New Models and Applications for Crown’s Remote Order-Picker
15th August 2017
Crown has extended its well-established, multi-award-winning QuickPick® Remote order-picking technology to cover a broader range of applications. From now on, the system is also available for the lifting fork- and scissor-lift models in the GPC 3000 Series, the multi-purpose lift trucks in the MPC 3000 Series, and the TC 3000 Series of tow tractors.
Less walking, less bending, less lifting, say Crown – QuickPick Remote, in their view, combines technology, workflow efficiency and human activity in a natural, systematic process. Using a special working glove with integrated remote control, operators can move their trucks from one picking location to another without constantly climbing on and off the driver’s platform. Alternatively, customers can choose a transceiver strap or trigger instead of the glove. In practice, this proven concept increases productivity by enabling operators to do more while moving less – without compromising safety.
New areas of application for Crown’s tried and trusted QuickPick Remote technology include:
• GPC order pickers with fork or scissor lifts can be used to raise picking pallets to various optimal working heights. The variant with lifting forks can lift a pallet weighing up to 1,200 kg to a height of 960 mm, while the rugged scissor-lift model is capable of simultaneously lifting two pallets weighing 1,000 kg each to a height of 850 mm. This optimised positioning offers clear benefits in terms of ergonomics and productivity, reducing the risk of damage to products and enabling consistently high picking performance that can now be further enhanced by taking advantage of QuickPick Remote technology.
• The Crown MPC 3000 Series combines the advantages of an order picker with the capabilities of a counterbalanced forklift truck. With travel speeds of up to 12.5 km/h, a lifting capacity of up to 1,200 kg and lifting heights of up to 4.3 metres, these trucks are flexible enough to be used in a wide variety of warehouse applications, including order picking, put-aways and replenishment, long-distance transport and sandwich stacking. When used for order picking, they are versatile enough for operators to be able to replenish empty pick slots without changing to another vehicle.
• Tow tractors in Crown’s TC 3000 Series are the perfect solution for high-pressure transport and supply activities in production environments, warehouses and distribution hubs. Combined with QuickPick Remote, they can save significant time in order picking or production supply logistics while helping operators to stay relaxed and alert.
