Mother-daughter cart consists of multiple carts, daughter, that sit within the main cart holder, mother. This method of material handling has simplified the process by allowing the daughter carts to be unloaded without disconnecting from the mother cart.
The mother daughter cart process allows for smaller but more frequent deliveries giving the manufacturing or custom manufacturing process the flexibility it needs to produce its orders. Mother daughter carts are often used in work cells located outside of the production lines, which can deliver a variety of parts and items in a sequential order, giving the work cell what it needs with the processing space allotted.
The daughter carts can be flexible to the needs of the work cell. The daughter cart can sit static on the mother cart, or can tilt and swivel for easy unloading. The mother cart can move on its own or attach multiple mother-daughter carts to a tugger.
