The previous two weeks once again saw truckloads of new equipment coming into the yard here at SJF. It started with Dave Kieper and Sam Sterner taking down conveyor previously sold by us. One advantage to buying used is the high chance of selling the equipment right back when changing the facility! In and out in two days only, and there is now over 150′ of great shape used Ermanco Lineshaft conveyor in stock here in Winsted.
Wire baskets have been a hot commodity upstairs in the Sales room lately at SJF, so we could not pass up the opportunity to purchase over 900 barely used collapsible wire baskets from California late last week. These should be arriving here in Minnesota any day now.
If ever given the opportunity to purchase some great shape, heavy duty beams, we never pass it up.
These Keystone style beams recently came in from the East coast. We even hired a different crew out there to do the banding and loading work for this purchase, and couldn’t be any happier with the results. All in all it was a great buy working with great people.
This pallet flow rail came through and had us drooling here at SJF. It looks like the rail is new and never used. We jumped on this immediately and had it sent straight here all the way from South Carolina.
This carousel is almost an exact match to that we purchased last week. Located right here in the Twin Cities, we couldn’t say no. This carousel is in absolutely pristine condition, and we look forward to receiving it in early March.
2012 started out fast here at SJF. Sam Sterner and Director of Manufacturing Brian Springer arrived in Phoenix, AZ on January 2 to load out conveyor bound for our inventory here at SJF in Winsted, MN. The goal was simple, load out as much conveyor and conveyor parts as possible. This recent purchase gave us the opportunity to provide usable parts, such as drives and tails, for pieces we already have in stock.
With conveyor spread across the warehouse, it made packaging the material almost a scavenger hunt. Totes full of unknown parts were lining the top levels of the rack, and many contained valuable parts to piecing together conveyor systems. We ended up sending two trucks back to Minnesota, both loaded to the brim with conveyor, drives, nose overs, feeder beds, and other parts usable with most conveyors.
Just posted – a new video of 13 Diamond Phoenix Vertical carousels currently available from SJF.com
The last two weeks started with a 14 hour day in Worthington, MN. SJF recently purchased 540 pallet positions of Drive-in-Rack from a company located there. Sam Sterner headed down in the morning to assist in the final teardown, banding, and loading of the components. This is truck 1/2 for the day leaving loaded with uprights and rails for the system, headed straight to a customer in Fargo, ND.
The Worthington, MN shipment occurred on Wednesday, December 14. Friday, December 16 and the following Monday were spent in Plymouth, MN installing pallet rack for a new Polaris Industries showroom. The rack was set to allow display of ATVs and accessories for sale.
The week of 12/19 also had the arrival of several trucks from a recent purchase in Jeffersonville, Indiana. These trucks came loaded with rack now available in stock in Winsted, MN. A brief list includes-
48”x20′ Speedrack Uprights – 204 ea
108”x4” Speedrack Beams – 621 ea
96”x4” Speedrack Beams – 528 ea
48”x 20′ Teardrop Uprights – 40 ea

The recent weeks also included the testing for SJF’s carousel software. The first run through should be up and running soon for our first customer here in the Twin Cities metro! This is an exciting new venture in carousel controls, and can drastically improve efficiency in your carousel system. The best part, it works with any and every carousel. Contact us today with more information on this new product!
Four days before Christmas, Sam Sterner headed to Rogers, MN to band up another recent purchase of Sturdibuilt pallet rack. This included 144”x6” and 144”x3.5” Sturdi-Built beams, 48”x10′ Sturdi-Built uprights, and 144”x5” Teardrop beams. These were brought right down the road to our stock in Winsted, MN. These are very nice, heavy duty beams available now!
The month of January looks to be just as busy for us here at SJF. Already in the works is truckloads of conveyor leaving Phoenix, AZ; three carousels we purchased in the Twin Cities; a large warehouse full of structural racking in Ohio; and many more projects around the country, so stay tuned!

Winsted, MN – (May 5, 2008) SJF Material Handling of Winsted, Minnesota has announced the introduction of Chameleon Carousel Controls™ for use with any make or model of vertical or horizontal carousel. Chameleon can be adapted to any carousel, says SJF’s President Stafford Sterner, even carousels declared obsolete or no longer supported by the manufacturer. Chameleon allows clients to once again utilize older systems they already have and put them back into operation. Chameleon was developed in response to the market’s need for an alternative custom solution that provides the necessary components needed to retrofit existing carousels with a fully functional control panel and touch screen interface.
Users can use the touch screen to select a bin location and automatically bring the part to the operations area. The carousel can also be run in Manual or Jog mode, and the system includes full diagnostics and error messages. Encoder type carousels can be “Homed” automatically, or proximity carousels can be positioned at any location.
“The key benefit Chameleon offers,” says Sterner “is the elimination of the need to purchase unwanted upgrades in order to maintain warranty and support on an existing system.Chameleon Carousel Controls provide an economical option.” For users requiring more sophisticated search and retrieval tools, SJF is currently testing a PC-based software control option due for release later this summer.
In business since 1979, SJF Material Handling Equipment (SJF.com) is a Winsted, Minnesota-based full service provider of new, used and “renewed” material handling equipment & services. Services offered include complete design, layout, engineering, installation, project management and systems integration services.
