One of the most important developments is the more than double load capacity compared with the previous model, making it especially suitable for the picking of small parts of any type without pallets.
In addition to the 100 kg load capacity on the upper shelf, the EKM now has a second storage space with capacity for a further 115 kg. Additional storage compartments on the mast provide the necessary storage space for work materials.
Thanks to its new AC drive, the truck achieves a maximum travel speed of 8 km/h in order to quickly reach the next location during order picking. The 120 Ah lithium-ion battery provides sufficient energy for particularly long and intensive applications. In addition, the truck is equipped with warning zone lights that mark the potential danger zone for use in retail outlets with public traffic. The lights activate automatically when the operator platform is raised, projecting an area around the truck. The EKM guarantees safe entry and exit with automatic door locking.
Jungheinrich also offers the truck with guide rollers for use in narrow aisles or in modular racking. Thanks to its extendible mast, the EKM 202 can achieve a reach height of up to 5.3 metres. This makes the EKM a safe and efficient alternative to conventional ladders, particularly in retail outlets. Jungheinrich has provided the EKM frame with a robust metal drive frame. The processing of external plastic has been deliberately dispensed with, giving the truck optimum protection against damage. This applies in particular to the drive wheels, which have been placed within the contours of the truck.
