Recognized for manufacturing and design of innovative warehouse products, Jungheinrich® today announced that the ETV 110/112 moving mast reach truck series was named as a 2015 Plant Engineering Product of the Year in the material handling systems category. Equipped with 2,200-2,600 lb. lifting capacities, these reach trucks are used in warehouse applications to move a wide range of materials, such as building materials, garden supplies, food and kindred products and miscellaneous goods.
“We’re honored to have the Jungheinrich ETV 110/112 moving mast reach trucks named as a ‘Product of the Year’ by Plant Engineering Magazine,” said Perry Ardito, general manager of warehouse products at Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA), the provider of Jungheinrich warehouse products in North America. “The ETV 1 series utilizes Jungheinrich’s 4th generation AC electric control system and Jungheinrich drive and lift motors for greater operational efficiency. The ETV 1 series is proven to run longer – up to two shifts on one battery charge – allowing customers to achieve more without stopping to recharge the battery.”
The ETV 110/112 moving mast reach trucks also have several optional features to help improve productivity, including Fork Position Control, which allows an operator to automatically position the forks at the desired lift height for improved accuracy and productivity. The result is faster load placement or retrieval, which boosts overall warehouse productivity.
