20 Ton Die Handling Cart Ships – News – Engineered Lifting Systems

ELS recently designed, manufactured and shipped a 20 ton capacity steerable battery powered Mentor Transfer Cart with a custom deck fixture designed to cradle both halves of a die used in the automotive metal stamping industry. The custom fixture was designed with four flip-out panels to accommodate the unequal die halves. Panel flipping is accomplished with the aid of an overhead crane.

After being removed from the press, the die may need to be transported to the maintenance area for repair. The travel path of the die included maneuvering through a door way and negotiating several turns. The Mentor Transfer Cart easily accomplishes the customer’s requirements. A forklift was not a viable option for this application due to space and capacity requirements.
