Steel Tubes, Plastic & Metal Joints, Brackets & Accessories For Lean Manufacturing & Industry 4.0 Solutions
FlowTube is a range of reusable steel tubing and rapid assembly connecting joints, brackets, roller tracks, parts and accessories, which not only enables you to design and build a wide range of applications and solutions for industry, but can also be integrated into a Lean Manufacturing or Kaizen environment.
FlowTube Solutions For Industry
It supports Continuous Improvement in the following ways:
FlowTube steel tubing structures are quick and easy to assemble and modify. It requires minimal special tools and training, making it ideal for shop-floor changes at point of use.
FlowTube equipment can be easily modified to improve ergonomics, add or remove features, or change dimensions for different products.
Most FlowTube steel tubing equipment can be mounted on castors so that the work area can be quickly rearranged for optimal productivity.
In the event that equipment must be completely redesigned, FlowTube structures can be easily disassembled and the parts reused.
Versatile Steel Tubing Systems
FlowTube versatile modular tube systems are simple to design, quick to assemble and completely reusable. These can be used for storage, materials handling, assembly manufacturing, distribution and industrial logistics.
As FlowTube can be used for many different customised structures, FlowTube is a particularly useful tool for Industry 4.0 and Continuous Improvement in addition to other Lean solutions such as 5S, Visual Management, Parts Supermarkets etc.
The Versatile, Heavy-Duty SOlution
That Increases Processes Efficiencies
FlowTube Steel is the ideal solution for mobile, heavy-duty material flow requirements. FlowTube Steel and its components are used in many retail logistics warehouses and heavy manufacturing sectors such as clothing, food distribution, automotive, aerospace and industrial goods.
With many distribution and production facilities having a wide range of operating environments, FlowTube Steel is available in different finishes to support your production line requirements.
ABS coated for colour finishes for branding or zoning purposes
Ideal for heavier and bigger cartons
The coated tube is highly resistant to oils including cutting oil, corrosion and UV light
Powder coated for colour finishes for branding or zoning purposes
More cost-effective solution than coated or stainless steel
The coating does not emit any toxic fumes in the event of a fire
Highly resistant to oil, UV light and corrosion
Surface resistant to light abrasion or contacts with metal tools
High resistance to oil, solvents and bleach
Build versatile trolleys and flow racks that can be towed by vehicles or Automatic Guide Vehicles for increased material throughput.
The option of coated steel tubes for added robustness and guard against damage and scratching. Coated tubes can also reflect your brand colours.
FlowTube’s wide range of roller tracks allows you create quieter material flow and utilise low gradients to maximise space.
Quickly adapt your existing structures to implement new processes using standard tools to cut and join tubes and brackets together.
Variety of tube thickness and widths to meet your heavy-duty carton handling requirements.
FlowTube’s wide selection of steel tubes and an extensive range of brackets allows you to create optimised solutions for your material flow processes.
Use standard tools to join tubes and brackets together as well as compatibility with FlowTube Aluminium tubes for greater longevity and reusability of your solutions.
For maintenance, FlowTube Steel tubes can be inspected visually for signs of wear and tear, as well as cleaned with soap and water for an easier to manage maintenance regime.
Create adjustable height workstations to provide ergonomic solutions that lead to improved wellbeing and increased productivity. Adjustable adaptation can be via hand crank or electronic adjustments.
A wide range of accessories is available such as lighting, power bars, castor wheels and dunnage bags, as well as foam rollers for impact protection in your warehouse and production facilities.
