clogoCrown, one of the world’s largest material handling companies, will showcase a full line-up of products and forward-thinking technologies on stand 10J61 at IMHX 2016, being staged at the NEC Birmingham from 13th to 16th September 2016. 

In modern material handling, the constant need for improved productivity, connectivity and cost control leads to increased efforts to integrate modern technologies into logistics and warehousing processes. On Crown’s 440 square metres stand, visitors will get a deep insight into the company’s latest developments in terms of semi-automation, energy and fleet management technologies.

Quick Pick® Remote – Crown’s proven and award-winning Quick Pick® Remote Order Picking Technology improves workflow efficiency, whilst reducing time, effort and costs by enabling the truck to be advanced remotely to the next picking position. Introduced on Crown’s GPC 3000 order picker series at the end of 2013 and followed by its success at various European customer applications, the system is now available on all the company’s order pickers as well as its MPC multi-purpose lift trucks and TC tow tractors. Functionality has been further enhanced with the ability to remotely control lift/lower functions on nearly all Crown stacker models – all via the wrist-mounted “magic glove”.

Auto Fence and Auto Positioning Systems – Crown has raised the bar in semi-automation with its new RFID-based Auto Fence and Auto Positioning System technologies for its TSP Series turret trucks. Being launched on the UK market at IMHX 2016, the Auto Fence system controls truck operation near a hazard or where greater caution is required and the Auto Positioning System automates travel and lift functions for the most efficient path between the truck and its destinations.  

Li-Ion ready range extended – In addition to Crown’s 24-Volt trucks, Lithium-Ion ready variants are now available on 48-Volt machines, including the SC 6000 counterbalance and ESR 5200 reach truck series. 

The new Wave® – IMHX 2016 will see the UK debut of the new WAV 60 Work Assist® Vehicle from Crown. Designed to bring greater safety, efficiency and flexibility to applications where ladders are typically used to reach up to five metres, such as in retail and manufacturing, the applications for this versatile machine are virtually limitless. The new generation of the Crown Wave features powerful and reliable AC technology with travel speeds up to 8 km/h, as well as the comprehensive on-board Access 1 2 3 system for optimum performance and control.
