Kalmar has been designing equipment that is specifically utilized 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 machines. There are various models 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, offering optimum balance of economy.
The containers have to be moved and stacked fast, efficiently and safely, in order for money to be earned and the task to be completed. Other than driving fast and safe, the stacking has to be done independent of lifting height. In general, it is a time-consuming job which needs precise positioning.
These machinery are usually placed in tough working conditions with heavy demands and loads being placed on the stability of the spreader and the mast, in addition to strain on the abilities throughout the handling process. Having an unobstructed field of vision also helps to guarantee extra safety for the operator and individuals working in the vicinity.
The main characteristics for single stacking machinery are their high lifting speeds, extreme flexibility and overall stability. The single handling concept starts at 3 high and stacking up to 8 high. These machinery feature twistlock attachments which are a common item on numerous Kalmar machinery throughout the globe. Some of the key factors to take into consideration when choosing single stacking machines are the high demands on selectivity and the limitations in ground space.
An important step in increasing the productivity in the empty container handling business comes from double stacking of containers. The double stacking situation could be a very demanding application for the Empty Container Handler. Kalmar provides the new DCE100 unit 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.
Kalmar has researched, designed and engineered many models of forklift trucks in order to meet a huge variety of applications.
