How should the production floor be laid out for an efficient sandcarving process?

Most businesses that have a sandblaster struggle with this area, but really it’s something anyone can set up properly, given the right amount of space. A production room needs to be able to move stenciled crystal to the sandblaster, and from the sandblaster to the cleaning area, quickly and efficiently. It can be as simple as a cart with supplies that carries the substrates from one area to another, to a more advanced system with rolling racks with bins moving items from one area to another. The basic premise is to not physically carry items all day to and from the sandblaster, but rather multiple objects at once.
