Topper Industrial specializes in the design and building of custom delivery carts for material handling. Ed Brown, founder of Topper Industrial holds many patents for components and the mechanics of custom-design carts. Industrial carts can be pushed, pulled in a train, they are able to turn in tight spaces, and can link to complimentary vehicles like tuggers and automated guided vehicles. Topper Industrial is a pioneer in developing fork truck free operations in North America.

Unlike other industrial cart manufacturers with standard product lines, Topper is able to cater to the fact that not all material processes are the same and that can also be ever changing.

Topper Industrial holds a US Patent No. 10,093,334. The patent covers Topper’s Walk Through, Wheels on the Ground Mother Daughter Cart System. This Mother Daughter Cart system is an industrial cart system that consists 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.

Most other systems have the daughter carts load from one sides only. Daughter carts will be pushed up into a ramp on the Mother Cart for transport or get lifted up. Topper Industrial’s daughter carts are able to be locked into the frame with wheels on the ground for transport and the operator is able to utilize the cart from both sides with a unique ability to push the carts all the way through the frame. This way, the mother cart and daughter carts are then able to be tugged as one.

Daughter Carts can be and are often different types of delivery carts. In the video below, you will see how the wheels on the ground system works with four static shelf daughter carts.

Ed Brown explains “the differentiation of these carts is found in the simplicity, functionality, maintenance, and overall operation. This is why the train of carts is towed by a tugger tractor and can make smooth, tight turns that are crucial in a factory with narrow aisles.”
