Topper Industrial, leader in the material handling equipment industry, is featured in the current issue of Quality Digest. Manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler authored the feature article, titled, “The Next Layer of Lean Manufacturing,” examined how fork truck free systems drive improved throughput and diminishes cost of poor quality.
According to Ed Brown, founder of Topper Industrial, often referred to as the Father of the Fork Truck Free movement in North American, commented, “State-of-the-art tow tractors coupled with industrial cart systems act as trains carrying multiple loads in one trip; this type of solution is very efficient for moving material, replacing one-load-at-a-time delivery. Cart-based solutions have evolved where they can operate in a wide range of applications, including parts delivery to a production line, kitting, or for sequenced cart orders delivering smaller loads more frequently. There is a direct positive impact on throughput.”
