The intermodal handling machine engineered and designed by Cargotec is commonly used all over the world. By definition, an intermodal terminal refers to a link between seaport and railway or between road and railway. The company Cargotech provides innovative solutions, whether there is a need for equipment to handle swap bodies, containers or trailers.
Reach stackers are amongst the most popular machinery utilized in intermodal operations because they offer great flexibility and speed. One or two rail tracks are capable of being accessed from the side. Moreover, lift trucks that have extended gantry spreaders could be utilized for accessing the first rail.
RTG cranes are great for work on handling containers, trailers, and on railcars. This machinery could approximately 4 trail tracks simultaneously. Additionally, containers can be stored at the side of the rail tracks. If lots of railcars are handled systematically, RTG cranes are really effective.
RMG cranes are usually utilized in huge rail operations chosen because several tracks could be simultaneously covered. Road traffic has the option of being separated easily using cantilevered RMG cranes for more efficiency.
Straddle carriers are able to be used on railcars when handling containers. In order for this operation to be a success, an on-dock rail yard must be situated in close proximity to the main container yard so that things could remain economical.
Handling containers by utilizing reach stackers is amongst the best and most flexible solutions for multi-purpose terminals and small and medium sized ports. Reach stacker technology which offers excellent performance benefits whilst lessening overall lifecycle expenses is the most excellent kind of investment.
The Cargotec Kalmar DRF models are some of the best reach stackers ever made. They are known for their remarkable performance known throughout the industry. They have a computer control system which lessens fuel consumption and helps prevent engine and gearbox damage. These units provide smooth drive controls and automatic gear shift, as well as low emission levels. They are available in a variety of options and different units. Combinations consist of top-lift and combi-lift configurations.
