Transport carts prevent contamination of parts, materials or mixtures that move through processing areas, some of which may not be “clean” . In medical or pharmaceutical facilities, sterile drugs can safely move through potentially contaminated areas. Carts are also valuable for temporary storage.
The distance to be traveled is most important in determining overall design. If travel will be 50-75 feet or less, then the unit can be electric powered, which will allow for a more spacious, lighter, and energy efficient cart, at a lower cost. Greater distance will require battery power, meaning space and power must be allocated for the batteries, and their weight.
