New products, live demos and entertainment
26 September 2019
Visitors to this year’s IMHX will be able to view a wide range of exhibits on four Combilift and Aisle Master stands.
Some of the company’s larger products such as the Combi-SC Straddle Carrier will be on show in the outdoor area, while the stands just inside the entrance to Hall 18 will feature a wide variety of customised, innovative handling solutions that are hallmarks of this Irish manufacturer.
Making its UK show debut at IMHX, the Combi-CSS Container Slip-Sheet provides mechanised loading of long products into containers. The 30,000kg capacity low free-standing platform has a dual-directional motor-driven pulling mechanism, on which rests a steel sheet.
A full load can be prepared on the sheet which is then guided into the container and a 20ft container can be loaded in just three minutes. When fully loaded, a hydraulic rear barrier gate swings across the container opening and is locked in place. This holds the material within the container while the metal sheet is slipped out from underneath it.
Also making its UK show debut, the Combi-PPT powered pallet truck won the Safety Category of the FLTA Awards for Excellence 2019. The pedestrian-operated truck has capacities from 3000 to 16,000kg and enables large and bulky products to be manoeuvred in confined spaces, ensuring maximum safety when working in areas where other personnel are present, in production plants for example.
It features Combilift’s patented multi-position tiller arm that is used in all the company’s pedestrian models. This incorporates tiller and operator offset position with the touch of a button, allowing for excellent visibility and reducing crush risk to the operator.
Other exhibits will include small pedestrian stacker trucks, variants of the original multidirectional C-Series, stand-on narrow aisle forklifts, heavy duty XL range, Combi-CB counterbalance design 4-way models and Aisle Master articulated forklifts. Stand 18L125.
Managing director and CEO, Martin McVicar, comments: “We have an even larger stand space than at the last event which allows us to showcase our ever growing range and we will be sticking to our very successful IMHX formula – a mix of new products, live demos and entertainment.” Stand 18L125
