Building Material HandlingBricks, breeze blocks plasterboard, doors, roof trusses, joists, heating and plumbing supplies, kitchen cabinets, bathroom suites, etc.  Products used in the building industry span a wide range of items, all of which start out life in one type of manufacturing facility or another.

Building supplies are often heavy or bulky – or both – and can be difficult to handle, both in a production environment as well as on site.  However in a production environment, building material handling tends to be repetitive.  This can lead to serious work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WRMSDs) to either the back, neck, shoulders and upper limbs.

Studies have shown that the introduction of an industrial manipulator for material handling tasks improves ergonomics in the workplace, significantly reducing WRMSDs whilst increasing productivity.
