Sturtevant, WI -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/18/2015 -- According to Topper Industrial, the fork truck free approach will work for any company that operates production lines and processes that are normally fed materials using forklifts; many leading companies are considering these new vision-guided driverless options. For more than twenty years, Topper Industrial was featured in the current issue of AutomationMedia.com. The feature, titled, "Fork Truck Free: Driving Safety and Profitability," by manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler, discussed how fork truck free systems may be a safer and more profitable alternative to forklifts.
Seegrid Corporation and Topper Industrial have joined forces to provide vision-guided vehicles (VGVs) and cart-based materials handling solutions. The partnership, according to Chris Visnic, vice president of sales and services for Seegrid, provides VGV and cart-based solutions that work together to increase productivity, drive efficiency and reduce labor costs for materials handling. The solution combines Seegrid's tow tractors with Topper's industrial cart systems to form trains carrying multiple loads in one trip.
