Get The CC Apex Before Your Competition
INDUSTRIAL TASKS ARE LABOR-INTENSIVE
Let's assume that pushing a heavy cart is a big part of your workflow. It should not be accepted as a norm to overexert your body for a cart to budge by pushing or pulling. Putting your body under awkward stress to carry out a task should never be recognized as a norm. It’s unnatural. The human body is not made from industrial machinery. There’s only so much stress a human body can take before eventually giving out.
HIGH RISK OF PUSHING HEAVY CARTS
If you are carrying out a physically demanding task on a consistent basis, there is a price to pay down the line. Many occupational accidents occur while operating manual push/pull carts. 37% of low back pain is due to Manual Material Handling (MMH) jobs. Pushing and pulling is top of the list for frequent MMH activities.
WORK INJURIES CAN NEGATIVELY IMPACT YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE
Work injuries can take days to develop and lead to an impairment that can last for weeks, months, or years. Unexpected medical bills can potentially ruin your finances. Are you or your family prepared to take on expensive medical bills? Struggling families can't afford to cover medical expenses on top of their cost of living.
UNPLANNED DOWNTIME TAKES TIME AWAY FROM WORK
Work injuries can set off a sequence of downtime events that cut into profits. An injured employee can bottleneck production flow and cause delays in shipments to clients. This opens up a world of liabilities for many people involved in the production process. It costs more time and money to rectify all of the problems to ensure everyone is happy.
ROOT CAUSE PROBLEM-SOLVING
Case in point, work injuries aren't worth it when you can help prevent it with the CC Apex in the first place. One of the main problems stemming from hard-to-push carts is on the ground level. Without casters, carts are not able to move. In an ideal situation, the most effective caster wheel should be able to work with you, not against you.
CC APEX HELPS LOWER CHANCES OF INJURIES AND DOWNTIME
Together, both the CC Apex and CC Peak have proven to reduce a cart operator's biomechanical load by 25-50%. One of the CC Apex's greatest strengths is that the polyurethane tread absorbs energy. When the CC Apex is sitting under pressure, it wants to move. While in motion, the CC Apex releases stored energy to reduce push/pull efforts. This allows an operator to move the cart without having to overexert their body.
CC Peak's Raceway
The CC Peak is a maintenance-free swivel rig that experiences no spikes in push/pull. The raceway of the CC Peak has a thrust bearing and a tapered roller bearing, which composes a precise raceway where the load is evenly distributed. The CC Peak is an excellent ergonomic option and can lower BWC claims.
CC Apex with the CC Peak
To recap, ergonomic casters can help prevent work injuries on hard-to-push carts. Both CC Apex and CC Peak were designed with ergonomics as a top priority. Together, the CC Apex and CC Peak reduce push/pull efforts by 25-50%, lowering chances of work injuries and downtime from happening during operating hours.
