Show me your parts carts12/6
We recently got our router up and running and we've been discussing in the shop what would be an effective and efficient way to handle box parts as they come off of the cnc. We've got some ideas, some better than others, but just curious what others have come up with.
Cutting things manually, it's pretty easy to keep things tidy. I'm a little concerned this is going to be a furball trying to maintain order on large jobs without a solid plan in place. So any other advice or tips would be appreciated.
We aren't using labels currently, but may in the future.
We use a cart with numbered slots. Cabinet 1, slot 1.....
As an alternative, use 2 or 3 carts to sort by banding requirements and sort by cabinet after the bander.
I stack mine on rollers with the parts list. These are waiting processing.
We have several Hafele vertical parts carts. Sort according to banding needs, and tops/bottoms on one cart and ends on another cart. For frameless cabinets the tops/bottoms need to be end bored so makes sense to put all those parts in one area.
I do not print labels, I write the rm# and cab#...1-2, 1-1 etc.... on the ends of the panels. I can do this faster than searching for a label, applying and ultimately taking it back off later.
