More manufacturers and distribution center executives have added sustainability as a key element to their business focus, according to Topper Industrial. Whether centered around managing a carbon footprint or pursuing continuous improvement, sustainability encompasses everything from fuel efficiency to the landfill impact of manufacturing each component of a lift truck.
Sustainability is the utilization of resources that can be regenerated as opposed to the absolute consumption of fossil fuels. The fork truck is still operational, but as efficiency and productivity is mandated; incremental improvement will migrate to fork truck free environments.
The fork truck free approach will work for any company that operates production lines and processes that are normally fed materials using forklifts; many leading distribution centers are considering driverless options. Safety was the initial driver of the FTF movement with material handling equipment including industrial carts, conveyors, lifts, lifts & tilts, shipping racks, containers, casters, and cart components. Products that keep material moving from the dock to the cart to the assembly line emphasize the importance of ergonomics and safety as top priority.
In the fork truck free space there are no engine, transmission or coolant fluid changes and no need to dispose of used fluids, oil and filters. Furthermore, batteries may be recycled. More than 98 percent of all battery lead is recycled.
