A global leader in heavy equipment manufacturing was adding a new production line and streamlining its build assembly process. This required moving assemblies, weighing up to 18 tons, along a linear path. The company needed an easy, efficient way to move these heavy assemblies on demand.
Engineered Lifting Systems & Equipment (ELS) had the ideal solution to meet the company’s needs — a 20-ton rail-mounted, battery-powered transfer cart with integrated lift deck.
The transfer cart was designed to travel on a floor-embedded rail along a linear path of 90 feet. The rail was embedded in the floor to keep the floor surface unobstructed. In addition, the cart was designed to be positioned under a work table used for assembly placement. The combination of cart and table allowed for quick transfer to work cells along the rail path. The table top’s machined surface is smooth for precise assemblage.
Another feature, the hand-held pendant with push button, provides control for cart movement in forward or reverse. The hand-held remote is used to raise and lower the lift deck from the lowest position where it has clearance for moving under the table, to its highest position where the table is lifted off the floor several inches for travelling along the rail path. The lift table has an interlock, preventing the cart from moving if the lift deck is not in the fully raised or lowered position. Cable reels manage the lift deck AC power during deck lifting operations, and the on-board battery charger cable makes for convenient recharging.
