Material handling challenges in brick and ceramic manufacturing 

Within the manufacture of bricks and ceramics, heavy, fragile loads can make finding suitable material handling solutions a challenge.

With manufacturers often relying on a combination of manual handling and forklift trucks to push loads such as heavy kiln carts, the risk of product damage is high.

Safety Managers looking to remove the risk of injury are increasingly looking for safer solutions for moving heavy loads in brick and ceramic factories.   

Controlled movement of loads for maximum safety

Enabling a single operator to move loads of 70,000kg and beyond, electric tugs enable brick and ceramics manufacturers to reduce the risk of product damage and improve workplace safety.

With no operator license required, loads can easily be moved as and when required, optimising production flow.

Robust designs guarantee the powerful, controlled movement of loads, delivering unrivalled visibility – perfect for moving loads into kilns and positioning completed products.     

The benefits of electric tugs in brick and ceramics

Compact but powerful electric tugs enable brick and ceramic manufacturers to safely move loads such as kiln cars, moulds, oven kilns, other materials and completed products with complete confidence.

Your Questions, Answered - FAQs

Is an operator license or training required? 

No, unlike lifting equipment such as forklift trucks and cranes, an electric tug does not require a license to operate. A license-free operation reduces downtime and maximises operational efficiency, reducing wasted time waiting for a licensed driver.    

Minimal training is required to safely operate an electric tug and we offer training packages to suit every requirement.     

How are electric tugs powered?  

Electric tugs are battery powered, with interchangeable batteries or lithium options available, electric tugs can deliver 24/7 operation to keep your processes moving.

Offering zero emissions from the point of use, electric tugs are ideally suited for indoor use, replacing internal combustion engine (ICE) powered equipment such as forklifts or tow tractors.   

How do electric tugs connect?    

A range of coupling options are available across the range that maximise performance, security and safety.

Custom coupling solutions can also be designed for unique applications.
