Electro Kinetic Technologies Ships 3,500 lb. Payload Custom Motorized Carts

Press release date: March 10, 2014

The Pony Express custom motorized cart can safely move payloads up to 3,500 pounds.

Germantown, Wisconsin – Electro Kinetic Technologies today announced the delivery of six custom motorized carts for a large international industrial client. Designed to meet their exact specifications, this motorized platform cart will eliminate excessive push/pull forces during the transport of their 3,500 pound payload.

Research studies conducted at the Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety have concluded that pull/push forces in excess of as little as 35 pounds contribute to musculoskeletal workplace injuries in employees. Because the cart without a drive system exceeded these limits, the client turned to Electro Kinetic Technologies for assistance.

During the design process, several alternatives were investigated including a dual independent drive system to assist in turning. In the end, the client selected a center mount transaxle system with a differential. The overall cart measures 109 inches in length and 29 inches wide and is designed to support the client'spayload and mounting hole configuration for their base plate and equipment. The center wheel drive system and high performance Darcordual casters give the motorized cart exceptional maneuverability in the client's tight operating area. The batteries, charger and variable speed control are housed in a NEMA 4X rated enclosure located on the front of the cart. Speed and acceleration profiles were also customized to match the client requirements.
