BriefingWire.com, 12/19/2016 - Topper Industrial addresses common myths of adopting industrial carts in fork truck free manufacturing environments. The first myth is “Carts are too difficult to push.”
The myth that carts are too difficult to push is partially true; some carts are made only to be tugged, therefore pushing would be difficult. The truth is there are numerous industrial carts designed to be easily pushed.
Even the sturdiest of steel carts can be made light weight and carts using high quality casters with precision bearings are made for easy maneuvering. Pushed, pulled, tugged, it really depends on the cart content, which needs are figured into the design and use of the carts.
Mismatched wheels, or wheels unsuitable for a specific application, have the opposite of the desired effect; they risk failure that can damage operating equipment. Selecting the wrong wheel can lead to work slowdowns, stoppages, or even safety hazards.
Industrial carts serve an integral part in the transportation and movement of material to various locations. Not only does a cart offer transportation solutions, it improves lean efficiency and worker productivity. It is imperative to carefully consider important factors to choose the correct size and configuration best suited to the required application.
