Kalmar has been designing machinery which is particularly used in the handling of empty containers for many years. Their empty container handlers are now functioning and operating all around the globe. Kalmar provides various empty container handling machinery. There are different models in order to meet client's performance, and lifting height requirements. Their range stretches from a capacity of 3 high up to 8+1 high, offering optimum balance of economy.
The containers have to be moved and stacked quickly, safely and efficiently, in order for money to be made and the job to be completed. Other than driving safe and fast, the stacking has to be done independent of lifting height. In general, it is a time-consuming job that needs accurate placement.
These machinery are often placed in tough working environment with heavy demands and loads being placed on the stability of the mast and the spreader, in combination with strain on the abilities throughout the handling process. Having a clear field of vision also helps to ensure extra safety for the operator and individuals working in the vicinity.
For single stacking equipment, the main characteristics consist of their high lifting speeds, extreme flexibility and overall stability. The single handling concept begins at 3 high and stacking up to 8 high. These equipment feature twistlock attachments which are a common item on numerous Kalmar equipment throughout the world. Several of the key factors to take into account when thinking about single stacking machinery are the limitations in ground space and the high demands on selectivity.
Double stacking the containers is one more vital step in increasing the production in the empty container handling operations. For an empty container handler, the double stacking situation can present an extremely demanding application. Kalmar offers the new DCE100 model which was particularly designed to perform the high stability requirements of strength and stability with margin. Stacking 2 containers simultaneously is the optimum operational effectiveness that tops selectivity demands.
To be able to meet a huge variety of applications, Kalmar has researched, engineered and designed many units of forklift trucks.
