Creform has developed a six-sided communication kiosk for internal plant use at a commercial cleaning products company that wanted a display board in a hexagonal pattern.
The Creform kiosk, with dimensions of 51″ W x 44″ L x 72″ T is a communications center useful for sharing information such as business metrics, kaizen events, housekeeping instructions, drawings / illustrations, as well as HR postings and ISO procedures.
It is ideal for daily or weekly schedules, work assignments, production goals, special announcements, safety tips, rules and up-to-the-minute news and data. The Creform system of pipe and joints structure holds six standard sized 2’x 4′ single sided 1/8″ thick white dry erase magnetic boards. The boards are connected with a unique Creform plastic clip.
Besides the white boards, this station could feature alternative surfaces such as metal sheets, cork panels, plastic panels, polycarbonate or acrylic depending on the user’s requirements.
The kiosk is supported by six swivel casters for mobility, three that lock to hold in position. It is lightweight and easily moved by lifting and wheeling the structure to its new location. If a dedicated or assigned location is required, an all-feet configuration is an option.
The six-sided kiosk is useful in all types of industrial and educational facilities and is well suited for assembly, manufacturing, distribution operations and training events. Portable and maneuverable to travel from location to location within the plant or just moved aside for housekeeping. Particularly for companies that need to keep track of important business metrics and make them available in convenient, centrally located positions.
The kiosk came fully assembled but can come as a kitted or assembled structure and can be custom designed to a user’s standard. The rugged plastic coated Creform steel pipe and metal joint construction is suitable for use in an industrial environment and if the need arises a user can take it apart and recycle the components. If the structure should get damaged, Creform system spare parts allow the user to quickly repair rather than replace the structure.
An added benefit of the Creform kiosk is it generally cost less than the catalog version variety and are more durable, flexible and repairable. An ideal solution for an industrial environment. The unit shown is with blue pipe and black joints but options include different pipe colors, types of boards and sizes of boards.
The Creform system is used to create an array of material handling and efficiency enhancing devices and is a proven component in continuous improvement and lean manufacturing programs. The company partners with customers in developing and enhancing these programs.
