Egemin Automation is going to this year’s CeMAT trade show with the slogan “Smart, connected, global – Intralogistics 4.0”. The slogan holds a clear offering to the market. Egemin delivers intelligent and integrated automated material handling solutions that interconnect logistics, production and distribution processes of globally active customers.

From Egemin locations in eight countries supported by the worldwide service network of the KION Group and Egemin’s many years of experience in concept development and material handling automation, Egemin customers receive the exact solution they require to optimise their intralogistics process.

Egemin’s expertise in developing turnkey solutions for customers will be in the spotlight at CeMAT. One of the spotlights is Egemin’s newest AGV model (automated guided vehicles), the E’gv® Compact Counterbalance Forklift. The seamless integration of AGVs with automated material handling and warehousing systems in production and distribution offers smart solutions that make complex material flows and operations manageable.

As the KION Group’s seventh brand company, Egemin Automation is focusing on KION’s automation business. “At CeMAT, we will also highlight the successful cooperation with the other brands in the KION Group”, explains Michaël Coryn, Marketing Communications Manager at Egemin Automation.

“We will demonstrate for example how premium warehouse trucks and intralogistics services from STILL can be integrated in our turnkey solutions. We add the required intelligence to material handling systems and warehouse trucks enabling them to perform the tasks assigned to them accurately. With turnkey material handling solutions and concepts, as well as our many years of experience on the international market, we’re helping companies on the path towards connected processes and intralogistics 4.0.”

Since the launch of model series T20/T25 SP in 2004, Linde Material Handling has sold over 33,000 such pallet trucks worldwide. Linde says that this makes them the clear market leader in the platform pallet truck segment in Europe and also sets a benchmark in the field of intralogistics. Linde will be presenting a number of new, customer-oriented optional features for these successful models at its World of Material Handling (WoMH) 2016 customer event.

Around the world, these platform pallet trucks with two or two-and-a-half tonne load capacity facilitate the loading and unloading of HGVs as well as pallet transfer and order picking. Linde’s unique driving concept is key to the resounding market success: The main load of the transported goods rests on the drive wheel so that braking and acceleration forces are accurately transmitted. In addition, a hydraulic damping system with tilt sensors for the lateral support wheels ensures maximum stability and driver comfort in all situations. Whether cornering, on uneven surfaces or on slopes – the operator has full control of the vehicle and the load at all times.

The new equipment options enhance driver comfort, efficiency and reliability for Linde T20/T25 SP platform trucks even more. The main innovation is the completely decoupled and damped stand-on platform. Platform and steering system form a compact unit, which is decoupled from the chassis. This has led to about 30 percent reduction in jolts and vibrations – both mechanical and human.

With this innovation, Linde takes another step towards the ergonomic unity of man and machine. This is because platform pallet trucks Linde T20/T25 SP feature proven e-Driver technology. This allows the driver to comfortably rest his back by leaning, while standing at a 45 degree angle to the direction of travel and steer the vehicle with one hand, with which he can also control all drive and lift functions. The 45-degree position provides optimum visibility of the route and load in an ergonomic body posture. In this way the driver can concentrate for a long time without getting tired and he is positioned in such a way that his health is not compromised.

LED work lights increase safety

To facilitate working in poorly lit environments, Linde has added LED work lights to its range of optional features. These lights help to make processes safer and more efficient, for example when loading and unloading truck trailers with dark interiors. The light is positioned within the vehicle contour, protected against damage, and can be switched on and off with a single move of the hand.

In addition to process safety and driver comfort, customers particularly appreciate the high uptime and power of the platform pallet trucks. Both are assured by the truck’s 3 kW AC traction motor. Its high torque ensures powerful start up. After less than five metres, the vehicle reaches its maximum speed of 12 km/h. The trucks and their new optional features will make their debut at Linde’s WoMH in Offenbach, Germany which will take place from 9-25 May. Visitors to this customer event will be offered the opportunity to test-drive the vehicles themselves.

The 2015 fiscal year was a special one for industrial truck manufacturer, Linde Material Handling: for the first time in corporate history, customers ordered more than 100,000 forklift and warehouse trucks within one year. Shortly before year-end, it was leading manufacturer of wood-based panels and wood materials, Kronospan, who broke through the six-digit barrier with an order for three electric Linde E80/900 forklifts.

“We are very proud of this extraordinary sales result,” expounded a delighted Massimiliano Sammartano, Vice President of Sales & Service Marketing & Operations at Linde, a couple of days after the publication of the KION Annual Report 2015. “We see this record as appreciation by our customers for our ongoing commitment to offer them the best possible support with their materials handling tasks by providing just the right products, services and software solutions.”

The three new heavy electric forklift trucks in Kronospan’s fleet are destined for the company’s locations Burgos and Salas de los Infantes in northern Spain. There the Austrian company, a family-owned business with 14,000 employees worldwide and about 40 locations around the globe, operates a production line for melamine-faced panels. A total of 15 industrial trucks with load capacities of between 2.5 and 12 tonnes are used to transport wood fibre packages up to six metres long and 2.5 metres wide in-between the production area, drying chamber, rack warehouse and shipping area with truck loading bay. “We chose electric forklifts for the first time because they are clean and quiet in operation, whilst offering almost the same performance capacity as diesel trucks,” says Carlos Navarro, Sales Manager at Kronospan. The trucks’ product features convinced Kronospan to choose Linde. “We trust in the safety, reliability, efficiency and productivity offered by the Linde brand and we certainly appreciate the company’s high standard of service.”
