CarryMax® Heavy-Duty Bi-Directional trailer

tuggable_bi-directional CarryMax Heavy Duty Bi-Directional Trailer


Jtec Industries, Inc. has developed a new Heavy-Duty Bi-Directional Trailer within its CarryMax® product line. This trailer is capable of carrying up to 5,000 lbs of materials with its two-rigid and two-swivel wheel design, allowing it to immediately be reconfigured with one turn of an ergonomic handle resulting with one rigid wheel and three swivel wheels so it can be pushed multiple directions (including perpendicularly) when it reaches its towing destination.



As far as we know, this versatile trailer is a first-of-its-kind, with no other industrial trailer on the marketable to be safely towed with two rigid rear wheels that are able to be unlocked and switch orientation to allow the trailer to be pushed in opposite directions immediately. This innovative product maximizes line space and adds flexibility to trailer control while being pushed or towed in different directions, dramatically changing route delivery safety practices. This is a substantial improvement, including ergonomic and safety considerations, to existing devices used in many industries.



While there are many 4-wheel swivel caster carts and trailers on the market, they do not compare to the CarryMax® Heavy-Duty Bi-Directional Trailer because of lack of towing capability. Without CarryMax’s Heavy-Duty Bi-Directional Steering Control System, trailers are too uncontrollable to tow safely and efficiently. This trailer application is currently being used in massive warehouses and manufacturing facilities needing optimum versatility with its material handling trailers.

Jtec Finishes Strong at ProMat 2019

MVIMG_20190408_151343639 Jtec at ProMat 2019

That’s a wrap for ProMat 2019! This past April, the Jtec sales team (plus a few additional team members) spent a full week at booth S1684 at ProMat Show in Chicago. This trade show spanned 400,000 square feet of exhibitors at McCormick Place, all focused on showcasing the latest trends in the manufacturing, distribution and supply chain industry to over 45,000 attendees.

 

 Jtec was just one of 1,000 exhibitors at ProMat but we showed our competitive edge with the demonstration of CarryMatic No-Touch Materials Movement System. This was our first time showing CarryMatic at a tradeshow since introducing the system at Modex in 2018. This autonomous solution, which integrates with AGV tuggers to move materials from one location to another in a facility, proved to be a big hit and reinforced the rising need of autonomy for materials movement in manufacturing and distribution facilities worldwide. Plus, CarryMatic was recently voted as Product of the Year, 2018 by a leading industry product review magazine!
