Hamilton Caster debuts electric-powered pushers for large payloads
November 12, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Hamilton Caster has introduced two new product lines to its e-Power cart and trailer offerings.
First, a series of four industrial e-Power pushers designed to push or pull in-plant trailers with load capacities between 3,000 and 100,000 lbs.
Also, Hamilton is introducing three new e-Power vehicles with easy wagon-style steering to push or pull payloads up to 10,000 lbs.
The four new pushers are designed to be more maneuverable and versatile with a smaller footprint than a forklift or AGV.
Hamilton’s pushers can move a multitude of materials in varying sizes and shapes in and out of hard-to-reach areas. To facilitate quick connects and disconnects, Hamilton engineers have designed linkages between the powered and non-powered elements to work seamlessly together.
The in-plant trailers that link to the e-Power pushers and the decks of the e-Power vehicles can be designed with custom sizes and superstructures to address a wide range of material handling challenges. For custom superstructures think of cradles, shelves, tool holders, part carousels – or any other fixture. Optional side-steer or remote steering is also available.
