Hamilton Introduces New Electric-Powered Material Handling Products
the product expansion provides a cost-effective system to move loads up to 50 tons.
November 7th, 2019: Continuing Hamilton’s mission to provide simple solutions to material handling challenges, Hamilton Caster is proud to introduce (2) new product lines to its e-Power Cart & Trailer offerings. First, a series of (4) 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 (3) new e-Power Vehicles with easy wagon-style steering to push or pull payloads up to 10,000 lbs.
The (4) new pushers are designed to be more maneuverable and versatile with a smaller footprint than a forklift or AGV. e-Power Pushers are also much more economical compared to AGV’s and most other custom-engineered powered equipment. Compared to elaborate transfer cars that are designed for the proverbial “one-trick” material handling application, 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 you can imagine. Optional side-steer or remote steering is also available. The possibilities are essentially limitless. Customers are encouraged to collaborate with Hamilton’s design engineers who bring a wealth of material handling expertise resulting in designs that often exceeds customers’ expectations.
