Energy saving forklifts at Foodex

Visitors to the Jungheinrich stand at the forthcoming Foodex show can see an example from Jungheinrichs EFG range of electric counterbalance forklift trucks.

The EFG trucks feature fourth generation AC technology - which means that they offer class leading performance and the lowest running costs.

Ultra environmentally friendly, Jungheinrichs fourth generation AC technology ensures that the EFG range achieves constantly low battery consumption. Energy costs are further reduced thanks to energy reclamation during braking so that, in most applications, a truck will operate for two shifts without the need for a battery change.

In fact, according to independent tests, during a typical shift the EFG will operate for up to half an hour longer before a battery charge is required than certain of its competitors. This could equate to de-stacking an extra lorry load.

In addition, Jungheinrich will use Foodex to highlight its EMC electric-powered pedestrian stacker truck. The EMC is an entry level truck that is ideal for the food sector. It can be used to carry out a multitude of handling tasks and applications - from depositing goods on racking to feeding production machinery.

The EMC comes with a built-in charger that can be plugged into any 13amp socket as standard.

Jungheinrich UK Ltd offers over 600 different types of pallet trucks, stackers, counterbalance trucks, reach trucks, order pickers, very narrow aisle trucks and stacker cranes. As well as this, Jungheinrich provides an extensive after-sales support network, rental and financial services, racking systems and warehouse planning. The company is a division of the German-owned Jungheinrich Group, which has manufacturing facilities worldwide.
