Major car manufacturer uses CartCaddy's to maneuver door panels into robotic jig fixture
DJProducts, Inc. is the world leader in providing battery-powered carts and assist tugs to the manufacturing, hospital, and retail industries. They provide solutions that eliminate the pains and strains associated with manually pushing heavy carts and wheeled equipment.
A tier 1 robotics integrator for a major car manufacture was given the task of designing a robotic work cell to fabricate car doors. The jig assembly holding the door weighed close to 5000 lbs and needed to be pushed into the robotic work cell. They chose CartCaddys to help them eliminate a possible injury from manually pushing them into position. One operator now can easily and safely change out a finished car door.
The compact, ergonomic design allows the CartCaddy5WP to maneuver in tight areas, such as hallways and aisles, as well as open spaces. Its powerful 36-volt motor can maneuver loads from 2,500 lbs. up to 30,000 lbs.
