Fabricating and Metalworking Magazine Highlight Fork Truck Free as Part of Lean Manufacturing


Sturtevant, WI -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/05/2016 -- Fabricating & Metalworking magazine editor Tim Heston recently reported that the lean goal is to move toward a Fork Truck Free operation wherever it is practical. A Fork Truck Free system typically requires less than half of the equipment and labor because one tugger can tow from four to eight loaded carts with only one operator while a traditional system needs four employees to operate four forklifts. The leader in the Fork Truck Free movement is Topper Industrial.

Topper provides lean material handling solutions to the supply chain. Topper is able to engineer and design Industrial Carts (Mother / Daughter Cart Systems, Quad Steer Carts or Tracking Carts, Specialized Delivery Carts, Transfer Carts with Roller Deck, Static Carts, Rotation Carts, Tilt Carts or Kitting Carts), Industrial Cart Components (Parts Department), Industrial Containers (Corrugated and Wire Mesh Containers), Pallets, Conveyor Systems (Gravity or Non-Powered Conveyors and Powered Conveyors), Lift/Tilt Systems, and Racking.
