Types of Material Handling Applications
Trucks and Mobile Lifting Aids
Trucks and mobile lifting aids perform a large percentage of material handling in modern workshops. Thomson can design, build and deliver custom systems that can be fitted directly into your machine. This is just one of many advantages of having Thomson as your supplier.
Car Chassis Transportation
Moving goods, parts or components between production cells means covering distances with speed, but without getting in the way of other processes. Overhead transportation is one way to achieve this goal, and Thomson provides quality products to get the job done.
Food Container Palletizing
The food industry places high demands on material handling equipment. Whatever your particular food handling challenge may be, Thomson has the products and know-how to get the job done.
Vertical Lift Module - Automatic Storage
Moving materials in and out of storage can often create major logistical challenges. Thomson has several standard products that are well-suited to this type of application, as well as the ability to design a customized solution if needed.
Assembly Line Engine Handling
The main challenge in an assembly line is that the quick pace normally found requires systems to be lightweight, to make it possible for operators to move the equipment quickly and accurately and lower the risk of fatigue and injuries. Thomson has pioneered a family of products and services to meet the challenge.
Aircraft Wing Handling
Few industries place as much demand on a handling system as aircraft construction. At Thomson, we have both the unique experience and the products to meet the precise needs of the most demanding material handling applications.
