360 degree solutions for the logistics chain
At the event, experts from Hyster Europe was on hand to discuss their full line of solutions to support different customer needs throughout the supply chain, including forklift battery management options and technologies for lift truck automation.
A Hyster® electric forklift powered by an integrated lithium-ion battery system will be on show, providing an example of the many power and charging options that are available to help meet differing applications requirements.
As well as learning about tough and reliable Hyster® trucks and solutions to support warehouse and logistics operations, visitors to the Hyster Europe stand also found out more about application specific solutions, such as the new low cabin forklift truck option for use in applications such as container stuffing – just one solution ideal for logistics operations in ports and terminals.
360 degree solutions for the recycling industry
Another example of application specific capability that was on display at LogiMAT is the Hyster® ‘Cool Truck’ package for 2.0 – 5.5 tonne Hyster® IC list trucks in the Fortens® range. This has been designed to support extreme operating environments such as paper bale handling, recycling, household waste and other dusty applications, like those found within the metal industry. The special package, which was on show at the exhibition, helps extend run time, enhancing dependability.
The experts from Hyster Europe also explained how tough electric forklift trucks are suitable in recycling applications. The three- and four-wheel Hyster® ranges offer a stable chassis, rugged mast, and durable and reliable components.
Hyster has also engineered special solutions particularly suited to large scale waste and recycling operations, such as a custom container pivot attachment for efficiently emptying containers of recyclable or waste materials.
360 degree solutions for the warehouse
At the show, a selection of Hyster® trucks to support efficient warehouse applications was also on display on the Hyster Europe stand, including reach truck, pallet truck and stacker truck options.
This represents just a small selection of the extensive Hyster® warehouse truck portfolio, which includes the RS1.6 rider stacker, ideal for variable demand and mixed applications. A new series of S1.0E-1.2E compact stacker trucks that can lift up to 1.2 tonnes has also launched recently to offer optimal manoeuvrability in tight spaces.
360 degree solutions to assist operators
At LogiMAT, there was also examples of how Hyster can assist lift truck operators for greater efficiency and productivity. All Hyster® lift trucks are designed with visibility, comfort and ergonomics in mind to assist drivers in delivering optimal performance.
To further support operators, Hyster Europe is exploring and developing an increased range of options to help improve the awareness of lift truck drivers in specific applications, including truck-to-truck, truck-to-object and truck-to-pedestrian detection systems.
Combined with cameras, telematics and other technologies, “connected” Hyster® fleets are delivering greater productivity and visibility. The Hyster Tracker telematics system, for example, can help reduce the cost of operation through increased productivity, cost control and more.
