What is a Kit-Cart?

A kit cart is most often used as a form of material presentation. Kit carts are used in particular along assembly lines, workstations and service areas. Kit carts allow the facility or factory to produce a kit of materials and tools for the assembler along the assembly time. This means that the assembler/operator no longer has to look for different components and tools. This makes the assembly process much smoother and easier for the assembler, which in turn improves overall efficiency and productivity within your plant.

Why buy a FlexQube Kit-Cart?

FlexQube enables customers to create totally customised carts for their needs, according to the materials and according to their work processes. All of our carts are designed and constructed with high quality steel, so our kit carts have a much higher load capacity in comparison to more traditional tube and joint systems.

With more and more end-product variants available to manufacturers nowadays and especially OEMs within the automotive industry, there is not enough room to store all the different part numbers along the assembly line at the same time. Therefore, components need to be provided just in time or in sequence or in smaller batches using e.g. kit carts or carts where you store different part numbers but in smaller quantities. Many times, this is referred to as naked material presentation. This means that the components are presented to the operator on the production line or in the workstation without any packaging, plastic coverings or are taken out of the boxes and placed in a position where the operator can just pick up the part without spending time on unwrapping the items.

Kitting parts means that more of the work related to material handling is transferred back to the warehouse or logistics employees. Space and speed on the assembly line are crucial which means that the operators and assemblers cannot spend any unnecessary time unwrapping parts or opening cardboard boxes. They must concentrate on fitting parts on end-products and instead leave material handling tasks to the logistics staff. Kit carts are an useful tool in all this and the need for flexible solutions is of course great since shapes, dimensions, quantities, etc. will change over time. Using a flexible and modular system like the one from FlexQube makes it possible to adjust and adapt kit carts to constantly changing needs.

FlexQube has cantilever-style carts to hold pipes, rods, wire ropes or hoses. We have delivered these solutions to a variety of industries including heavy industrial equipment companies like JLG Industries, Cummins and Doosan Infracore. Other references for kit carts are Whirlpool and Isringhausen.

Kit carts mean that the carts are used to transport a limited amount of parts to the assembly operations, in some cases also in sequence meaning that the parts must be put onto the cart in a specific order to make sure the operators pick the right part for the right product. It is also of course important to set up the kit cart in an efficient way to make sure the picking time both in the warehouse but even more important on the assembly line, is kept to a minimum.

By gathering information about batch sizes, sequences, mixing of parts and other parameters, FlexQube can help customers design and adapt the perfect kit cart. A kit cart with built in flexibility for upcoming changes in component design and manufacturing mix etc.

A kit cart can be used for one specific type of component or as an all-in-one kit cart for multiple different components. They can vary in size and complexity. If the kit cart holds very large or heavy parts, it is important to consider the use of lifting equipment and to make sure they can access the component along the assembly line.

In the kit carts category on our Solutions Library platform you will find several different designs that can help you bring the material to the operators in a better and quality assured manner.
