Topper Industrial Explains How Fork Truck Free Environment Protects Workplace at MODEX

During MODEX 2018 the Topper educational seminar ( will demonstrate how implementing a Fork Truck Free environment for material flow and movement will protect the workplace from employee injuries and deaths, boost lean efficiency, and experience dramatic cost reductions.

Often what triggers better safety practices is a serious employee injury or worse yet, an employee death. There are severe cost burdens associated with forklift accidents and OSHA citations. With the unemployment rate at the lowest level since 1969, the scarce labor availability, and higher labor wages, exposes safety concerns.

Ultimately safety concerns lead to lean alternatives for manned forklift transport and continuous process improvement strategies. Flexible automation is quickly leading Fork Truck Free adoption among manufacturing companies throughout North America. Even at the lean microcosm, the simple task of moving product within a manufacturing cell rather than calling, waiting, and using a fork truck is driving huge adoption of new fork truck free technologies. A manufacturing cell can reduce part transportation because the proximity of the cell’s resources makes part transportation almost non-existent. As a result, material handling equipment can be reduced or eliminated completed.
