Veteran forklift maker Clark Europe says it will use February’s LogiMAT opportunity to present new products for process optimisation and cost-reduction of in-company logistics processes. They will be in hall 9, booth B61.
Among the highlights of the Clark trade fair appearance are the S-Series internal combustion engine trucks launched in early 2018. These have been improved by new Ford engines of emission level 5 and a new DBS system. With the aid of the DBS system, the forklift steering axle is stabilized in such a way that when cornering tipping danger is reduced and driving behaviour is improved. This increases not only the safety of the forklift truck but also the throughput. DBS is now available as standard on all models of the S-Series. With the S-Series with load capacities of 2 to 3.5 ton registered for the IFOY Award 2019, Clark meets the special requirements of customers worldwide with active safety systems, a smart information system, a new ergonomic workplace concept and extensive additional equipment.
The low-lift pallet truck PPFXS20 premieres at LogiMAT with a capacity of 2 ton and a battery capacity of up to 375 Ah. The new truck expands the Clark product range in the field of warehouse equipment. The vehicles feature a solid platform with lateral walls and all-electric power steering, which makes them intuitive and safe to use. A high level of safety is also provided by the automatic reduction of the driving speed in curves. The Clark pallet truck is the ideal vehicle for the loading and unloading of trucks, the transport of loads and the picking of various goods.
Another highlight at the booth will be the Clark reach trucks SRX14 / 16, with 1.4 to 1.6-ton lift capacities and 10.5 m lift heights. With their solid construction, the trucks ensure reliable operation with low service costs over their entire life circle. A functional ergonomic concept ensures that the driver does not need to do any superfluous hand movements and thus can concentrate better on his work.
Also, on display in Stuttgart is the electric hand pallet truck WPio12 with lithium-ion battery. The WPio 12 is not only the first Clark hand pallet truck with lithium-ion technology, but also sets new standards in the market for hand pallet trucks with electronic lifting and driving, a weight of just 130 kg including battery and a service life of up to three hours with fully charged battery (24 volts, 20 Ah).
At 100 % discharge, the charging time of the Li-Ion battery is only 2.5 hours. Intermediate loads are possible without any problems. With up to 1,000 charging cycles, the maintenance-free battery has almost twice the life of block batteries. Handy removable batteries are available from the factory, which can be used to easily extend the operating time.
The WPio 12 is also ideal as a driving device on a lorry; because its turning radius of just 1,390 mm is very small and thanks to the very small L2 dimension of 390 mm (length including fork back), no pallet space in the truck is omitted. At the LogiMAT, the Clark portfolio will be completed by the SX16 and PSX16 electric pallet trucks and the PX20 electric pallet stacker.
