Industrial Carts with Tuggers Save Energy According to Topper Industrial
Tugs consume less energy than forklifts because forklifts require two electric motors—one to lift and another to operate the drive—while tugs need only one motor, according to Topper Industrial. Most of the energy forklifts consume is lifting loads. Because tugs and carts handle more load volume per move, less energy is consumed than by the multiple trips a forklift must make to deliver the same amount of materials.
Since tuggers and industrial carts deliver several containers in a single trip, they use less energy compared to forklifts that must travel back and forth just to finish the same delivery. This reduced energy consumption also leads to less waste emission, supporting best-practice lean manufacturing principles.
In addition to reduced energy consumption, there is a significant reduction in labor required in each delivery. With the traditional delivery system, several people are required because one person must drive the vehicle and another person to unload the cargo, then more people to load a new cargo. Tugger cart solutions require only one person for all three jobs.
Tugger trains of Topper Industrial carts have more than doubled in popularity in the past five years as many manufacturing plants recognize the numerous advantages over customary forklifts. Delivering items from one location to another efficiently, and in half the time used by forklifts, makes so much sense with the Topper guaranteed durability and efficiency.
