100F Multipurpose Folding Cart
The multipurpose folding cart pictured here was manufactured and assembled here at
Abbot Service Company. This project demonstrates our ability to transform a 2D drawing into a high-quality finished product. Strategic planning combined with our versatile production capabilities allowed us to turn the initial order around in a short four-week time frame.
These carts featured dimensions of 21” in width x 26” in depth x 31” in height when unfolded. A nickel-chrome plating provided a hard, decorative finish able to withstand the elements in an office or production floor environment. To manufacture the carts, primary operations involved using a rotary draw bender to shape the 1.0” diameter x 16 gauge welded steel tubing components and then piercing them at precise locations using an open back inclinable press. After the components had been processed in our in-house plating area, we transferred them over to the assembly department. Our technicians, equipped with the right set of tools and a schematic, assembled the carts and readied them for packaging and shipment.
We paid detailed attention to quality at each step of the process. In addition to dimensional inspection, our procedures incorporated close visual inspection to ensure the quality of the plated finish. After the carts were assembled, each was also inspected for functionality and flatness.
The client was very satisfied with the quality of our work, prompt delivery, and favorable pricing. We continue to manufacture these carts in lot sizes from 10 to 500 units, depending on the demand cycle.
