Changes within society signify new challenges to the material-handling business. KION identifies six current trends to which it is responding with innovative products.
Environmentally Friendly Vehicles
Demand for environmentally friendly trucks continues to rise. In the future, engine particle emissions must be a fraction of what they were in 1999.
Hybrid forklifts recuperate braking energy. High-performance lithium-ion batteries present new chances for electric forklifts, while trucks with fuel cells and hydrogen engines are making inroads.
A panorama roof and an automatic parking brake are just two ways of increasing the safety of forklifts.
Demand for customized forklifts is rising rapidly. The demand for customized options has doubled to 30 percent since 1995, and continues to rise.
Truck Data Management allows customers to retain a constant overview of their fleet. For example, trucks transmit data that indicates when servicing is scheduled.
Automation relieves customers of a lot of work. Automated tugger trains, for example, bring materials directly to where they are needed.
To reduce the risk of accidents, Linde Material Handling offers customers a rear-area monitoring system as an optional extra.
Tugger trains can be maneuvered precisely – a key benefit when operating in narrow aisles.
