Narrow Aisle are exhibiting their extensive range of Flexi articulated forklift truck-based intralogistics solutions at Logimat 2019, which takes place in Stuttgart in February. Models in the Flexi range can operate in aisles as narrow as 1.6 metres. Among the models on display at Logimat will be an upgraded version of the Flexi LITE, designed for applications where handling equipment has to weigh as little as possible, such as facilities where trucks need to travel across loading bay dock plates into vehicles or be moved in goods lifts between floors.
The popular Flexi LITE is offered with an integrated four-stage ‘Quad’ lift mast, making it highly suited to stuffing and de-stuffing ISO containers. The Flexi LITE, which conforms to all European Stability and Security Standards, has a chassis width of just one metre and can operate in aisles as narrow as 1.8 metres. When fitted with a four-stage (quad) lift mast, the truck can lift a palletised load weighing 1200kgs up to 6 metres high and, like all Flexi models, is designed to work both inside and outside.
Other innovative Narrow Aisle solutions on show at Logimat include the Flexi AC StorMAX. An advanced intralogistics concept combining very narrow aisle operation with the ability to store two pallets deep up to 11 metres high, the StorMAX can service over twice as many pallet locations as a traditional reach truck. Visitors to Narrow Aisle’s stand can also see the FlexiPiCK, a case layer picking order assembly solution designed to eliminate manual case picking, providing pick rates of 1,200 cases per hour per man.
