When companies use a fork truck to go back and forth between the dock and the plant floor for assembly, it is an extraordinary waste of time according to Topper Industrial. It is 100 percent antithetical to lean manufacturing principles. A tugger with eight carts can accomplish all the functions in one continuous trip; the need to double back to “home base” is totally eliminated. One driver pulling multiple carts to one destination is best-practice. It is a true process improvement.
Each cart connected increases productivity, speeds line delivery rates, and reduces overall operator costs. The time saved moves manufacturers toward the fork truck free journey.
Topper Industrial Mother/Daughter Cart is an industrial cart system consisting of one large mother cart and two or more, smaller daughter carts. The daughter carts are designed to fit within the mother cart’s framework. Once inside, the daughter carts are locked into the mother cart. The mother cart and daughter carts are then able to be tugged as one. Daughter Carts are often different types of carts.
For instance, One Mother Cart can be designed to carry a static cart as a daughter cart and a rotation cart as a daughter cart. The Mother/Daughter Cart System is a very flexible, effective cart system. Mother/Daughter Carts pulled by tuggers present materials or kits to the production line; then disconnecting the carts from the train. Fully loaded carts resupply the line; empty daughter carts previously delivered with materials are loaded back to the mother cart to be refilled. It is efficient, lean, and saves significant time.
