- Selling jointly a basket truck rear wheel attachment jointly developed with Nippon Filing Co., Ltd. (patent pending) -

ZMP Inc. (Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Taniguchi Hisashi , hereinafter ZMP) has started selling basket traction towing option set with the logistic support robot CarriRo (hereinafter CarriRo).

Following the one-touch tow attachment for slim cart which started receiving orders in September 2018, one-touch attachment for basket trolley will be released. The one-touch traction attachment is not divided between the CarriRo side and the truck side as in the past, but it is installed only on the CarriRo side, and normally it is stored in the towing part, and the towing part is hooked on the bogie side when towing It is. This simplifies attachment and detachment of the attachment, greatly reducing the time required for attachment and detachment.

In addition, some customers who are using four-wheeled basket trucks may swing left and right with a curve at the time of towing use, there are cases where traveling is not stable, and there are cases where it is difficult to use CarriRo by towing.

Following these challenges,in collaboration with Nippon Filing Co., Ltd., we developed an attachment that fixes the rear wheel of a basket car.We will sell (this attachment is patent pending).By using the attachment that fixes the rear wheel, The left and right swinging at the time of the curve disappears, stable running can be realized.We will further contribute to more efficient transportation and labor saving.

For these basket drag traction option sets, we will begin shipping from November 2018 at a price of 110,000 yen (excluding tax) as a set with one-touch tow attachment (basket truck specification) and rear wheel fixed attachment as a set.
