Jungheinrich reveals new reach truck at IMHX
Leading materials handling brand Jungheinrich has unveiled a new reach truck, the ETV 318 at the International Materials Handling Exhibition (IMHX) held in Birmingham, UK late last month.
According to Jungheinrich, one of the main characteristics of the new truck is its maximum lift height of 11,500 milimetres with a residual weight capacity of 1,000 kg. It is also capable of lifting and transporting loads of up to 1,800 kg.
Another main feature of the reach truck is its new operator-protecting panorama roof made of tinted safety glass, offering improved visibility during storing and picking operations, particularly at high lift heights.
Jungheinrich adds the machine also comes fitted with new electric steering that ensures the steering wheel knob returns to its starting position- the 9 o' clock position which Jungheinrich says is the most ergonomic whenever the truck is travelling in a straight line or when it is not in use.
Some other features of the new ETV 380 reach truck are:
- Position Control assistance system to facilitate fast and easy stacking at predefined storage heights, whereby the truck automatically recognises the right rack level when the operator moves the control lever, eliminating the need for manual selection of height.
- Warehouse Control assistance system for data transmission between reach truck terminal and the warehouse management system, allowing for datae to be processed in the vehicle and serve as set points for lift height pre-selection.
- Operation Control assistance system that uses sensors to constantly measure the payload and synchronise it with the respective lift height. If residual capacity has been exceeded, the forklift operator receives both visual and acoustic alarm signals.
- Can be outfitted with optional packages including Efficiency Plus, Drive Plus and Lift Plus depending on the workload involved.
The Jungheinrich brand of materials handling equipment is distributed in Australia by NTP Forklifts.
