Kalmar has been developing equipment which is specifically adapted to the handling of empty containers for many years. Their empty container handlers are now functioning and operating all around the globe. Kalmar offers a huge variety of empty container handling equipment. There are a variety of units to be able 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.
In order for money to be made and a task to be completed successfully, the containers has to be stacked and moved quickly, safely and efficiently. Other than driving safe and fast, the stacking should be completed independent of lifting height. In general, it is a time-consuming job which needs accurate positioning.
These machines are usually placed in tough working conditions with heavy loads and demands being placed on the stability of the spreader and the mast, in combination with strain on the abilities during the handling process. Having a clear field of vision also helps to guarantee extra safety for the operator and individuals working nearby.
For single stacking machines, the main characteristics include their high lifting speeds, extreme flexibility and overall stability. The single handling concept starts at 3 high and stacking up to 8 high. These machines feature twistlock attachments which are a common item on many Kalmar machinery all over the world. Several of the important factors to consider when choosing single stacking equipment are the limitations in ground space and the high demands on selectivity.
An important step in increasing the production in the empty container handling business comes from double stacking of containers. The double stacking situation can be an extremely demanding application for the Empty Container Handler. Kalmar provides the new DCE100 unit which was specifically designed to fulfill the high stability requirements of strength and stability with margin. Stacking 2 containers simultaneously is the optimum operational efficiency that tops selectivity demands.
In order to meet a huge variety of applications, Kalmar has researched, designed and engineered many models of lift truck trucks.
