For many years, Kalmar has been developing specially made machinery designed to handle empty containers. Kalmar's empty container handlers can be found in operation all over the globe. Kalmar provides various empty container handling machines. There are various units to be able to meet lifting height requirements and, customer's performance. 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 earned and a task to be done successfully, the containers need to be stacked and moved fast, 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 which needs precise placement.
The equipment are under such a stringent working atmosphere that this places heavy demands on the stability of the equipment, spreader and mast, along with extreme user friendly abilities throughout the handling process. Having a clear field of vision also helps to ensure extra safety for the operator and people working nearby.
The main characteristics for single stacking equipment are their high lifting speeds, overall stability and extreme flexibility. 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 equipment all around the globe. Some of the important factors to take into consideration when thinking about single stacking equipment are the limitations in ground space and the high demands on selectivity.
Double stacking the containers is one more vital step in increasing the productivity in the empty container handling operations. For an empty container handler, the double stacking situation may present an extremely demanding application. Kalmar offers the new DCE100 model that was specifically made to perform the high stability requirements of stability and strength with margin. Stacking 2 containers simultaneously is the optimum operational effectiveness which tops selectivity demands.
Kalmar has researched, designed and engineered numerous models of lift truck trucks to be able to meet a huge variety of applications.
