Renova’s New Cart Mover: MOVICART
The technical standard ISO 11228 “Ergonomics – Manual handling” part 2 “Pushing and pulling” specifies the risks and the recommended limits for pushing and pulling activities carried out by an adult working in an upright position, who applies force with both hands to move or stop an object.
It takes into consideration a series of variables, such as strength, posture, distance traveled, characteristics of the object, individual characteristics of the operator, work organization and thus allowing to evaluate the health risks for the workers deriving from manual transport.
In general, manual handling of loads, representing a potential danger for workers, should always be avoided. All the more reason, if the recommended limits are exceeded, measures should be taken to avoid performing the task manually.
In the paper and paperboard industry, it happens to see operators moving manually carts across the plant. Sometimes there’s just not enough space for forklifts or other material handling systems to move freely.
Keeping in mind the operator safety, Renova introduces MOVICART, the new battery-powered cart mover series.
Cousin to the MOVIROLL series, it is designed to safely move carts of any shape and dimension, both on wheels or rails, without any effort for the operator.
Handy and Heavy-duty Cart Mover
The MOVICART is able to move carts up to 5 tons. It is a convenient alternative to forklifts or transpallets. Also, thanks to the omnidirectional wheels which help to effortlessly change cart direction.
The control panel is studied to put everything at your fingertip.
Once the battery is inserted, the battery status LED will light up to indicate the charge level.
The max speed can be regulated, up to a maximum of 30 m/min and it can move both in forward or reverse gear.
Cart Mover Safety
For the operator’s safety, Movicart is equipped with an anti-crushing system. In fact, when moving in reverse gear, Movicart will momentarily reverse direction if the emergency stop belly button hits the operator, thus avoiding being stuck between the cart and other obstacles.
After placing Movicart under the cart, the operator can activate the lifter to hook the frame.
In order to adapt every type of frame, Movicart is provided with different cart gripper options of various heights and shapes.
Movicart battery-powered models are equipped with two 24 V DC IP 44 motors powered by a high-performance and plug&play 24 V lithium battery. The life span of the battery is equal to about 500 recharges and it rapidly recharges in a maximum of 4 hours.
Movicart is provided with a second battery optional. Plug & Play batteries allow quick battery changes in less than 10 seconds without the use of tools and/or electrical disconnection, thus ensuring continuity of the operation.
Movicart battery-powered cart movers are maintenance-free, with a battery warranty of 2 years.
