While many people look to vacuum lifting for the ergonomic and economic benefits, an often-forgotten benefit of utilizing vacuum lifters is increased productivity. Productivity can be defined by a number of measurements that management teams commonly use to monitor the performance of their warehouse operations. Often, leadership is looking to increase productivity with the use of products that can decrease the amount of repetitive and tedious tasks an employee is performing. Or, they may be looking to invest in a solution that reduces worker exposure to dangerous duties. Either way, vacuum lifters are a proven tool that can be used to increase productivity.
How to Increase Productivity with Vacuum Lifting
Vacuum lifting systems eliminate the need for unsafe and time-consuming lifting mechanisms in warehouse environments. While pulley systems and chains are often used for lifting scenarios and are known to reduce over-lifting, they often require extended downtime between lifts because of set-up. In contrast, vacuum lifting systems require no downtime between lifts and seldom require any maintenance. These systems can easily lift hundreds of pounds quickly and safely, in contrast to the struggle and muscle it would take at least 2 workers to lift the same amount.
In addition to lifting more quickly, vacuum lifting systems increase productivity because it frees up workers to do more complex jobs. When employees are free from monotonous tasks, they can perform higher level functions to help increase productivity through other avenues of work. Reducing manual labor and replacing human workers with mechanics is a great way to improve the quality of work as well as the morale of workers.
