As the size of the product becomes large, handling starts becoming an issue. Product has to move from stage to stage during production, during assembly, during packing, and transportation. While it is easier to handle small and medium-sized products, it is difficult to handle large size products smoothly not only due to the bulk but also due to weight. The designer has to keep this in mind in the initial stages while designing the product. The aim is to protect the product from scratches, dents, moisture, fungi, drops, falling offs, and so on.
Large size products make use of inbuilt Hooks, trolleys, pallets, etc., Provision must be made for them.
Mid-sized products use Handles, Conveyors, Mini Pallets, etc., Provision has to be made in the product by way of appropriate legs, hold up areas etc.,
