The twin themes of the Jungheinrich stand at IMHX 2010 will be high productivity and low cost of ownership. Visitors will be able to see and discuss a wide range of products from the company’s extensive portfolio of materials handling equipment and racking and storage systems while, at the same time, enjoying Jungheinrich’s legendary hospitality.
Jungheinrich is the leading manufacturer and supplier of warehouse trucks in Europe – one in three of all the warehouse trucks operating in Europe today are Jungheinrich products – and among the trucks on display from the company’s extensive warehouse range will be: reach trucks with a lift height of 12 metres; the world’s best selling low level order pickers; powered pallet trucks – including a Lithium Ion-powered pallet truck concept – and a range of very narrow aisle stackers such as the recently launched EKS Series of order pickers that use RFID technology to guide forklifts quickly and efficiently around a narrow aisle store.
Among the products to be shown for the first time is a new model multi-directional reach truck for long load handling. The new truck has been designed to significantly reduce tyre wear during operation – thereby cutting running costs – with all three wheels powered electrically.
Jungheinrich’s range of electric-powered tow tractors, which are offered in capacities from one to 25 tonnes, will also be highlighted. No other manufacturer is believed to offer such a wide range of tow tractors and, like all Jungheinrich electric-powered handling equipment, models in the tow tractor range feature the latest generation AC motors for high productivity and low running costs.
There will also be a strong focus on counterbalanced trucks. Among the three and four wheel machines on show will be Jungheinrich’s highly popular VFG range of IC engine-powered counterbalance lift trucks which, thanks to their hydrostatic drive, are ideal products for applications where a lot of ‘shuttling’ work is involved – such as lorry loading and unloading within and around a busy warehouse or factory environment.
Used equipment from Jungheinrich’s Ready to Go range will also be on display with a ‘cut-away’ truck graphically illustrating the thorough rebuild process that all Jungheinrich used equipment goes through before being starting its second life.
Key personnel from the company will be on hand to discuss Jungheinrich’s projects and systems capabilities, aftersales support network, rental and financial services, racking systems and warehouse planning services.
"There will be a comprehensive display of products and services ideally suited to manufacturing, logistics and retail operations of whatever size," explains Craig Johnson, marketing manager of Jungheinrich UK Ltd. "A team of highly trained materials handling equipment professionals will be on hand to provide industry leading advice and operational solutions centred on creating value by increasing productivity and lowering costs."
"Our stand will be a comfortable place to spend some time amid the hustle and bustle of the show and visitors are invited to call in and see us to learn how we are helping companies – big and small – to drive operational efficiencies throughout their materials handling processes."
