The twin themes of the Jungheinrich stand (19 L100 & 142) 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 portfolio of materials handling equipment and racking and storage systems while, at the same time, enjoying Jungheinrich's hospitality.
The company claims that 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 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.
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 suitable 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.
