Anyone that works with forklifts knows that clamps withstand a lot of wear and tear. Whether you’re handling rolls, barrels, or flat boxes, it’s not a matter of if your clamps start to fail, but a matter of when. Unfortunately, fully replacing parts on your machinery is expensive and reduces productivity. Here’s the good news: Sioux Rubber & Urethane has the solution, and we’ve been doing it for over 30 years! Our Endurawear clamp pads and covers provide a safe, strong, easy, budget-friendly, and fast way to keep your clamps in business.
Topics: Clamp Pads
Clamp pads are those necessary pieces of equipment warehouses and distribution centers can’t live without. These forklift attachments are made of steel or aluminum and coated with a rib-designed rubber that allows for easier handling of rolls, barrels, boxes and about anything else that needs to be moved.
So when these powerhouses of the manufacturing industry wear out, they need to be replaced; it is an expense you can’t put off. Using worn-out clamp pads is never a good idea as you risk damaging the material you’re being paid to move. But, the good news is you don’t have to spend as much as you think!
There’s a lot of talk about luck this time of year (and tiny green men) and though you might scoff at the idea of “luck,” there is such a thing as making your own “good luck.” Opting to recover, instead of replacing, your worn-out clamp pads offer all types of lucky benefits like reduced downtime and lower cost all in one amazing product.
When your machines or equipment breaks down due to abrasion, impact or corrosion issues, you’re losing money. Daily wear and tear is common, but your equipment is only designed to take so much. When this happens, not only has production stopped but the costs quickly add up with repairs and downtime. We developed rubber and urethane products that take the daily abuse from abrasion, impact and corrosion, saving your equipment and protecting your materials. Better yet, when the rubber or urethane wears out, that’s all that needs to be replaced, saving you time and money.
When manufacturing machines break down, they don’t produce products on-time which can negatively impact your bottom line. One of the main reasons for a machine to break down is wear-and-tear due to abrasion, friction and impact. Applying rubber or urethane to your machines and its parts helps them last longer, reducing downtime and saving you money.
A good pair of clamp pads helps warehouse operations go off without a hitch. These rubber-coated forklift attachments (made of steel or aluminum and coated with a rib-designed rubber) allow workers to easily handle rolls, barrels, boxes and much more. When clamp pads wear out, work is halted waiting for a new pair to arrive. But, it doesn’t have to be that way.
When you choose to recover, instead of replacing your clamp pads, you’ve made a smart decision that will positively impact your company’s bottom line. Many clamp pad manufacturers won’t tell you that recovered clamp pads can be a third of the cost of a new set.
Clamp pads are an indispensable piece of equipment for your forklift. That’s because they attach to special forks to allow you to move oddly-shaped or fragile materials around your warehouse or facility with ease. When clamp pads wear out, you could be at risk for damage from sliding, scratching and even dropping materials. If you’re buying a brand new set of clamp pads every time they wear out, you’re wasting precious time and money.
Tis the season for gift giving and for most of us, the list gets longer year after year. But we’re guessing there’s one gift that’s not on your list, and it should be; it’s clamp pads for your forklift.
