Linde introduces new reach trucks
The new Linde reach truck can cope with uneven or wet surfaces.
Linde Material Handling has launched its latest series of reach trucks for indoor and outdoor use.
Available in the 1.4 to 2 T load category, the Linde R14G-R20G trucks are equipped with large super-elastic tyres and can cope with uneven or wet surfaces. They are suited for the loading and unloading of trucks, and for use at ramps, high racks or in outdoor areas.
The new reach trucks have load wheels with diameters of up to 458 mm (18 in.) and mast ground clearance of 168 mm (6.6 in.). Equipped with a 6.5 kW drive motor, the reach trucks achieve maximum driving speeds of 14 km/h (87 mph).
The torsion-resistant tilting masts can be fitted with standard masts or triplex masts. Both versions offer the driver a wide view of the lift mast, which is up to 7,700 mm (25 ft.) high.Essensium launches SafeTrack
Essensium has introduced what it claims is the world's most advanced collision warning solution to prevent accidents in warehouses.
The product, SafeTrack, is claimed to offer a solution where alternative safety systems fail. As it is based on a global view of the site, it can "more accurately identify real and false alarm conditions" than systems based on proximity detection.
SafeTrack is based on "accurate 2D position information that is provided by ... EPS (Essensium Positioning Solution) technology". It consists of indoor reference nodes, indoor mobile nodes for both people and vehicles, and a new version of the location server with an anti-collision software development kit.Jungheinrich shows off at LAMMA

Jungheinrich UK Ltd displayed its new range of internal combustion engine counterbalance forklifts at LAMMA 2015 last week.

Jungheinrich says the new models were extensively tested at some of the most demanding sites around the world prior to their launch.
LAMMA, the UK's largest farm machinery, equipment and agricultural services show, was held on 21-22 January at the East of England showground in Peterborough.
