products.
