STURTEVANT, WI – Topper Industrial, well known as a leading material handling carts manufacturer in North America has developed a fully automated transfer cart. Topper Industrial’s automated transfer carts create an efficient, ergonomic way to move material in a predetermined, mapped out, safe and reliable process. By choosing to incorporate cart delivery, users can create a better, more predictable workflow which improves production and combats unnecessary downtime.

Topper’s automated, two-position transfer cart is revolutionary step forward in how material is delivered line side, with less touching and increase safety methods. In the earlier stages of manufacturing transfer carts, the transfer was done by manually pushing or transferring the product on and off the cart. The driver of a tugger would pull up to a designated location and have to line up the cart using visual indictors or by tracking rails anchored to the floor. The driver then, would have to dismount the tugger, walk over to the container and release all necessary safety interlock and physically push the container of material into the receiving station. 

Over time, Topper’s design team started evolving their transfer cart design by moving materials with powered rollers. The new design on the transfer carts improved load capacities, ergonomics and cycle time. They still pose challenges with the alignment to the transfer locations and execution of the transfer. With extensive research and development, as well as advances in technology, Topper Industrial was able to improve solutions to the automated transfer cart design that eliminated all tracking, aligning and pushing ailments seen in the older design.
