Kalmar has been making machinery that is particularly utilized in the handling of empty containers for numerous years. Their empty container handlers are nowadays functioning and operating all over the world. Kalmar offers various empty container handling equipment. There are different units in order to meet lifting height requirements and, client's performance. Their range stretches from a capacity of 3 high up to 8+1 high, providing optimum balance of economy.
The containers need to be stacked and moved quickly, efficiently and safely, in order for money to be made and the job to be done. Other than driving fast and safe, the stacking needs to be done independent of lifting height. In general, it is a time-consuming job which needs precise positioning.
The equipment are under such a rigorous 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 those working in the vicinity.
The main characteristics for single stacking machines are their high lifting speeds, overall stability and extreme flexibility. The single handling concept starts at 3 high and stacking up to 8 high. These machines feature twistlock attachments that are a common item on many Kalmar machines throughout the world. Some of the key factors to take into account when choosing single stacking equipment are the high demands on selectivity and the limitations in ground space.
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 may present an extremely demanding application. Kalmar provides the new DCE100 unit that was particularly made to perform the high stability requirements of stability and strength with margin. Stacking 2 containers at the same time is the optimum operational efficiency that tops selectivity demands.
In order to meet a huge variety of applications, Kalmar has researched, engineered and designed many units of lift truck trucks.
