A large, worldwide hydraulic motor manufacturer has been a customer of Topper Industrial’s for over ten years. As the company has ventured through their lean journey, they partnered with Topper to incorporated cart delivery of hydraulic components lineside throughout their facility.  

The hydraulic company uses Topper’s patented Wheels on the Ground, Pass Through Mother Daughter Cart System. It is the most versatile and flexible solution on the market. Within the last five years, 3 Mother Carts were set to work to move material in the facility. That is three main, Mother Carts working reliably being tugged throughout the entire work shift at two shifts per workday. They are able to move material effectively by incorporating 100 daughter carts into the cart delivery process. They were able to see ROA in 7 months.

Mother Daughter Cart Systems are generally pulled by a tugger. The system consists of a Mother Cart and two or more Daughter Carts. The daughter carts are designed to fit within the Mother Carts framework. Once the Daughter Carts are locked inside, the Mother Cart and Daughter Carts are then able to be tugged as one.  Often, two or more Mother Carts will also be towed in train.

The Daughter Carts can all different types and sizes and utilize the same Mother Cart framework. 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.
