But what about if they break down?
Unlike fixed infrastructure systems, electric tugs deliver a cost-effective, scalable solution that even in the event of a breakdown, doesn’t result in production grinding to a halt.
The scalable nature of electric tow tugs mean that manufacturers can have multiple electric tugs performing a range of jobs – such as the movement of sub-assemblies from building to building or the delivery of kits lineside.
Having multiple electric tug units enable you to keep production moving, scale up or down operations as required and implement flexible handling systems at the push of a button.
This also means that in the unlikely event of a breakdown, other electric tugs can step in and carry out the movement.
How do they work?
You need flexibility, that’s why our range of electric tugs has been designed around the needs of industrial manufacturers.
Our electric tugs and tows are available as pedestrian-operated, wireless remote-controlled or, for where more future-focused systems are required as AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicles).
We use an array of coupling systems to deliver complete control and powerful performance, enabling you to easily manoeuvre heavy parts and sub-assemblies.
Boasting an array of standard safety features, electric tugs deliver the efficiency improvements you need, without compromising on safety.
