Industrial truck specialist Clark (represented locally by Kempston Material Handling) will be presenting numerous innovations in the field of electric counterbalance trucks and warehouse technology at LogiMAT in Stuttgart, Germany from 19 to 21 March 2024.
The highlights of Clark's stand include three new electric forklift truck series with lithium-ion technology, which are intended to replace and supplement the existing Clark electric forklift truck fleet. The new electric forklift trucks are designed for a wide range of applications. With the emission-free electric forklifts, Clark is aiming to make their intralogistics more sustainable and climate-neutral. The new electric forklift truck series with 48 and 80 volts cover load capacities from 1.6 to 3.5 tonnes. With numerous ergonomic improvements and modern safety functions, they ensure maximum efficiency with a low total cost of ownership.
The LWio15 low-lift pallet truck with a load capacity of 1500 kg is designed for light transport tasks and for use over short distances and is equipped with a long-lasting and powerful Li-ion battery. It also proves its worth in space-critical work areas and narrow aisles. The pallet truck drives and lifts purely electrically, so that the operator can operate the device without any effort.
For more demanding applications in pedestrian operation, the PWio20 low-lift pallet truck has a load capacity of 2000kg. This manoeuvrable pallet truck proves its worth, particularly when transporting heavy loads in goods distribution, production or warehousing. The pallet truck is supplied with a Li-ion battery (24V, 100Ah) and an integrated charger. The compact and lightweight PWio20 is ideal for use in confined working areas, such as warehouse zones, sales rooms or for transporting on lorries. The side support castors ensure excellent stability and climbing ability on uneven surfaces or ramps.
Thanks to its exceptional manoeuvrability, the Clark SWX16 high lift truck with a load capacity of 1600 kg is ideal when goods need to be moved quickly and safely in confined spaces with a hand-operated device. With a maximum lift height of 5500 mm, the pedestrian stacker can also reach higher shelves.
Kempston Material Handling Division Manager, Grant Brehany is excited about the prospect of the revised SRX 16 Reach truck, LWio15 & LWio20 Lithium Powered low level pallet truck and the SWX16 Electric High lift Pallet truck being launched here in SA. “These products are sure to make an impact in the South African market in the months to come” he concluded.
