Specialised Engineering Products (SEP) is a globally recognized major manufacturing and distribution company that specializes in high-quality sealing devices for virtually all sealing applications.
SEP had a need for tool handling and approached Wilmat for a solution.
Wilmat provided the Die Handler, a hand-pushed equipment with battery lift, designed to load/unload tools in and out of presses and onto the tool racking. This solution proved to be highly effective, speeding up the loading and unloading process.
𝐁𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐟𝐢𝐭𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐓𝐫𝐮𝐜𝐤:
Speed: The Die Handler significantly improved the speed of the loading and unloading process, enhancing overall productivity.
Health and Safety (H&S): The equipment eliminated strain on operators during the loading and unloading process, as it replaces the need for manual pumping of the truck to a height of 3 to 4 feet.
H&S – Tool Removal: The chain mechanism of the Die Handler made it easier and safer to remove tools, especially when they are heated to 160°C.
H&S – Tool Movement: The chain feature also ensured safer movement of tools around the factory.
Operator Satisfaction: This was the first time SEP used Wilmat equipment, and all operators were pleased with the Die Handler’s performance. They use the equipment daily to enhance their workflow.
SEP expressed their satisfaction with Wilmat’s service, especially Marie’s technical problem-solving expertise and guidance on using and applying the equipment.
Lift Height: 1700mm to the bed
Manual Die Handling Platform: Equipped with a rotation handle that can be used on either side of the bed
Charging: The unit has a built-in charger that can be plugged into a standard 13 amp outlet for charging.
Wilmat expressed delight in working with SEP and looks forward to continued collaboration in the future.
