At IMHX 2016, Jungheinrich will be showcasing and demonstrating the significant customer benefits delivered by its broad range of materials handling products and intralogistics solutions.
With the theme ‘Jungheinrich Intralogistics. Your Connection to a World of Solutions.’ the company will showcase how leading companies in the UK across diverse industries including manufacturing, warehousing, transportation and logistics, retail and wholesale and are boosting operating efficiency and throughput, improving safety, increasing energy savings, reducing total cost of ownership and ramping up productivity.
This year at IMHX, Jungheinrich will have multiple stands representing different, key areas of focus. There will be the Jungheinrich Main stand, the Jungheinrich Used Equipment stand - featuring their 5-Star re-manufactured trucks and a live auction for used equipment, the Jungheinrich Intralogistics Solutions stand within the Automated Materials Handling Systems Association (AMHSA) pavilion and the Apprenticeships and Human Resources stand - to support the rapidly expanding skilled workforce requirement in its UK operations.
The main stand will feature sections dedicated to specific benefits of the company’s range. For example, within the area devoted to Safety Jungheinrich will be showcasing a number of new technologies and assistance features which improve warehouse safety, help prevent accidents and reduce cost of damaged goods.
Space in the main stand will also be dedicated to Efficiency. Jungheinrich will showcase how the company is leading the way in improving intralogistics efficiencies with solutions that increase throughput, maximise truck fleet utilisation, and optimize personnel effectiveness. A great example is the new Jungheinrich easyPILOT on the ECE horizontal order picker.
This innovation significantly improves picking performance while relieving strain on the driver. The truck automatically moves with the operator and stops as soon as he uses the remote control or reaches a predefined destination. As a result, both the operator’s hands are free to focus on order picking and unnecessary, repetitive actions can be avoided, saving time and fatigue.
There is a dedicated area for to Jungheinrich Integrated Energy Solutions for reduced energy consumption, reduced carbon footprint and increased productivity which enables multi-shift operation with no battery change. Jungheinrich has a proven track record with fully integrated Lithium-Ion batteries since 2011 with 12V and since 2014 with 24V.
At IHMX 2016 Jungheinrich introduces the first Lithium-Ion batteries in the 48V range with 360 and 480Ah. This completely maintenance-free technology, which delivers high value, a small carbon foot print, fast recharging times, a long battery life, and is capable of short interim charges, can now be applied to reach trucks and counterbalance forklifts.
Visitors will be able to view the latest electric pedestrian forklift fitted with lithium-ion technology - the EMD 115i. Thanks to the battery‘s compact dimensions this is the world’s shortest in its class.
Jungheinrich will also showcase it focus on Flexibility. Flexibility will be highlighted through the company’s extensive product range of materials handling solutions from entry level models to the most complex automated solutions, most of which have broad optional capabilities and can be customised for specific needs.
Two Jungheinrich solution highlights at IHMX 2016 are the live demonstration of its state-of-the-art Automated Pallet Mover and hands-on access to its new Very Narrow Aisle EKX 5 Series. The EKX 5 is the winner of the 2016 “International Forklift Truck of the Year” (IFOY) award.
Jungheinrich is the only logistics systems and materials handling equipment vendor able to deliver solutions that meet customer needs across the entire intralogistics spectrum, from a single hand pallet truck through to a fully automated turnkey warehouse solution.
