REDUCED LABOR, SAFER OPERATIONS

DRASTIC IMPROVEMENT

The facility had multiple injuries on file and sustained irreparable damage to dies using a standard forklift for changeover. RICO manufactured a dedicated walk-behind die handler to protect the employee(s) and dies to ensure a safe and accident-free environment.
