Customers and prospects are set to join official Yale® dealer Dynamo Group in Valencia on 22 and 23 November to experience the extensive materials handling capabilities of Yale first hand.
‘This is Yale-Valencia’ takes its inspiration from the two day ‘This is Yale’ event held by Yale Europe Materials Handling in Germany on 19 and 20 September. The event saw customers, prospects and dealers from across Europe, the Middle East and Africa travel to Düsseldorf to witness product launches and live demonstrations of the latest materials handling solutions.
Guests at This is Yale – Valencia will have the opportunity to view a range of solutions tailored to the automotive and logistics industries, including models from the recently launched Yale robotics range. Both the new MO70T robotic tow tractor and MC15 robotic counterbalance stacker featuring innovative Baylo geoguidance technology will be on display at the event. Suitable for towing several trailers at a time, the MO70T robotic tow tractor is ideally placed to support lineside production and logistics ‘milk run’ loops. The tow tractors can deliver new kits to line operators while collecting empty containers simultaneously, ensuring production lines are fed ‘just-in-time’and ‘just-in-sequence’ and helping businesses boost productivity without the need for any dedicated physical infrastructure required for navigation.
Particularly well suited to warehouse applications, the MC15 robotic counterbalance stacker is capable of both horizontal transport and vertical lifting. The truck’s ability to lift and lower loads means it can autonomously deposit and retrieve pallets from racking with ease. The truck can perform a wide variety of repetitive jobs including transferring pallets to conveyor lines, loading and unloading in cross-docking applications and stacking loads in elevated spaces, while its dual-mode design allows operators to regain control at the touch of a button, giving customers the flexibility to accommodate unexpected requirements without the need for separate equipment.
Visitors will also be able to see the MS Series pallet stacker and MR Series reach truck in action with a series of live demonstrations and explore a variety of power options for materials handling equipment.
“Environmental concerns mean alternative power has become a focus for operations that have historically relied on ICE trucks, while existing electric truck users are looking to extend shift lives, reduce battery changing times and optimise warehouse space by removing charging areas. Lead-acid batteries, Li-ion and hydrogen fuel cells will all be brought to life during the event,” said Jesús Ortega, Dynamo Group.
For Dynamo Group, the only Yale ‘Gold’ standard dealer in Spain, This is Yale - Valencia represents an opportunity to demonstrate their expertise and ability to support with the sale, rent, maintenance and repair of Yale equipment in the region. “Dynamo Group is committed to the Yale vision of delivering high quality products and outstanding customer satisfaction, while offering the lowest lifetime cost of ownership”, concludes Jesús.
