Auto OEM: Dollies
Reduced fork lift traffic flow by 60%
14 different cart part designs combined
Martinrea International Inc. wanted a mother-daughter cart combination, where the mother cart transported a variety of daughter work in process carts.
HOW IT'S USED
The dollies transported multiple sub-assembly components to the line-side.
UNIQUE ABOUT THE SPECS
Mother steel cart, using four-wheel steering with mechanical latch for daughter carts. After pulling daughter carts to line, a quick unlatch was done to roll fully loaded daughter cart in line and retrieve empty cart for re-loading.
HOW WE HELPED THE CUSTOMER
During the prototype stages, we were able to help to fine tune the concept and design through a test and learn process. We tested fit and function with customer provided assemblies.
We ended up with 14 different cart designs combined, all made to carry automotive body components.
