We talk about the Transfer Car, a key element if you are short of space but at the same time you need to move your loads from one place to another.

First things first: what is a transfer car?

A transfer cart or transfer car, also known as a transfer trolley or material handling cart, is a specialized industrial vehicle used for transporting heavy loads and materials within a facility. These carts are designed to move along predefined tracks or rails, providing precise and controlled movement.

Transfer carts come in various configurations, including battery-operated, cable-powered, and trackless models, to cater to different material handling needs. they are commonly employed in manufacturing plants, warehouses, and assembly lines to facilitate the smooth transfer of materials between workstations or from one location to another.

With their versatility and adaptability, transfer carts play a crucial role in optimizing material flow, reducing manual labor, and enhancing overall efficiency in diverse industrial settings.


Benefits and strengths of a transfer cart

To be sure of how necessary and important are our Transfer Cars, these are 10 of their main benefits:

1. They are very versatile and have enhanced load capacity

At Crosby Airpes we design versatile Transfer Cars for all kinds of industries. They can move many types of materials with different shapes, at different speeds depending on the floor, level of security or the path where to transport your loads. They also can be adapted to different conditions, like high loads or outdoor/indoor.

A transfer car is engineered to handle very heavy loads, making it an ideal choice for heavy-duty industries. With its robust construction and sturdy design, it can effortlessly transport materials around ensuring smooth and efficient handling.

2. Can roll on the floor or on rails

Crosby Airpes can supply you a Transfer Car  to transport load on rails or on wheels, depending on your needs and what’s best for your project.

3. Move the load in tight spaces: flexible maneuverability

The key of the Transfer Car is to be able to move the load in tight spaces and optimize the room available. Also it can move in multiple directions. These features prove particularly beneficial in tight spaces or congested manufacturing floors, where precise maneuvering is essential to optimize workflow and minimize downtime.

4. Small turning radius  and seamless integration with existing systems

With a small turning radius, it is quite easy to move your load and transport it wherever you need no matter the space you have. Plus we understand that seamless integration is crucial for operational efficiency, so if your factory or plant already has other systems like C-Hooks, lifting magnets or any other or lifting device, the transfer cart can be designed to adapt to them. Our transfer cars are easily adaptable to existing material handling systems, reducing the need for extensive modifications and simplifying the implementation process.

5. Electric, electric with autonomous battery, or diesel powered

The propulsion can be electrical, in case you want to move your load within the plant, or diesel for long distances. In the case of the electric version of it, the rransfer car may come with its own battery to facilitate further work.
