UniCarriers launches new low level order picker
13 June 2019
The models are designed to lift heavier loads and round out UniCarriers range which was refreshed two years ago.
UniCarriers is introducing a new product range of order pickers, and the first model, a low level order picker, has now been launched. It is available in four models for lifting capacities from 1,200 to 2,500 kilograms, the new low level order picker enables fast, cost-efficient and ergonomic order picking.
Getting in and out up to 300 times, starting and stopping again – countless small interruptions define the picking processes in warehouses. During one shift they add up to an immense loss of time – which is becoming an ever greater challenge in view of the increasing need for efficiency in logistics. To minimise those effects, UniCarriers has developed the new O-range. Starting in July, the globally active manufacturer of industrial trucks will first be offering the four models OLP, OEP, OLH and OEH – order pickers with and without lifting platforms and Ergolift. Further models are to follow in autumn.
One of the key features of the new low level order pickers is their Instant Launch technology that allows the driver to accelerate immediately when boarding without having to operate the presence switch. The vehicle reacts without delays and response times are significantly reduced compared to conventional order picking trucks. The vehicle also reaches top speed quickly, thanks to the new Boost Effect technology. If necessary, the driver can press both acceleration keys simultaneously and bring the low level order picker to its maximum speed within seconds.
The speed of the warehouse employee determines productivity during picking, therefore convenient, intuitive and ergonomic operation is crucial. Numerous well thought-out design elements of the new series help to process orders quickly and flexibly. Access to the driver's platform with bevelled sides – the new 3D Step-In – is convenient and safe.
The operator floor area has a step height of only 123 mm, which is below the industry average. With 300 entries and exits a day, a difference of only a few millimetres per step adds up to a significant reduction in physical strain on the driver. The platform design, with its damping system and gripped surface structure of the floor provides support without restricting the driver's mobility. Additionally, the new order picker is equipped with a seat that folds into the back wall, and the comfortable X Control steering wheel offers the driver multiple grip options, which reduces strain and excessive neck angles while reversing.
