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.

Newcastle’s Portable Printer Carts for the High Volume Warehouse

Posted October 10, 2014

heavydutylabelprintingstationAn expansive facility dedicated to shipping and receiving, warehousing, or order fulfillment and distribution continuously looks for ways to improve efficiency and productivity.  Positive improvements in these areas can start small and expand outward like ripples in a pond.

For companies with warehouse operations at the core, dramatic improvements to efficiency and productivity of the workforce happen by adding portable printer carts.  When the carts include portable power supplies, the staff celebrates and productivity can improve 50%.

Rather than having lists, labels, order picks, and inventory data produced at a stationary printing location, the staff works while on the move which reduces unnecessary downtime eliminating wasted steps.

Portable printer carts can be completely customized.  Whether you have a high volume operation or you only handle a few printing tasks a day, carts can be designed to fit your existing equipment and easily integrate into your current operation.  You won’t have to deal with potential delays or downtime as a new process is put in place.  Training is based on common sense and no special skills are required when turning a stationary printer into a mobile one.

Optimize Your Wireless Facility

The top 3 reasons to implement mobile workstations

Thanks to wireless technology, mobile powered workstations (MPWs) are opening up new frontiers of efficiency and productivity. These workstations with integrated power supplies can maneuver computers, printers, scales, barcode scanners, etc., to wherever they are needed. For some facilities, multiple MPWs can bring about a “system solution” — a whole new way of doing business. Capitalizing on the benefits of auto-ID technologies, they integrate the facility’s software with devices on the workstations to establish mobile on-demand label printing stations, mobile shipping/receiving stations, and so on.

According to the IDC’s Ops Manager, “Operators would attempt to carry multiple tickets and other documentation back and forth to the parts staging. There were significant quality issues of the wrong paperwork being attached to the wrong job.”
