Integrated Material Handling Systems

Custom material handling solutions from item West are a result of quality conveyor components and versatile accessories that create an integrated dynamic material handing system that is incorporated into support structures, workbenches, and machine frames.

item West integrates various machine handling tools such as roller conveyor, chain driven, and linear components right into manufacturing equipment for a controlled material motion system.

Pre-configured industry solutions from item help you find the ideal solution for typical tasks in next to no time. All the components are from the MB Building Kit System and can be combined with customized designs. item offers industry solutions for the automotive, logistics, pharmaceutical, process automation and research and development sectors.

Additional material handling components include racks, carts, and mobile structures.

Flexible Interlinking Work Benches

Today, flexible, cost-effective, and ergonomic work benches are more important than ever in the value-added chain. The new item components for equipping and interlinking workbenches are both modern and versatile. And a solid investment for the future!

Transfer work pieces manually from bench to bench on roller conveyors or slide strips, castor balls or brushes. Connecting work benches together couldn’t be easier, and the ease with which functional elements can be changed over maximizes flexibility at all times.

Extraordinary Flexibility with the New item Castor Rails

The modular Castor Rail 8 40×40 is the foundation of a new system solution for interlinking work benches and moving goods. The grooves in item profiles 5 and 8 ensure that the castor rails can be easily connected and fastened to standard elements. A wide range of inserts are available, all designed to make the manual transportation of goods and work piece carriers as gentle and efficient as possible – and each and every element fits into the same universal castor rail!

Inserts range from colored castors for KanBan identification and brush inserts for exceptionally gentle work piece conveying, to castor ball inserts and slide strips. The item castor rail can be customized to meet the specific requirements of the planner. Complete roller conveyor systems are also available from the warehouse for particularly rapid deployment. And, of course, item has also responded to the call for electrostatically dissipative components – ESD-safe inserts are available and many elements are designed with protection against electrostatic build-up.

Brushes and castor balls can also be used as inserts for tabletops, thus enabling a smooth transition from castor rail to work surface. A railing at the side of the castor rail provides additional support and precision – and can be made exceptionally low-friction and dissipative using slide strips.
