Topper Industrial Flexible Kitting Carts for Automotive Sector Part of Fork Truck Free Initiative

Topper Industrial has engineered a fleet of flexible kitting carts which function effectively and efficiently with tuggers that present sequenced kits of parts to each of a manufacturer’s assembly stations. The core of the system is a supermarket storage area located in the company’s warehouse. Parts and components are pulled in sequence and placed in the compartmented kitting carts that were built using proprietary pipe and joints.

Each cart holds either one product kit for single assignments or in some cases, multiple kits for small batch production. Presenting the specific kits for production offers efficiencies for manufacturing because the workers receive exactly what is needed, when needed, and no more. The cart features compartments and two shelves, all with floors and sides for damage-free parts handling and easy load/unload in the ergonomic strike zone. The cart has capacity to hang components and supplies for quick identification and retrieval.

According to Ed Brown, founder of Topper Industrial, operating in a fork truck free environment accelerates response time between order placement and production. Topper Industrial products have been deployed by vehicle OEMs and suppliers throughout manufacturing and assembly facilities worldwide for more than a decade, providing robust, smart devices, and industrial carts for all segments of the automotive industry. While working with so many major manufacturers across North America, the team understands the importance of ergonomics and safety making it the top priority when designing custom solutions for clients, which is why the company supports a fork truck free approach.
