  2. 2. What is Material Handling? “Efficient short-distance movement ofgoods that usually takes place within the confines of a building such as a plant ora warehouse or between a building and a transportation agency. ” Material Handling Equipment
  3. 3. Material Handling Dimensions• Movement• Time• Quantity• Space
  4. 4. Why Material Handling?• improves efficiency• Improves productivity• Maximize profits• Competitive edge
  5. 5. The most successful brands in the world usesmaterial handling and logistic solutions to gaincompetitive edge Toyota Wal-Mart Disney Coca Cola NASA John Deere Mitsubishi Pepsi-Cola
  6. 6. Where MHE is utilized• Warehouses• Manufacturing Plants• Ports• Airports
  7. 7. Baggage Handling in an Air Port
  8. 8. Material Handling Equipment• Material handling equipment (MHE) is used for the movement , storage ,protection, consumption and disposal of materials within a facility or at a site.
  9. 9. Types of material handling equipment• Transport Equipment• Positioning Equipment• Unit Load Formation Equipment• Storage Equipment• Identification and Control Equipment Ref: http://www.ise.ncsu.edu/kay/mhetax/index.htm
  10. 10. Transport Equipment• These equipment are used to move materials from one location to other
  11. 11. Conveyers• Equipment used to move materials over a fixed path between specific points
  12. 12. Types of Conveyers• Mainly there are about 20 types of conveyers  Belt conveyers  Chute conveyers  Wheel conveyers  Roller conveyers  Chain conveyers  Slat conveyers  Flat belt conveyers  Magnetic belt conveyers  Vertical conveyers
  13. 13. conveyers are used• When material is to be moved frequently between specific points• To move materials over a fixed path• When there is a sufficient flow volume to justify the fixed conveyor investment
  14. 14. Cranes• Equipment used to move materials over variable paths within a restricted area.
  15. 15. Types of cranes• Jib cranes• Bridge cranes• Gantry cranes• Stacker cranes
  16. 16. Industrial Trucks• Equipment used to move materials over variable paths, with no restrictions on the area covered by the movement
  17. 17. Types of industrial trucks• Hand Truck• Pallet Jack• Walkie Stacker
  18. 18. • Counterbalanced lift truck• Narrow-Aisle reach truck
  19. 19. Fork Lifts• most common equipment in material handling
  20. 20. Unit Load Formation Equipment• Unit load formation equipment used to restrict materials so that they maintain their integrity when handled a single load during transport and for storage
  21. 21. Pallets 48 x 40 in. pallet is most popular in US 1200 x 800 mm "Euro-Pallet" is the standard pallet in Europe is a flat transport structure that supports goods in a stable fashion while being lifted by a forklift, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pallet
  22. 22. Pallet BoxesReusable container used to unitize andprotect loose items for fork/platformtruck handling

  25. 25. Drive-In Rack
  26. 26. Flow-Through Rack
  27. 27. Push-Back Rack
  28. 28. Identification and Control EquipmentIdentification and control equipment is used to collectand communicate the information that is used tocoordinate the flow of materials within a facility andbetween a facility and its suppliers and customers. Ref: http://logistic- mhe.blogspot.com/2008/01/identification- and-control-equipment.html
  29. 29. Bar Codes• Unique bar/space patterns represent various alphanumeric characters.• Bar code system consists of bar code label, bar code scanner, and bar code printer.• Contact bar code scanners use pen or wand to read labels.• Non-contact bar code scanners include fixed beam, moving beam, and omni-directional beam.• 1-D codes are most common; 2-D codes enable much greater data storage capability.
  30. 30. Bar codes and scannersContact Scanner Non contact scanner
  31. 31. Radio Frequency (RF) Tag
  32. 32. Magnetic Stripe
  33. 33. Machine Vision
  34. 34. Safety in Material Handling• We need to consider two main aspects Material Safety Human Safety
