Kombi Stacker EKX 514-516
Jungheinrich has announced the launch of a new narrow-aisle Kombi Stacker, the EKX 514-516 electric order picker and trilateral forklift. With a payload capacity of 1.6 T and a lift height of 18 m, the new model offers maximum versatility for order picking and stacking operations.

The truck is equipped with state-of-the-art control technology, completely new motor technology and an efficient energy management system.

The new Kombi Stacker eliminates the need for extra batteries on a two-shift operation and cuts down on requirements for charging stations and extra manpower.  This is due to new motor technology which combines the high performance and energy efficiency of a synchronous motor with the low maintenance and cost advantages of a three-phase AC motor.

The new motor technology converts around 93% of the energy consumed into actual output, cutting energy losses by half, according to Steve Richmond, director of Jungheinrich’s Systems & Projects Division.

The new model also features a patented vibration damping system. The optional Floor Pro module reduces lateral vibration of the mast and driver’s cab caused by uneven floors. "This system enables the user to travel more smoothly and up to 30% faster on substandard surfaces," says Richmond. "Narrow-aisle trucks can now work safely and efficiently on floors that were originally designed solely for reach trucks – even at lift heights of 10 metres."

Jungheinrich’s new Kombi Stacker EKX 514-516 will be unveiled at the LogiMAT 2016 exhibition in Stuttgart in March.
