MasterTug moving glass stillages

Sensitive loads and busy production environments make material handling a challenge   

The movement of loads such as stillages, lamination carts and A-frame carts is often completed manually in glass manufacturing.

Typically requiring the combined effort of multiple production employees, manual handling presents both safety and efficiency challenges for glass manufacturers.

With heavy loads and repetitive movements, glass manufacturers looking to slimline material handling processes, improve safety and maximize efficiency, trust electric tuggers to deliver. 

Achieve safe, controlled movements of sensitive loads and equipment  

Enabling the effortless, controlled movement of heavy loads, our electric tuggers and tows help glass manufacturers eliminate manual handling and increase operational efficiency.

Able to move a wide variety of loads and equipment, electric tuggers empower a single operator to move even the heaviest loads with total control, freeing up staff to focus on more productive tasks.    

The benefits of electric tuggers in glass manufacturing 

With no operator license required, electric tuggers enable glass manufacturers to eliminate manual handling and reduce their reliance on lifting equipment.

Benefit from maximum control and reduce the risk of damage to loads and equipment with secure handling solutions, perfect for tight spaces.

Our components are precisely balanced and, when these were being moved with a forklift truck with a limited turning circle, it was proving difficult. Now we can move the loads safely and easily while keeping components at ground level.

Your Questions, Answered - FAQs

What are electric tuggers used to move in glass manufacturing?

Used across glass manufacturing, electric tuggers are used to move a wide variety of loads, such as:  

  • Lamination carts
  • A-frame carts
  • Stillages
  • Materials  
  • Glass handling equipment 
What’s the benefit of electric tuggers over traditional material handling equipment?

Glass manufacturers looking to eliminate manual handling in the movement of heavy loads and equipment often look to utilize existing lifting equipment.

While lifting equipment is ideal for the loading and unloading of equipment, using equipment such as side loaders and forklift trucks to lift wheeled carts presents safety risks.

Replacing one risk with another in congested production environments and using large lifting equipment in internal factories increases the risk of collisions with equipment and pedestrian traffic.  

Is an operator license or training required? 

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

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

How are electric tuggers powered?  

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

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

How do electric tuggers and electric tows connect?     

A range of coupling options is available across the range that maximizes performance, security and safety.

Custom coupling solutions can also be designed for unique applications.
