Newcastle MK LT Series DS0121 Cart

Posted May 20, 2022

Sometimes, you just need a mobile computer cart to get the job done right.

The MK LT Series DS0121 from Newcastle Systems is inexpensive, lightweight, and has the potential to increase output by at least fifty percent.

lt series ds0121 mobile cart

The DS0121 is our most cost-effective mobile cart system to date, and it was designed specifically for mobile computer and light printing applications in commercial and industrial settings.

The elimination of costly footfall to and from static hardware results in noticeable productivity gains for your workforce. Using the mobile trolley, a laptop, thermal printer, and scanner can be powered all at once. That means fewer redundant trips, and fewer instances where scanners run out of charge.

The amount of energy, time, and money saved when you implemented a powered mobile cart makes for an exceptional price to performance ratio.

Reasons to Love the LT DS0121 Mobile Cart

  • Typical return on investment attained in less than three months
  • Rugged industrial design for improved performance and longevity in the harshest environments
  • Lightweight for any worker to push easily, weighing in at just 63 pounds
  • Compatible with existing hardware – just plug and go
  • Quiet, seamless AC Power

Endless Customization Options for Your Specific Needs

Standard LT Series carts all include a top shelf, middle shelf, and push handles as well as 5″ rubber wheels and locking industrial casters. Beyond these features, LT mobile carts have nearly endless ways to customize them depending on your operational needs.

For one, adjustable laptop and scanner holders can be included on each mobile workstation.

You also have a wide range of battery power options. Most popular is a reusable, lightweight lithium iron battery that will run 24/7 and is easily swappable (or can be installed as a “fixed” battery). Sealed lead acid batteries that run for 8+ hours are another power choice that many warehouses rely on.

Another feature we love is the Bluetooth-enabled app, which displays charge level, cycle life, and more usage statistics (available for Android and Apple).

Mobile Labeling Stations from Newcastle Systems Drastically Improve Warehouse Efficiency

Posted August 31, 2021

nb series nucleus

Warehouse and fulfillment operations pose a great challenge any year, but consumer behavior during the pandemic has shifted heavily to online purchases. As a result, operations are handling larger inventories and more receipts, picks, shipments, and returns than ever before.

Meet the Demands of eCommerce Growth

While organizations focused on “keeping up” with demand, this was often at a higher cost (especially since many deprioritized process inefficiencies).

The eCommerce trend is not short-term. In Q1 2020, U.S. ecommerce sales climbed 39% over the same time last year, and growth projections already are nearly two years ahead of forecasts.

With demand still high, any inefficiencies in your processes will be exaggerated (and hence, more costly). Higher costs could mean serious limitations when scaling up your operations.

To optimize your warehouse for growth, small steps can make big impacts on your bottom-line costs, profit margin, even productivity – without significant investment in time, budget, or fancy software.

Ready to trim waste from your eCommerce operations? Get quick results with these five steps:

#1 – Establish a Cleaning Routine for Your Warehouse

Never underestimate the power of “clean.” Dust and dirt can damage product; empty pallets take up valuable space; and scrap boxes and strewn paper become obstacles and potential safety hazards that impede machine and people access, reduce productivity, and add extra steps as workers maneuver to avoid roadblocks. Implement an ongoing “clean routine” task list for your warehouse to streamline traffic and protect product – and workers.

#2 – Save Valuable Time with Cross-Docking

In eCommerce, there is a lot of pressure to ship items fast. If you have back ordered or single-item orders for certain products, you can save valuable time by skipping the restocking process. Instead, set up a process to relabel them for shipping right as they come off the truck on the receiving dock, and route them right back out the door of your shipping dock.

#3 – Simplify the Labeling Process

Labels have been around for decades, quietly getting inventory from point A to point B. Despite their importance, labels are perhaps one of the most underappreciated aspects of warehouse operations – and potentially one of the least efficient. Take time to audit and map your labeling process, paying particular attention to wasted motion, for example, the number of mouse clicks it takes to adjust formats, the number of trips a worker takes to/from the printer. Try to reduce the extra steps and work toward achieving an ideal mobile labeling process of Scan, Print, Apply. Mobile labeling stations, such as the Newcastle NB Series Nucleus System, help reduce walking and double employee productivity.

#4 – Organize SKU Location According to Volume

Certain items in your inventory may be more popular than others. For SKUs with higher order volumes or seasonal spikes, making them more accessible also makes processes more efficient. Location is key, so prioritize these items by placing them closer to packing for instance – and don’t forget to increase the bin size so stock doesn’t run low. 

#5 – Reduce the Steps Required to Fill Orders

It may be hard to believe, but simply reducing the physical number of steps an employee takes to fill an order can result in significant cost and time savings. Converting a stationary workplace to a mobile one is the easiest, most economical way to increase the productivity of your current workers and infrastructure. Powered industrial carts, such as the line of products from Newcastle Systems, can hold and power printers, computers, and more to remove the tethers of a stationary workstation. This is everything workers need to get the job done right at their fingertips.

Improving Warehouse Efficiency

Efforts to optimize warehouse processes don’t have to be time-consuming or expensive. And doing so improves warehouse efficiency, and enables you to scale your operations successfully along with ecommerce growth. Whether you have interest in a specific solution from Newcastle, or have questions about general warehouse efficiency, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Newcastle Systems MotionMeter

Posted September 30, 2020

Why MotionMeter?

What is WASTE?

WASTE is any task in a process that is not required to complete a process successfully. When waste is removed, only the tasks that are NECESSARY to deliver a satisfactory product or service to the customer remain in the process.

Wasted Motion does not happen all at one time – it may be 20 seconds here and 10 seconds there, making it extremely difficult to identify. Simple examples of wasted motion include:

  • Walking to a printer to print labels
  • Walking to a computer to access data
  • Walking to a static desk to dimension product

Not only is this waste hard to identify, it’s also very costly over the course of a year.   

What value does MotionMeter provide?

MotionMeter by Newcastle Systems is a free user-friendly app (available for both Apple and Android devices) that enables you to quickly perform your own time studies by capturing the time of core processes within your business. It can help you identify which step of the process is NECESSARY (Value Add) or WASTE (non-Value Add).

It’s also an ideal tool to capture data of specific steps (or tasks) in lieu of performing a full-scale process time study.

From there, a comprehensive overview will outline how much the wasted motion is costing your business and how much you could save annually if that motion is eliminated.

The Basics of Manual and Automated Picking

Posted June 3, 2015

Warehouse shelf unit with stock code barcode labels1. Introduction

As a small and medium size business that fulfills and ships orders for customers, the “Picking  Process”, if it is not already, will consume more  resources than any other area of your fulfillment operation. Whether you know it or not, you do already have a picking process, even if it is just  the daily ritual of taking the day’s orders and  walking out into the garage to find the items you  need to ship.

The question is, are you going to be comfortable  using that process as you grow and have confidence that you will achieve the most important objective which impacts your customers – accuracy?

Will the process that works for you now with  thirty orders per day still make sense when you  have one hundred thirty orders per day? What  about a thousand? If you are banking on your  own business success in the future, then the answer to that question has to be “No”. Yes?

Now that you know that: 1. Picking is going to  be a huge part of your business in terms of resources and customer impact and 2. Your existing process isn’t going to cut it as you grow.  What are you going to do about it?
