What is Material Handling?

Material Handling is defined as “The basic operations performed in connection with the movement of bulk, packaged and individual products in the required state within the manufacturing or service establishment.”

Material handling amounts to 15 to 20 % of the total cost of the product without adding any value to it and hence it is a very important part in production planning.

Objectives of Material Handling:

Minimize Cost of material handling. Minimize Delays and Interruptions by making the

required product available at the right time in the right quantity and quality.

Safety in material handling by improvement of working conditions.

Prevention of damage to the materials. Lower in-process inventory.

Material Handling devices

Material Handling devices can be classified into 3 basic categories on basis of their operating principle.

The 3 categories are : Conveyors Cranes and Trucks Industrial Trucks

Page 8: Material handling (Production Technology)

Conveyors Conveyors perform the movement of uniform loads

between fixed points. Conveyors are very useful when loads are uniform and a

continuous movement of the material is desired along a fixed route.

Types of conveyors are: Belt Conveyors Roller Conveyors Screw Conveyors Pipeline Conveyors Monorail Conveyors Trolley Conveyors

Cranes and Hoists Cranes are overhead devices capable of moving

materials vertically and laterally in area of limited length and width and height.

Cranes are generally used for lifting and lowering heavy objects.

Hoists are used for loading, unloading, raising and lowering heavy or long objects

Cranes and hoists are used when loads are not uniform and their movement is also varied.

Industrial Trucks Hand or powered vehicles are used for movement of

mixed or uniform loads intermittently over varying parts which have suitable running surfaces and clearances.

These are mainly used for transportation of the material from one place to another.

The main types are : Forklift truck Platform Truck Tractor trailer

Selection of Material Handling Equipment

The Material Handling Equipment is to be selected after due consideration of the following factors:

Nature of Operation Material to be handled Distance over which material is to be handled Installation and operating costs Safety Considerations Engineering Factors Equipment reliability

Page 15: Material handling (Production Technology)

Symptoms of Bad Material Handling

Frequent Interruption in production due to delay in handling and supplying of materials.

Skilled Labour performing storing, movement and handling of materials.

Damage to material in handling. Accumulation of materials work-in-process at

different locations. Crowded workspace.
