New high capacity mother carts deliver machined parts

Kinetic Technologies, Inc. has introduced a new “gantry” style mother cart that moves three daughter basket carts totaling up to 3,000 lbs.  The daughter carts are rolled onto a gas spring controlled drop ramp from either side of the mother.   Mother carts feature reverse coupled caster steering for tighter tracking and less drift in corners, less than 1” ground clearance and built-in guide rail bars for daughter carts.  Three mother carts per train may be used depending upon tug capacity and aisle clearances. Standard features include; clevis and pin hitch, spring loaded self-stowing tow bar and low noise 6” and 8” debris shedding wheels.
