Table of Contents
A track dolly consists of a trackless, or simple rail system, laid outdoors or on an indoor floor for transporting materials or products in a factory or warehouse. The cart or trolley is driven back and forth, helping to improve work efficiency and shorten time.
There are a wide variety of freight cars, ranging from stainless steel and other metals, to wood, depending on the application.
The track width of the track dolly and the width of the car are not fixed, but are determined according to the width of the work dolly and the cargo bed. In recent years, remote control automation has been established to move bogies remotely from a tablet terminal or console room.
Uses of track trucks include loading and unloading in logistics warehouses, and as loading carts in food factories for moving raw materials and unloading products.
These carts have been converted into amusement equipment and are still used today at mobile amusement parks and shopping center rooftop plazas as playground rides for toddlers.
For the more enthusiastic, miniature models of SL and limited express traction cars of yesteryear are sometimes set up in train yards at railroad festivals and other events open to the public to applause.
The greatest advantages of track dollies include the ability to transport large quantities, even in narrow locations with limited space, and the ease of unmanned loading and unloading, requiring minimal labour. In addition, the time saving aspect of loading and unloading fish and meat freezer operations is also a major advantage, as the work is performed under zero temperatures. The system is also advantageous in terms of hygiene, since aseptic conditions are desirable in food processing plants.
The combination of rack sorters is also useful for high-speed sorting at logistics hubs, such as Chronogate.
Remote-controlled trackless trolleys without lanes are also available. Unmanned delivery is possible even in narrow areas with limited routes.
At the seaside, track dollies can be seen at fishing ports. Together with forklifts and other equipment, they are used to transport ice from ice-making silos and to load Styrofoam boxes and bats for transfer to another floor.
