Coil Handling – Steerable Transfer Cart

A company needed to handle 15 ton coils of steel in their manufacturing facility. The coils needed to be transferred from one area to another area. Their search for equipment to use for this transfer process lead them to choose two identical steerable Transfer Carts manufactured by Engineered Lifting Systems & Equipment Inc., Elmira ON Canada.

Carts are driven across concrete floors by walk beside operators holding pendant controls (forward, reverse, left, and right). Pendants are end-to-end relocatable to optimize steering during cart travel. Each cart is battery powered and moves on three casters (two drive casters & one swivel caster) in a tricycle pattern designed to enhance cart handling and maneuverability. Each cart has three removable V-stands that cradle steel coils and evenly distribute the load. To increase functionality of the carts, the three V-stands are removable to accommodate other products and materials.
