B W Industries Ltd have recently taken delivery of two Nu-Star Power Pushers at their main manufacturing facility in Carnaby, East Yorkshire. The Power Pushers are used to manoeuvre a range of rolled steel sections from point of production to despatch.
Established in 1974, B W Industries specialises in the manufacture of steel components for the construction and engineering industries. Their product range includes, press formed and rolled steel sections, fabrication and welding, laser cutting and turret punching to name but a few.
After seeing several of the Nu-Star Power Pushers in use at one of their own customer sites (Rollalong Ltd in Dorset), B W Industries Production Director, Trevor Brough, contacted Nu-Star and requested a site visit to assess the likely benefits if they used the Power Pusher to move the various trolleys in use around the plant and remove the manual handling element.
The various trolleys on site are used to transport steel components with weights between 1000 Kg and 6500 Kg. Moving them by hand was both labour intensive and time consuming.
B W Industries Managing Director Mike Pugh explained: “After noticing the units at one of our clients, it immediately struck me as an ideal solution to transport steel sections around our works without the investment and ongoing costs of fork lifts, or using overhead cranes with limited movement, indeed the tug units have proved invaluable.”
Nu-Star manufactures a comprehensive range of pedestrian-operated, battery powered tug units, specifically designed to improve shop-floor productivity and eliminate the risks of manual handling.
The Nu-Star product range is manufactured in Derbyshire, UK and is available throughout Europe, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand through approved Distributors. America & Canada are served from NuStar Inc in Minneapolis, USA.
