Topper Industrial Focuses on Improving Productivity at MODEX

Topper Industrial is focused on the correlation between Fork Truck Free (FTF) and improved productivity. Part of the educational session hosted by Topper Industrial ( will look at improved productivity. More than 50 percent of all new distribution centers and manufacturing plants include a mission statement requiring that all new lines will be FTF. The need for creative, innovation solutions is in direct proportion with the demands of complexity, kitting, and efficiency while increasing safety, reducing line side inventory, delivering parts accurately, and increasing quality.

For manufacturers, throughput in production can mean the difference between meeting quotas and losing customers to the competition. Falling behind on manufacturing throughput means delayed deliveries, which can cause customers to find other, more timely suppliers.

Finding effective ways to increase throughput helps manufacturers meet their quotas and satisfy their customer. Before delving into tips for improving throughput, it’s important to note that there’s a difference between throughput and output. Basically, output is your total production, including scrap, rejections, and stockpiled products, while throughput only counts the parts that are successfully delivered and accepted by the customer.

Manufacturers reliably increase throughput and improve productivity in the fork truck free environment by eliminating material flow bottlenecks. One of the most effective ways to improve throughput in manufacturing and distribution is to carefully analyze production processes for bottlenecks. Once identified, production delays can be eliminated.
