When there’s nowhere to turn, it’s Hamilton trailers to the rescue
Tuesday, May 02, 2017
Wednesday, April 26, 2017 - In the world of heavy-duty manufacturing, space can sometimes be at a premium. And that’s okay, when you’ve got Hamilton custom carts on the case.
We recently helped a world leader in wire and coating haul heavy coils in tight spaces. The customer had previously been racking up costly bills using expensive semi-trailer trucks to move product across the street from one building to the other. They needed a more user-friendly, cost-effective way to get the job done 24/7. And because there was no room to turn the trailers, Hamilton designed a reversible train system that easily changes direction. Tongue couplers at both ends make it easy to attach and disconnect tuggers moving to and from the two buildings.
Toot, toot. All aboard that gravy train to better productivity.
