Six new Hyster® electric lift trucks which feature special engineering to meet the demands of brewery operations have been provided to the Heineken Ireland site in Cork. Heineken Ireland is a wholly owned subsidiary of Heineken International, whose portfolio of brands includes Heineken, the best-selling beer in Ireland, Murphy’s, Amstel and Coors Light. Its site in Cork, founded in 1856, employs 458 people and ships 2 million kegs per year to pubs, hotels, restaurants, supermarkets and wholesalers. As such, the brewery’s yard operations are intense, loading and unloading on average 20 lorries each day. “Empty kegs arrive every day and have to be unloaded and placed on a conveyor to take them to the production area,” explains Matt Hardy, Industry Manager for Hyster Europe. “At the

Hyster® lift truck solution simplifies loading trailers with paper reels

To simplify the process of loading trailers with paper reels in line with industry best practice recommendations, Hyster Europe has specially optimised the J5.5XN6 electric lift truck. “When transporting paper reels by road, it is typical industry best practice to load and position the reels down the centre line of the lorry trailer in single file to help evenly distribute weight and improve stability,” says Josie Burrell, Industry Manger for Hyster Europe. “This would ordinarily require a 7-tonne capacity lift truck with an attachment spacer to reach over the trailer bed and handle the reel,” she continues. “However, the Hyster® J5.5XN6 lift truck with tilting carriage option and a reel clamp attachment makes all of this possible with a 5.5-tonne capacity lift truck instead.”

New self-drive lift truck solutions from Hyster Europe will enable the automotive supply chain to introduce “affordable automation” for repetitive handling tasks, the company says. Intelligent Hyster® trucks can help support Industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution, through reliable consistency, with the flexibility of manual use to perform additional tasks and support the “unexpected”. “Repetitive lift truck tasks can be unnecessarily expensive,” says Tracy Brooks, Industry Solutions Group Manager for Hyster Europe. “The automotive industry has been adopting automated technologies in its factories to keep the busy production lines running smoothly, while driving down cost.” Hyster ‘Driven by Balyo’ technology uses reliable Hyster® lift trucks with the addition of robotic c

Hyster launches spreader support device for safer container handling

Handling
In order to improve efficiency in the time-pressured shipping container handling sector, Hyster Europe has introduced a spreader support device option for its empty container handlers, designed to accelerate the inspection process of such containers. “To help them remain competitive in container inspection, maintenance and repair operations, the visual inspection of empty containers needs to be as efficient as possible,” explained Chris van de Werdt, product strategy manager, EMEA Big Trucks for Hyster Europe. The key element of the spreader support device is that it helps eliminate a stage in the inspection process, as empty containers will not need to be set down for inspection. Instead, the spreader holding the container is firmly locked in place at a height of about 1.80m. At

Hyster Europe is simplifying warehouse operations where space is at a premium with a tilting mast fork lift. Extending the range of its Reach Truck series, the new, compact machine provides improved manoeuvrability, even in narrow aisles. “The new Hyster Reach Truck models are designed for retail, food and drink warehouses operations in mind, lifting up to 1,400kg and reaching heights of up to 7.5m” said Timo Antony, area business director for Central Europe, Hyster. “These operations typically have tight spaces, so we have included a mast which can be tilted back.” An integral side shift and compact chassis design also help improve productivity, storing and retrieving goods even in tight spaces. The titled mast now features on the R1.0E, 1.2E and 1.4E models of the range w

Hyster introduces “damage avoidance” solutions for handling paper reels

Handling
Hyster Europe is helping businesses in the paper supply chain to reduce paper reel damage with a combination of damage avoidance solutions. The company also expects to improve the efficiency and productivity of drivers handling the giant paper reels and reduce the overall handling costs. “In the paper industry damage limitation is among the most important factors when handling paper reels, whether in storage or production areas, or on the ships or quayside,” says David Reeve, Industry Manager, Counterbalance Solutions for Hyster Europe. Reels range from 500mm to 4.6m in height, with widths usually up to 2500mm (sometimes more), and a weight between 500kg and 8 tonnes.
