Vehicle damage prevention from manufacture to customer
Veneer Interiors – A variation in temperature and humidity causes changes to the moisture content in wood which results in shrinking and swelling and leads to cracks. Veneer is valuable, especially when produced from rare or exotic wood; therefore replacing these as a result of cracks caused by temperature and humidity can result in unnecessary additional expense.
Employees – A change in ambient temperature can affect the productivity and wellness of staff.
Paint Booths – Freshly painted chassis’ can quickly begin to peel should the temperature and humidity become overbearing resulting in a poor quality finish.
Temperature and humidity monitoring solutions supplied by Hanwell Solutions can assist in maintaining the correct environmental conditions for veneer storage and paint booths as well as monitoring and controlling ambient temperature for staff.
Reducing staff illness and damage to materials is a simple and quick way to reduce costs to the business.
Forklift Trucks – Knocks and scrapes in warehouse racking can cause damage to the goods on the shelves, the racking itself and the forklift truck.
Impact recorders are a quick and cost-effective way of easily identifying impact into racking that also act as a visual reminder to drive with care and if an impact is identified check the safety of the racks and inspect relevant equipment before use.
Electronics – dashboard damage, dislodging fuses.
Engine – automobile shimmy.
Tyres – disruption to wheel balance and tracking.
A ShockLog is capable of monitoring detailed vibration with date and time of significant events by the individual vehicle during transportation.
Diagnosing a potential unidentified problem for immediate corrective action can save a company’s reputation and reduce claims on warranty costs resulting from future repairs.
Windscreen – The action of a tilt to car windscreens during transit can cause warping and mean that these cannot be easily installed.
Lightbulb – Recording the level of impact a parcel containing glass can incur when well packaged can not only assist with reduced damage but also assist with identifying the level of packaging required potentially reducing unnecessary costs.
Car Batteries – Impacts occurring to a car battery will significantly reduce the performance with a high chance of reduced capabilities.
Paint – Impact to paint containers during transit can be hugely hazardous and even dangerous depending on the paint related category in question.
Rotary Parts – Vibration of rotary parts can often affect the optimisation of a rotor and even cause significant damage that can go undetected until use.
To ensure parts and materials such as car batteries are transported safely a ShockWatch impact indicator can be used. the indicator will not only act as a visual deterrent to improper handling but also highlight if the battery has been subjected to an impact.
Damage due to mishandling can be prevented and problem carriers or routes can be pin-pointed.
