It will feature multiple CarryMore Tugger Cart System Mother and Daughter Cart solutions, including its newest electric lift Mother Cart; its most current CarryMatic No-Touch Materials Movement Cart System; its MoveMore-40 Heavy Cart Mover, and more.
“MODEX and (its alternate-year companion show) PROMAT are our biggest advertising investments each year,” said Jon Peterson, Jtec CEO. “This year is our biggest booth footprint ever, so we have plenty of room to demonstrate more of our award-winning solutions. We are expecting a large volume of visitors to our booth and plan on taking the time necessary to learn about their specific needs and inform them fully of our capabilities,” he added.
Jtec will be hosting daily drawings for Apple AirPod Pro headphones to qualified visitors registering at the booth following demonstrations.
About Jtec Industries
Jtec Industries was established in 2004 and has since transitioned into a completely vertically integrated Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) in Central Illinois which designs and manufactures specialized industrial cart systems to move materials throughout facilities, world-wide. Jtec’s award-winning tugging solutions improve safety and efficiencies and lower operational costs for materials handling operations. For efficiency, safety and related cost reduction reasons, tugging is rapidly replacing historically hazardous forklifts currently used for deliveries throughout manufacturing locations.
Jtec has four product lines presented at Modex: CarryMore®, CarryMatic®, CarryMax® and CarryLite™.
The patented CarryMore® Mother/Daughter Tugger Cart System consists of Mother Cart trains pulled by industrial tugger vehicles that carry various Daughter Carts loaded with materials. A simple, mechanical Elemate™ loading and unloading solution safely allows Daughter Carts to ride off the ground during towing, eliminating noise and caster wear, all while tracking precisely behind the tugger. Elemate also has a gravity-release feature which ensures no pulling effort is required to release carts off of their Mother Carts, maximizing safety for operators. Mother Carts are designed to hold up to 4000 lbs. of combined materials and Daughter Cart weight. Jtec’s All-in-One Daughter Kit Cart was voted as a Product of the Year in 2017.
Its patented CarryMatic® No-Touch Materials Movement System is an autonomous smart cart system that carries materials to and from other autonomous line-side stations in an unmanned operation. CarryMatic integrates with existing line-side equipment to transfer materials seamlessly on to and off of these powered cart trains. CarryMatic was voted as a Product of the Year in 2018.
The CarryMax® product line features heavy-duty trailers to haul very heavy materials, from 3,000 lbs. and up to 20,000 lbs. Typical trains are no more than three carts long and usually one or two to maximize turning capabilities.
Its CarryLite™ product line consists of four- and six-wheel towable flatbed carts designed to carry materials under 3,000 lbs. These can be towed in trains or separated and pushed by hand to desired destinations throughout a facility.
