LIFT TRUCKS FEATURE


leg room compared with industrial trucks fitted with standard steering columns. The operator can easily adjust the comfortable seat and benefit from fatigue-free stacker operation, says Jungheinrich. The lifting mast design ensures improved view of the payload, forks and general working area. “Good all-round visibility is conducive


both to relaxed yet concentrated and safe truck operation and higher handling turnover rates,” concludes Scheithauer. At CeMAT Jungheinrich will present a


range of completely redesigned and reengineered driver workstation already integrated in the latest series of its hydrostatic drive trucks, Series 4 and Series 5 electric counterbalance trucks.


OPTIMAL WORKSTATION “We want to provide truck drivers with an optimised workstation,” explains head of product and portfolio management for counterbalanced trucks Stefan Pfetsch. “To this end we took a holistic approach to developing a driver-oriented operating concept.” Technical innovations in and around


the driver workstation include the new Duo Pilot control unit integrated in the multi-adjustable armrest, giving the driver precise and responsive control of all operations. The driver can freely


configure the new Duo Pilot – just like the further developed Solo Pilot and Multi Pilot controls. Precision steering combined with excellent all-round view of the payload has further increased the truck’s handling turnover rates. A completely new interactive driver


dialogue system rounds off the new workstation. While driving, the multi- function display keeps the driver informed in real time on the status of all situation relevant details, providing only information relevant and necessary to the actual situation. The control panel features freely


assignable function keys, for example, to activate optional modules including driver assistance systems, further improving ergonomics, safety and productivity. Apart from the ergonomic aspects, developers working on the new driver workstation focused on practical detail solutions to improve the routine work of the driver. That is why they fitted a generous storage compartment under the arm cushion and a USB port as a power source – for instance, for recharging smart phones.

PLUG-AND-PLAY POWER


EnerSys has extended its range of Hawker XFC batteries with 2V cells to provide materials handling equipment manufacturers and operators with even more choice and flexibility to specify plug-and-play power sources that can be charged for as long and as often as required to support operational autonomy. There are now 30 models with


capacities between 130 and 750 Ah (C5) in industry standard sizes. Combining advanced performance and high efficiency with low overall cost of ownership, they are suitable for applications including reach trucks, counterbalance and pallet trucks; order pickers and automatic guided vehicles. Minimum gassing ensures they can be used in retail areas, public spaces and sensitive manufacturing locations. The battery is virtually maintenance-free and no water topping-up is necessary. Highly resistant to shock and


vibration, They are designed for a high energy throughput of up to 160% of C5 every 24 hours.
