New ESR 5200 Series Reach Trucks with OCS for safety, productivity
New Crown products being launched at IMHX 2013 are designed to enhance operator efficiency, improve safety and save energy. All models of Crown’s new ESR 5200 Series of reach trucks feature OCS – Crown’s intelligent Optimised Cornering Speed – which detects whether the reach truck is driving into or out of a curve and adjusts speed and acceleration accordingly. On display will be the new ESR 5220 narrow chassis reach truck and the ESR 5280S, capable of handling 1.2-tonne loads at 12-metre elevations.
New WP 3000 Series Powered Pallet Trucks
As with all Crown products, the WP 3000 Series is manufactured using steel covers instead of plastic, ensuring internal components are protected from the rigours of the busy warehouse. Crown’s innovative X10® control handle, combined with the brake override mode for working in tight spaces, provides unrivalled ease of control. Displays will include the WP 3080 – equipped with high lift forks which raise the load by 750mm to give postural relief for operators manually transferring goods from pallet to shelf, thus reducing repetitive strain problems and improving productivity.
New 80v TSP 7000 VNA Turret Truck
Crown’s new 80v TSP 7000 VNA turret truck is capable of lifting loads to heights of 17.2m while performance-enhancing control innovations help operators work more productively, even in aisles only slightly wider than the VNA truck itself.
First showing – SC 5300 Series 3-wheel Electric Counterbalance Forklifts
Integrated technologies that optimise performance, energy consumption and uptime, the SC 5300 Series features Access 1 2 3® patented on-board diagnostics, Crown-built motors, electronic braking, cornering speed control and a choice of hydraulic control levers. Optional Battery Transfer System offers an quick and secure method to exchange batteries.
Infolink® – intelligent wireless Fleet and Operator Management System
Fitted to every truck on the Crown stand, InfoLink® saves time and money by turning real-time and historic data into organised, prioritised and actionable information. InfoLink® can connect with customer’s warehouse management system (WMS) to give a new insight into operator and truck performance; by monitoring movements and picking operations.
Order picking efficiency – with QuickPick Remote Control
Crown’s QuickPick Remote system, available on the GPC order picker, features a remote, wireless control integrated into a glove worn by the operator, which advances the truck to the next pick location without the operator having to enter and exit the truck – offering immense potential efficiency savings.
