Material Handling Carts Designed for Industrial Equipment Manufacturing

Last Modified: 11/02/2022

FlexQube manufacturing carts are built for transporting and presenting large and heavy materials, and we have worked alongside many Heavy Duty Industrial Equipment manufacturers.

FlexQube solutions have been able to help these customers create manufacturing carts that are durable enough to withstand the heavyweight of the materials, not only for static force but also dynamic force. We think moving the equipment easily is a part of increasing efficiency. FlexQube carts are easy to move, robust, and last over time.

Even though our material handling carts are heavy-duty, it is also possible to rearrange the cart after your requirements. If your materials change, you can also change your FlexQube material handling equipment. You don’t have to through used material handling carts away, simply just update and improve your warehouse carts. It will save you both money and time.

Below we have outlined a number of material handling carts that have been created and are currently used by large industrial equipment manufacturers, in the USA, and throughout Europe.

It is equipped with a handlebar for manual pushing by an operator. However, this manufacturing cart can also have a tow bar added on to be towed using a tugger train system. This particular cart is lifted by a bridge-type mother frame but can also be towed using another tugger train system or with a tow bar. Placed on the top shelf is also a thin layer of rubber to provide further protection of the parts.

However, it can also be equipped with a tow bar if needed. This material handling cart comes equipped with a fence around the outside to ensure the materials are secured onto the shelves. This cart is used by a large industrial equipment manufacturer in Sweden. They have a kitting process with manual movement between the warehouse and assembly line. The cart is lifted by an order picker to be filled with a variety of bins, parts, and heavy metal parts. Then sequenced to the line where they assembly huge equipment for the forestry industry.

To reach your warehouse full efficiency potential, you have to take your warehouse material handling equipment handling into consideration. Questions such as routes, stations, materials, distance, and ergonomic play an important role when making decisions about what type of industrial material handling carts you should go for. Going forward, automated material handling solutions is also something to consider.

Here are some useful tips when choosing your warehouse material handling equipment:

  1. Determine the most appropriate distance that should be covered.
  2. Facilitate material damage reduction in order to improve their quality.
  3. Reduce total manufacturing time through well-designed material movement.
