Kalmar has been developing machinery which is particularly adapted to the handling of empty containers for numerous years. Their empty container handlers are nowadays operating and functioning all over the world. Kalmar provides a wide variety of empty container handling equipment. There are various models in order to meet customer's performance, and lifting height requirements. Their range stretches from a capacity of 3 high up to 8+1 high, providing optimum balance of economy.
In order for money to be made and a job to be completed successfully, the containers has to be stacked and moved quickly, safely and efficiently. Other than driving fast and safe, the stacking should be done independent of lifting height. Overall, it is a time-consuming task that needs precise placement.
These machines are normally placed in harsh working conditions with heavy loads and demands being placed on the stability of the spreader and the mast, in addition to strain on the abilities during the handling process. Having a clear field of vision also helps to ensure extra safety for the operator and individuals working in the vicinity.
The main characteristics for single stacking machines are their high lifting speeds, extreme flexibility and overall stability. The single handling concept begins at 3 high and stacking up to 8 high. These machines feature twistlock attachments which are a common item on numerous Kalmar machines throughout the globe. Some of the important factors to consider when choosing single stacking machinery are the limitations in ground space and the high demands on selectivity.
Double stacking the containers is another important step in increasing the productivity in the empty container handling operations. For an empty container handler, the double stacking situation could present a really demanding application. Kalmar offers the new DCE100 unit that was specially made to fulfill the high stability requirements of strength and stability with margin. Stacking 2 containers at the same time is the optimum operational efficiency that tops selectivity demands.
Kalmar has researched, engineered and designed numerous units of lift truck trucks to be able to meet a huge variety of applications.
