Transferring material is a key component of the material handling process that needs to be efficient and effective. Topper Industrial is able to create very innovative transfer carts for the materials delivery to the supply chain. Transferring materials using Cart Delivery has become a trending, beneficial mode of transport for materials line side.

Cart Delivery is the use of industrial carts to move material without the use of fork trucks (also, termed as fork lifts).  Industrial carts can be pushed or pulled by a material handler and they can be tugged or pulled in a train of multiples. By choosing to incorporate cart delivery, users can create a better, more predictable workflow which improves production and combats unnecessary downtime.

Material flow using a cart system 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.

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. Most transfer carts are used in conjunction to a stationary conveyor system as a way of getting material to and from the conveyor. Topper Industrial is able to retrofit a cart design so that it is able to work with an existing conveyor system or line side equipment.

Topper Industrial’s development of the automated transfer carts has been a game changer. It creates an efficient, ergonomic way to move material in a predetermined, mapped out, safe and reliable process. Topper’s automated transfer cart is revolutionary step forward in how material is delivered line side, with less touching and increasing safety methods.

The automated transfer carts create an efficient, ergonomic way to move material in a predetermined, mapped out, safe and reliable process. 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. 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.
