Sponsored jointly by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and International Material Management Society, this single source reference is designed to meet today's need for updated technical information on planning, installing and operating materials handling systems. It not only classifies and describes the standard types of materials handling equipment, but also analyzes the engineering specifications and compares the operating capabilities of each type. Over one hundred professionals in various areas of materials handling present efficient methods, procedures and systems that have significantly reduced both manufacturing and distribution costs.Reference to the aquot;pushaquot; table indicates that less than half of the male workers and even fewer female workers would be able to perform this push task with relative ... to exert an initial force of 62 Ib (28 kg) and sustained force of 35 Ib (16 kg).
