What Is Material Handling and Why Is it Important?

Material handling is the process of moving goods and materials over short distances, for example from a loading truck into a warehouse, or from one part of a factory or processing facility to another. There are many different devices and pieces of equipment that can be used for material handling, including relatively simple, manual tools like hoists and hand trucks to more complex, automated conveyor systems made up of multiple lanes and components.

The process of material handling is hugely important, all over the world, playing a key part in the fields of manufacturing, processing, logistics, and transportation. Countless items pass through material handling systems every day in warehouses, factories, processing facilities, and even retail environments.

A good material handling system with the right parts and devices can optimize or streamline the flow of goods through warehouses, storage facilities, and other environments, maximizing efficiency, reducing costs for a business, and helping to decrease the odds of any accidents or injuries that could occur when moving heavy items from place to place. This is why it’s so vital to choose the very best quality material handling parts and devices, like those you’ll find at Motion.

How Are Material Handling Products Used?

The main purpose of any material handling device, tool, or component is to aid with the movement or transportation of goods across a distance or through a building. But, since there are so many different types of material handling products, they can work in very different ways, and it’s important for businesses and material handling professionals to be familiar with the various tools and devices they might have to use.

There are manual material handling tools, for example, like hand trucks, pallet jacks, and even simple caster wheels attached to the base of a cart or platform can fall into the category of material handling. Such items are simple to use with the application of manual force or effort. Then, there are more complex automated material handling systems, like dock loading platforms, lifts, hoists, and conveyor systems which can move large quantities of goods and materials to high places or along an entire production processing line.

The Best Material Handling Products

It’s clear to see that material handling products and parts have a huge role to play in modern industry. Without these tools and devices, goods and materials simply wouldn’t be able to get to where they need to be, and entire industries would shut down. But, in order to get the best results from any material handling device or tool you use, you need to invest in the best quality products, like those that you can find in the Motion catalog.
