Order picker performs to 14m
07 March 2019
Jungheinrich has released a new generation of its successful EKS medium/high level order pickers.
As a result of numerous new developments, the truck achieves optimum performance with high storage density in a small space, while being the fastest truck with the largest order picking height for use in high-bay warehouses.
“We have trimmed the new EKS 412s for maximum performance – and in all matters that are important for use in the warehouse: performance, efficiency, ergonomics and safety,” explains Jungheinrich’s Christian Erlach. “This enables us to offer our customers significantly higher throughput in their narrow aisle warehouse.”
The EKS is equipped with a staging-free triplex telescopic mast. At more than 14 metres, the EKS offers the largest order picking height among all vertical order pickers on the market. With a lifting speed of 0.5 metres per second, the EKS 412s is 25% faster than its predecessor.
Jungheinrich offers the EKS 412s with two battery options: lead-acid batteries and lithium-ion technology.
The transition-free strokes of the new telescopic mast avoid shock impacts and enable comfortable operation.
Growing dynamics in the warehouse are creating ever more potential dangers. Therefore, another focus in the development process of the new EKS 412s was the issue of safety. Intelligent assistance systems ensure maximum safety combined with high travel dynamics and performance. These include a mobile personal protection and collision protection system, which thanks to obstacle detection by laser scanners ensures that the EKS complies with the necessary safety clearances. This enables the use of multiple trucks in a narrow aisle.
