  • Transfer Carts
    Transfer carts are movable platforms used for the horizontal movement of materials, assemblies, and other items....

  • Transfer carts were originally designed for load transfer between overhead crane bays. Carts can be used to carry loads along assembly lines, carry an entire shift of production & as a movable machine base.

    Compact in design, carts can handle upwards of 60 ton and work well in areas with limited floor space. For smaller loads, manual carts can be dedicated to specific work place activities such as shuttling material. This often makes the cart more available for use. Transfer carts are more accommodating for moving long loads through restrictive passage ways or doorways. For heavier loads, transfer carts can offer flexibility as they can be customized to suit specific needs.

    Transfer carts can reduce labor costs, optimize manufacturing processes and reduce capital costs associated with forklift systems. The end result can be increased production and throughput.

    Types of transfer carts include:

    Manual Carts: For loads up to 10,000 pounds (5 tons). Carts are on casters and are manually moved on smooth to semi-smooth floors. Typically carts of this type are used for short distances and low cycle operations. Carts can be sized according to requirements of work areas with space constraints.

    Towed Carts: For loads up to 60 tons. Carts have casters or crane wheels and are towed behind lift trucks or behind powered carts mounted on rail. They are an economical alternative to purchasing a second powered cart. Winches can also be used to pull carts of this type for on-rail applications.

    On-Rail Carts: For loads up to 60 tons. Carts are mounted on steel rail for shuttling along a fixed path. They can be AC powered or DC battery powered. Typically used for moving materials such as steel or tanks of liquids from one location to another. Larger cart capacities and sizes are available for specific applications. Custom deck frames can be designed for specific assemblies to carry an entire shift of production and even serve as a stable moveable machine base.

    Steerable Carts: For loads up to 45 tons. Carts have two fixed and two swivel casters and are DC battery powered (optional AC powered). Carts are designed to travel on smooth to semi-smooth level floors. Customization is available for specific applications.

  • Overhead Cranes
    An overhead crane, also referred to as a bridge crane, is commonly found in industrial environments. It consists of parallel runways with a traveling bridge spanning the gap. A hoist, the lifting component of a crane, travels along the bridge....

  • Unlike mobile or construction cranes, overhead cranes are typically used for either manufacturing or maintenance applications, where efficiency or downtime are critical factors.

    Standard duty top running (SDTR) style bridge cranes have a beam mounted on end trucks to form a bridge that travels on rail atop a runway. It is designed to maximize headroom and allows for higher under hook lift.

    Standard duty under running (SDUR) style bridge cranes have a beam mounted to the underside of end trucks to form a bridge that is suspended from the lower flange of a runway beam. It is designed to maximize hook approach towards runway.
