Kalmar has been designing machinery which is particularly utilized in the handling of empty containers for numerous years. Their empty container handlers are now operating and functioning all over the world. Kalmar offers various empty container handling machines. There are a variety of units in order to meet customer's performance, and lifting height requirements. Their range stretches from a capacity of 3 high up to 8+1 high, offering optimum balance of economy.
In order for money to be made and a job to be done successfully, the containers need to be stacked and moved quickly, efficiently and safely. Aside from driving safe and fast, the stacking needs to be done independent of lifting height. In general, it is a time-consuming task which requires accurate placement.
These machinery are normally placed in harsh working conditions with heavy loads and demands being placed on the stability of the mast and the spreader, as well as strain on the abilities in the handling process. Having an unobstructed field of vision also helps to guarantee extra safety for the operator and individuals working nearby.
For single stacking machinery, the main characteristics consist of their high lifting speeds, overall stability and extreme flexibility. The single handling concept starts at 3 high and stacking up to 8 high. These machinery feature twistlock attachments which are a common item on numerous Kalmar machinery throughout the globe. Several of the key factors to consider when thinking about single stacking equipment are the limitations in ground space and the high demands on selectivity.
Double stacking the containers is another vital step in increasing the productivity in the empty container handling operations. For an empty container handler, the double stacking situation could present a really demanding application. Kalmar provides the new DCE100 unit which was specially made to perform the high stability requirements of stability and strength with margin. Stacking 2 containers at the same time is the optimum operational efficiency which tops selectivity demands.
Kalmar has researched, engineered and designed numerous models of forklift trucks to be able to meet a huge variety of applications.
