Topper Industrial Fork Truck Free Initiatives Drive Industry 4.0 Maximizing Manufacturing Efficiencies

January 03

Topper Industrial Fork Truck Free (FTF) initiatives are an extension of Industry 4.0. Integrated supply chain management utilizing Fork Truck Free (FTF) initiatives are revolutionizing the way products are designed, produced, and delivered, according to Topper Industrial. Maximizing efficiencies and savings with a connected supply chain are achieved with Topper’s mother-daughter carts.

Mother-daughter carts are an industrial cart system consisting of one large mother cart and two or more, smaller daughter carts. The daughter carts are designed to fit within the mother cart’s framework. Once inside, the daughter carts are locked into the mother cart. The mother cart and daughter carts are then able to be tugged as one. Daughter carts are often different types of carts.

Prescriptive analytics are also part of an FTF initiative. By maximizing outcomes based on predictive analytics ensures optimal uptime and sustained performance. Carts are delivering a high-level material flow, bringing the right product to the line at the correct time.

Real-time visibility allows carts to be monitored and reduce (even eliminate) fork truck utilization. Insightful decision-making becomes possible in the FTF space because all raw materials, finished goods, are delivered to a manufacturing cell or shipping dock precisely as needed. Zero wait-time is accomplished which eliminates downtime, improves labor efficiency, and ensures maximum productivity.

Because Industry 4.0 is an extension of both engineer and IT, the ability to properly sequence production becomes an automated exercise. Industry 4.0 represents the way in which FTF initiatives capture the convergence of the digital and physical worlds—including information technology and operations technology.
