Topper Industrial Improves Flow of Materials in Assembly Facilities

Topper Industrial has been committed to improving the flow of materials for an assembly facility by supplying custom material handling equipment that receives supplied parts through receiving docks and transfers the parts to material storage locations and then to part usage locations. The locations of the receiving docks, storage locations, and line locations are predetermined, but the assignment of parts to dock locations, storage locations, and the material flow paths through the facility are decision variables.


With line-side delivery, carts design decisions such as the dock strategy employed, and the configuration of the storage areas lead to additional decision variables. The goal is to reduce overall material handling costs by effectively receiving, storing, and transferring the material from loading docks to line locations using cart delivery. The Topper team runs various cart delivery routes and scenarios showing an improvement in the material handling costs of nearly ten percent as compared to the status quo.


Topper engineers find material handling equipment solutions with benefits based on the location, size, weight, frequency, and space available for each production and manufacturing application. Topper Industrial holds many patents which specialize in moving parts, taking packaging, ergonomics, and part presentation each essential to material handling equipment that promotes effective material flow. The primary goal of Topper Industrial is to safely move material using cart delivery and compatible equipment in a manner which is most efficient both in saving money and ensuring safety.
