It is simple. Material handling carts can make your processes easier. Cart delivery has revolutionized the way that materials move along a shop floor.

Take some time to consider how much time, effort and preparation goes into the everyday necessary tasks of the supply chain. Specifically, think about your supply chain. Now, consider what it would look like without the correct material handling equipment to keep it moving so effortlessly, routinely and with trusted peace of mind.

Topper Industrial has a vast capability to design and fabricate whole material handling systems. All the equipment is made to compliment each other’s purpose when utilized throughout your facility. The idea is custom. No two shops making different products perform the same way and sometimes two shops making the same end product will even need different practices and processes to fit their exact need.

Topper Industrial is a leader in design and optimization of material handling equipment. Topper products assist in the material delivery of various parts, components and whole products to your assembly line at any point of need.

Highlighted in their material handling equipment capabilities would be different types of carts. Topper Industrial creates custom carts for unique applications. Topper industrial classifies carts as follows: 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 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. 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.

Industrial Rotation Carts are able to manually rotate and position parts for minimized over reaching and lifting. A tilt 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.

Rotating the unit is effortless, just release the foot actuated detent to rotate and access your parts from any side from one position. The detents automatically lock out every 90° or 180° which secure the rotation top when operator works out of the unit. The effortless rotation is due to the heavy duty sealed precision roller bearing that can handle cantilevered loads with ease and is virtually maintenance free.

Industrial 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 a Vision Guided Vehicle (VGV). 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.

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. Transfer Carts are offered in a four wheel or six wheel design.

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.
