BT RAE160 reach forklift
Toyota Material Handling Australia (TMHA)  debuted its BT RAE160 reach forklift at the 2019 Auspack Packaging & Processing Machinery expo in Melbourne.

The autonomous (driverless) 1.6 T capacity reach forklift featuring a 10-metre mast was on display and in action at TMHA's stand.

The Toyota BT RAE160 reach forklift (also available in 2 T and 2.5 T capacity models) integrates with warehouse management systems to operate according to a customer's unique requirements. It uses a laser-based navigation system and complex range of sensors to safely and accurately handle materials automatically.

TMHA product manager - automation, Neil Beveridge, says TMHA had demonstrated automated guided vehicles (AGVs) at Auspack before, but never a piece of equipment so capable of large-scale warehousing duties.

"The RAE Autopilot series with vision-aided load-handling was specifically designed for large-scale warehouse logistics, pallet warehousing, production and manufacturing facilities."
