Leading materials handling solutions specialist Jungheinrich has two stands at the forthcoming Multimodal exhibition which it will use to demonstrate examples from its top-selling range of reach trucks together with models from its high level order picker collection.
Jungheinrich’s latest version of its ETM/ETV 214/216 reach truck – the world’s best selling reach truck – offers increased mast lifting and lowering speeds together with improved acceleration.
The new features combine to deliver overall operational efficiency gains of ten per cent while, thanks to advances in the truck’s software, energy consumption during a typical shift is reduced by ten per cent.
The truck has been designed to operate within the narrowest aisles. The mast is positioned between the support arms which means that a counterweight is not required and the truck can work in aisles as narrow as 2,711 mm wide: a comparable electric counterbalance truck requires an aisle width of more than 3.2 metres.
Meanwhile, the Jungheinrich order pickers on show at Multimodal are equipped with state-of-the-art RFID technology that enables a warehouse management system to automatically guide the forklift to the right location in the right aisle at all times. Tests have shown that this feature can potentially boost productivity within the warehouse by some 25 per cent.
The Series 2 and 3 – the EKS 210 and EKS 312 – vertical order pickers, have been developed to meet the growing demand for flexibility and high picking performance over long shifts.
Jungheinrich UK Ltd offers over 600 different types of pallet trucks, stackers, counterbalance trucks, reach trucks, order pickers, very narrow aisle trucks and stacker cranes. As well as this, Jungheinrich provides an extensive after-sales support network, rental and financial services, racking systems and warehouse planning. The company is a division of the German-owned Jungheinrich Group, which has manufacturing facilities worldwide.
