Remote lift technology
Published: 24 April, 2015
CROWN, one of the world’s largest material handling companies, reports it has extended its tried-and-tested QuickPick Remote technology with a variant that controls lift and lower functions. Available now for fitment to Crown’s ES 4000 and ET 4000 Series stackers, this version of the remote glove technology features a special transceiver for the stacker’s lift system.
The company says the new lift technology means operators can now raise and lower the truck’s forks without having to use its control handle. Consequently operators have both hands free and no longer have to walk as far, bend as often or lift as much – all of which help improve productivity by reducing physical strain and operator fatigue. The transceiver communicates with the truck via a receiver mounted on the mast.
