Tuggers and Carts Help Transport Materials in Manufacturing Plants and Warehouses According to Topper Industrial

February 07 18:04 2018

Topper Industrial’s patented designs make operations more efficient, reduce noise levels, improve ergonomics, and safety. These carts are being tugged requiring less effort, as operators transport goods from warehouses to assembly lines and then to finished goods warehouses.

In the past, forklift operators were only able to transport one container of goods at a time to the production line. Once they unloaded a container, they had to return to the warehouse to refill their empty container before they could distribute products to another position on the production line.

By using a tugger and cart system, operators unload products and replace empty containers on the production line multiple times in a single pass. This approach decreases the potential for employee injuries, improves ergonomics (primarily since operators have more time to focus on other projects) and reduces noise since the tuggers and carts are often only transported to production lines once. As a result, carts are becoming more specialized, especially as their popularity continues to increase in nearly every industry that manufactures products.

Custom-built carts have driven Topper Industrial’s Ed Brown to invent carts to meet the custom needs of clients such as Anderson Windows, Detroit Diesel, Honda, Kia Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Aramark, Johnson Controls, Whirlpool, and Caterpillar.

Brown holds hundreds of patents in materials handling and insists that manufacturers must be prepared for constant variations in product mix and volume. To fully optimize space for heavy or oddly shaped loads, manufacturers are increasingly purchasing custom-built carts.
