Abstract:

Material handling system can be defined as movement, handling, storage and controlling of materials throughout the manufacturing process. The main purpose of using a material handling system is to ensure that the material in the right amount is carefully delivered to the desired destination at the right time at minimum cost. The material handling system ensures the timely delivery of desired quantity of material at desired location with minimum cost and maximum safety. Material handling is not a manufacturing process but involve substantial amount of product cost and labor. Due to daily invention of new technologies material-handling equipment are undergoing continuous automation. Wide ranges of material handling equipment are available in the market and it is difficult to select best one for industries requirement. A material handling system should be chosen in such away so that to reduce manufacturing cost and avoid interruption and damage. On the other side right selection and planning of MH improves productivity, efficiency and profit of a company. This paper focuses on the key points of the material handling equipments. In this paper an attempt is made to set some guidelines for selecting the best material handling system for a particular task out of available ones.
