How Can The Arnold Machinery Material Handling System Help Reduce Hazards?

  Any assembly line in any industrial or manufacturing facility has an impact on human health, and the environment. It's important to reduce the effects of hazardous materials in the workplace. This can be achieved through use of Arnolds machinery material handling systems.

The Arnolds system was developed in the 1950s, by Fred Arnolds, who had been a talented draftsman and innovator. Fred was working for the Skoda Company when he decided to try his hand at developing a new type of material handling systems. In 1949, the "Aryeh Thor" was born. The Aryeh Thor Organizer was initially patented in 1959.

By adding small plastic valves (Aryeh Thor valves) to the input and output (modular) pipe lines, Arnold created a no-dump handling system. This prevented build up of waste material and dust particles, which greatly reduced the risk of product contamination. Arnold's Aryeh Thor also has proven its reliability and dependability over the years.

The Aryeh Thor also became known as the Arnold Arranger. Arnold introduced several models and versions of the Aryeh Thor.

As the Aryeh Thor was used more, more models and versions were added to the Arnold range. The Arnolds Group has long was using Arnie machinery material handling systems in all its manufacturing processes.

There are various models of Arnolds machinery material handling systems. Some are portable; some are stationary; some have multiple jobs; some allow different types of conveyors, materials or layers. All these models have the potential to help in reducing waste, reducing of carbon dioxide emission and spoilage due to delayed processing.

The most common and basic model of the Arnolds products is the Arnie motor vehicle conveyor. The design of this product allows for separation of material and accessories, not only from the vehicle but also from the finished product. This assists in producing a cleaner product with fewer harmful substances.

Another product is the modular racks. The modular racks consist of materials for assembly, for test, for packaging, for shipping or for free-flowing, and for any other container that needs to be separated from the finished product.

Another model is the modular rails which can be used in the assembly area or in distribution and does not need for pipes or bags. This reduces the number of redundant conveyors, and it provides a reduction in hazards to people, for example liquids leaking, solids falling out and corrosive oils and acids.

Other models include the pallet forklift which consists of two forks which allow access to the pallets and buckets without the need to bend over and pick them up. A similar feature is available with the leaf clipper.

With a system that uses a series of conveyors, a machine will be able to work around the clock and allow better maintenance of the material handling system. For example, the Arnie range has a "dry farm" which has a built-in air dryer, allowing the operator to use this product at any time.

When choosing a material handling system for a production site, it is important to choose one that fit the needs of the operation, as well as the efficiency of the production process. It is also important to choose a model that is long-lasting, especially if it is used in a large operation, such as a multi-storey building.
