Industrial Carts and Trolleys
Our custom designed and standard heavy duty industrial materials handling carts and trolleys provide mobility combined with ergonomic design for ideal movement, positioning, delivery or transfer of parts and product through warehouses, factories and distribution centers.
- Welded or bolted steel cart construction
- Load specific, heavy duty designs
- Electric, hydraulic and pneumatic alternatives
- Comprehensive standard product line
- Manual, tugger or guided vehicle interface (AGV, AGC)
- Full line of accessories for specific plant or warehouse use
Moving products through a factory, warehouse or distribution center often comes down to the basics: tuggers, material handling carts, trolleys and casters.
Tugger cart systems work almost identically to a real train, but on a small focused scale just right for your operation. The train itself has a powered tugger operated by a person (like a locomotive) that tows a connected train of several non-powered carts and trolleys.
AGV & AGC Carts
Our carts can also be towed by AGVs or AGCs (Automatic Guided Vehicles/Carts). AGVs or AGCs are self-guided vehicles with on-board controls and either on-board or inductive power supply. They can be used for production processes or delivery, with specialty engineered part-holding details, pallet rollers, or scissor lifts mounted on top.
Cart and Trolley Casters and Wheels
Available in both rigid and swivel, our heavy duty casters and wheels are designed and built with our dual bolt pattern allowing for perfect alignment. All bearings are sealed for smooth and reliable long term operation. Our casters are:
- Ideal for minimizing push/pull resistance
- Capable of high speed towing
- Capable of handling high dynamic loads
- Highly resistant to wear and tear
- Resistant to oils, greases and solvents
- Hydrolysis and microbe-resistant
- Able to retain flexibility in cold temperatures
Why are Custom Designed Tugger and AGV Carts and Trolleys Important?
Off the shelf industrial heavy duty carts, trolleys and wagons aren’t always a good fit for pull behind material handling tasks involving custom picking, tilting or parts subassembly transfer operation. In these unique situations, a custom solution is often more cost effective for material transport in the long term.
Track Systems has built its reputation on being able to design and build tugger and avg cart and trolley solutions for use in countless unique warehouse and manufacturing plant material handling situations. We ensure the right product for your industry specific job and will help you maximize moving and accessing goods throughout your plant. Here are just some of the specialty items we offer:
- 4 Wheel Carts
- 6 Wheel Carts
- Handling trolleys
- Heavy duty industrial carts
- Hydraulic lift carts and foot pump lifts
- Magnetic tape guided carts
- Pallet jack lifts, tilts and carts
- Picking carts
- Quad steer carts
- Rotating Carts
- Scissor lift tables and carts
Why Are Tugger and AVG Carts A good Alternative To Forklifts?
With the exception of shipping and receiving, in most manufacturing plants, forklifts are not permitted for the simple reason that forklifts are dangerous. Forklifts are frequently involved in accidents and cause personal injury and expense to the business.
In comparison, tuggers and tugger carts (or AGV carts or AGCs) are often associated with lower initial and operating costs. The ability to carry multiple loads at one time, deliver bulk parts bins or pallets, move kit carts, tote boxes and individual parts, and their ability to operate as mother daughter or conventional and hitch carts makes tugger a good and safe alternative.
What Are Heavy Duty Industrial Material Handling Carts and Trolleys?
A cart or low profile flatbed trolley is a standard piece of equipment used for transporting materials in either distribution or manufacturing environments. They feature a straightforward design with a flat deck base and wheels (casters) on the bottom. They provide a platform for pushing or pulling materials.
Organizations that need to process, transport, manufacture, or distribute high volumes of materials understand that having the right pallet cart or flatbed cart can save an extraordinary amount of money in the long-term. The carts can be equipped with casters that have no brake or floor-lock brakes. The dollies can be customized for any container size like Gaylord containers, knockdown containers, wooden or plastic pallets, or larger custom applications. Weight limitations range from 1,000 – 13,000-pounds depending on specification. We also design and build heavier duty carts and trolleys to your specification examples include 60 degree tilt carts, quad steer bulkhead carts.
