Topper Industrial Carts Promote Effective Kitting in Lean Manufacturing

Topper Industrial is a champion of material handling equipment that encourages and promotes lean manufacturing and kitting assembly; off-line inventory management shortens operator walk time. By bring materials systematically to the operators there is decreased line-side clutter on operator walk paths while permitting increased product types and variants.


Only in effective kitting is just-in-time line-side inventory achieved, which also reduces waste. Cart delivery can easily and fully integrate kitting, sequencing, error proofing, and traceability once configured; it is easily replicated across operations within a plant and/or enterprise-wide.


Cart delivery ensures that valuable time is spent on part assembly rather than wasted time finding the correct parts. Topper Industrial carts are configured to a sequencing system for off-line part pickers to stagger or reverse order parts before placing them line-side for assembly. Sequencing of cart delivery can be automatically updated based on real-time production schedules, so parts arrive in time. Nothing need be loaded on a cart unless it is gated quality controlled and parts are traceable ensuring correct part placement is verified before moving further down the line. Vision inspection systems can check for incorrect or absent parts.
