When a local distribution company noticed that guide wheels on their Order pickers were sustaining heaviy damage, they contacted Essen Engineering to look for a solution.
Essen visiting the site and noticed that the 'Adjustable' nature of the guide wheels meant that the plates were cracking, often taking the machines our of action for weeks at a time while replacement parts were sourced.
The Designers at Essen Engineering designed and laser cut new plates with millimeter accuracy meaning that the plates had much more strength around the bolts, each of the 8 order pickers was taken out of service for around an hour while the plates were removed, refabricated and refitted - all work was carried out onsite to minimise distruption to operations in the warehouse.
