Motorized machine dollies’ applications
See how we solve your safety, understaffing and downtime cost issues.
Moving a laser cutter
Westrock needed to quickly move its laser cutter to resume production as soon as possible. On top of that, the machine had to be moved through very tight spaces.
Our Solo 20 made it possible to move the laser in only 2 hours in the most restricted places. Our technology saved Westrock from rearranging its environment for the move.
Moving a CNC machine
Usinage RM had to quickly move its CNC to resume production as soon as possible. The machine also had to squeeze into very tight spaces.
The Solo 10 moved the CNC efficiently. Thanks to its portability and compactness, the reorganisation of the environment took 2 hours less than with the traditional method.
Moving a rubber mixer
American Biltrite had to move its 15 000 kg rubber mixer to replace it with a new one. This change had to be made quickly to resume production and avoid losses.
The use of the Solo 20 for the replacement of this rubber mixer reduced machine downtime by 13 hours, which saved the company a lot of money.
Moving a motor
Domtar needed to replace one of their electric motors. This motor had to be placed on a mezzanine that could only be reached by a freight elevator and could not support the weight of a forklift and the motor at the same time.
The lightness of our system and its compactness made it possible to move the engine to the mezzanine, which would not have been possible otherwise.
Clean room moving
The C2MI had to move a machine into a clean room as part of a reorganisation. The space was so tight that a forklift could not get through it.
Our compact robots made it easy to move around tight spaces. Plus, our emission-free technology has helped keeping the cleanroom environment clean.
Moving mining equipment
Rio Tinto faced such a tight space that it would have had to disassemble, deliver in parts and reassemble its machine on site to get through a section containing doors.
The maneuverability of the Solo 20 in restricted space allowed the delivery of a magnesium furnace in 1 single piece. What would have been a week’s work ended up taking 2 hours.
Moving a tank
The task was to drive a tank into an underground parking lot. Because the door was too small, the forklift couldn’t get inside. According to Plomberie L&P Lavallée inc, the work should have taken two days and 6 people.
We used the forklift as a support for the robot to go down the slope! The tank was able to pass without problems thanks to the compactness of our technology. The job was done in just a few hours with only 2 people!
Moving a food processing machine
Our robots allow use in sanitary environments.
Our Solos are the tools of choice for setting up new machines.
Our Latest Projects
The Foxtrot Industrial team is now located in Saint-Hyacinthe! This move is a big step for the growth of our company. In addition to being closer to our customers, the expansion will allow us to meet the growing demand.
Big Challenge with a Client
Our team worked with Plomberie L&P Lavallée inc. to enter a tank in an underground parking lot. Because the door was to small, the forklift couldn't get inside and that's why it was instead used as a support for the Solo to go down the slope.
Ambitious project at Rio Tinto
Rio Tinto installed a new magnesium furnace. The manoeuvrability of the Solo 20 in confined spaces allowed the furnace to be delivered in one piece. Otherwise, it would have had to be disassembled, delivered in parts and reassembled on site.
