Topper Industrial refers to fork truck free cart delivery as the use of industrial carts to move material without the use of fork trucks (also, termed as fork lifts).  Cart Delivery is the use of industrial carts to deliver material to a designated areas line side.  Industrial carts can be pushed or pulled by a material handler and they can be tugged or pulled in a train of multiples. Material Handling Delivery Carts can be towed by tuggers and Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs).
AGVs are designed to work with lean manufacturing ideals in mind. There are various types of AGVs on the market. The AGV/ Cart Delivery dynamic produces more flexibility, ease of use and increased production along a material handling assembly line. Additionally, the incorporation of AGV and delivery carts to a company’s material handing processes proves essential in providing increase efficiency and reduce costs when related to the job of material movement from dock to and from warehouse to the assembly line.
The 4-wheel static tunnel cart has a 50 x 50 frame work and is designed for AGV tunnel tow. When using tunnel tow an AGV will position itself beneath a delivery cart. The AGV is equipped to recognize the delivery cart once in specified positioning. Each AGV manufacturer with tunnel tow does this in different ways. This particular AGV has a ring configuration that prompts the pickup and drop off of the cart. The static cart equipped with a lever that when engaged up hooks to the AGV to be picked up. When the lever is released down, it will separate and drop off the delivery cart. The AGV follows lines on a floor that are mapped out to be followed automatically throughout a factory layout. AGVs with tunnel tow are designed to tunnel under carts to keep footprint of AGV and cart to a minimum.
