The CartCaddy5WP - Tug
DJProducts, Inc. is the world leader in providing battery-powered carts and assist tug to the manufacturing, hospital, and retail industries. They provide tug 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 a CartCaddy tug 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 tug to maneuver in tight areas, such as hallways and aisles, as well as open spaces. The powerful tug has a 36-volt motor can maneuver loads from 2,500 lbs. up to 30,000 lbs.
