Order picking up to 6.5m
12 December 2012
Hyster has launched a new order picking machine for businesses storing and picking items at heights of up to 6.5m. The compact K1.0L series travels and lifts simultaneously, and is said to deliver superior performance a
The new model builds on many of the features of the innovative Hyster VNA (Very Narrow Aisle) truck and will help managers to increase pick rates, reduce operating costs and improve energy efficiency.
"Order picking at height relies on good travel and lift speeds and a truck that makes it easy for the operator to pick and drop off loads," explains Robert O'Donoghue, warehouse product manager for Hyster Europe.
The new Hyster K1.0L is available in various configurations with platform heights up to 4.8m, 1,000kg load capacity. The models use similar technologies to those developed for the Hyster VNA products.
"The basic principles of medium level order picking parallel those found in man-up VNA operations for which we have developed market leading technology,"O'Donoghue adds.
