Topper Industrial is a leading manufacturer of material handling carts. A material handling cart is basically a four or six wheel cart used to help transport materials.

The materials transported can be small and light or they can large and heavy. Ideally, Topper Industrial is a leader in the industry for carts because of their ability to design and build custom innovative carts for very different and unique applications. Topper Industrial specializes in services to the Manufacturing, Fulfillment, Warehousing and Distribution Sectors. Each with different goals and purposes.

Benefits of Cart Delivery with Topper Industrial

  • Improved Productivity vs Unneeded over production
  • Better Safety Practices
  • Increased Flexibility vs Rigid Processes
  • Process Stability and Simplification vs Non Value-Added Processes
  • Inventory Reduction vs Excess Inventory
  • Earlier Quality Identification vs Mass Quantities of Defects
  • Reduce Costs & Labor vs More Fork lifts and Under Utilized workforce
  • Lean Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 Compatibility as previously discussed.

Material movement using a cart delivery works in two ways. Companies can deliver material on carts and work with out of that cart or companies can have material delivered using a transfer cart and transfer the material by roller to a work station.

Topper industrial classifies carts as the following: Static Carts, Tilt Carts, Rotate Carts, Quad Steer, Transfer Carts, Specialty Carts and Mother Daughter Cart Systems.

Static Carts are rugged industrial push carts with 2 rigid wheels and 2 swivel wheels (or four outer swivel wheels and two center rigid wheels). Static carts have the ability to be tugged or pulled in a row. The material handling carts have improved push pull forces and optimal tracking when being pushed and pulled.

Topper Tilt Carts are a rugged industrial cart consisting of a unique upper frame work that fits specific content and tilts to a designated degree.  The cart comes equipped with the patented Hydraulic Speed Dampening Cylinder, which tilts at a controlled, slow speed. The most common requested degree of tilt is 30, 45 and 60 degrees, but the carts can be custom designed to virtually any angle. Material Handling Tilt Carts provides for a safe and controlled tilt movement in a full to empty application. There are also custom side tilt carts capable of presenting material in unique applications.

Rotation Carts are able to manually rotate and position parts for minimized over reaching and lifting. A rotate cart is a specified industrial cart base with a rotating top. The tops rotate 360 degrees to the various operator work station. The operator is able to rotate the unit by releasing the foot actuated detent to rotate and access parts from any side from one position. The detents automatically locks every 90° or 180.° This secures the rotation top, so that the operator can work out of the unit safely. The effortless rotation is due to the heavy duty sealed precision slew bearing that can handle cantilevered loads with ease and is virtually maintenance free.

The Topper designed Quad Steer Carts are rugged industrial carts with all wheel steering. Quad Steer Carts can be pushed and have the ability to be tugged or pulled in a row. Quad Steer Carts are used in conjunction with a tugging vehicle such as a tugger, or Automated Guided Vehicle. Quad Steer Carts are used to deliver and pickup material from a specific route along the factory floor. The Quad Steer Cart can remain attached to vehicle with multiple carts in tow. There is no need for uncoupling during delivery and pick up applications. Quad Steer Carts are often referred to as Tracking Carts or Delivery Carts.

Topper Industrial transfer carts prove very innovative for the materials delivery to the supply chain. A transfer cart is an industrial delivery cart that is equipped with a conveyor roller top. The rollers aid in the transport of specific content in a conveyor like manner. In fact, most transfer carts are used in conjunction to a stationary conveyor system as a way of getting material to and from the conveyor.

The trending 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 frame work. Once inside, the Daughter Carts are locked into the Mother Cart and the two carts are 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 can also be referred to as Corral Cart.
