Customised transport and handling solutions: Stand 6 B 101

Combilift Ltd. will be exhibiting a selection of its wide range of multidirectional and customised handling solutions, designed for the safe, space saving, cost effective and very productive handling and storage of long loads as well as palletised goods. The Irish manufacturer’s focus at this year’s show is on the smaller models which can work in narrow confines and aisle-widths to maximise available storage capacity.

Combilift’s Aisle-Master articulated model can replace a combination of reach and counterbalance forklifts and works in aisles as narrow as 1.6m, lifting to impressive heights of 15m to optimise pallet density in the warehouse. It also makes light work of loading and offloading in semi-rough yards and direct trailer to racking transportation of loads increases productivity by reducing time consuming double handling. Tough, powerful and built to last, the various models in the range are available with lift capacities of up to 2.5t, with LP Gas or electric power options. The trucks have an unrivalled track record of reliability, and low running costs and excellent ROI are just some of the further benefits.

A further exhibit is the Combi-WR – the first pedestrian operated model from Combilift, which was developed for customers needing a cost effective and smaller unit for handling lighter loads. Suitable for both pallet handling and for moving longer loads, it offers a high level of operator comfort and safety when placing and picking in narrow aisles. The patented multi-position tiller which allows push button rotation of the rear wheel parallel from the tiller to the chassis and back enables the operator to remain at the side of the truck rather than between the truck and the racking, so eliminating crush risk and improving forward visibility. With electronic power steering, pantograph and side shift functions it is the only pedestrian reach stacker range which can work in an aisle-width of 2.1m pallet to pallet.

Completing the line up on the stand is the Combi-CBE – an electric powered counterbalance design truck with multidirectional capability. More compact than a traditional counterbalance truck, the Combi-CB handles palletised as well as long loads and as such benefits operations that need to move and store diverse sizes of products whilst also enabling them to make optimum use of storage space. Its versatility enables it to offload from HGVs, bring product directly to racking or free stacking areas as well as to feed production lines. Its compact dimensions offer a further advantage: the low profile design enables it to enter into containers for stuffing and destuffing, considerably speeding up this procedure.

Combilift offers the most extensive range of specialist handling solutions from any one single manufacturer. Its various models have lift capacities from 1t to over 80t, with choices of electric, LP Gas or diesel power, and are all customised to individual requirements.
