Irish specialist handling manufacturer Combilift exports to 85 countries around the world, but its biggest single market is the UK, so it will naturally be putting on an impressive show at its upcoming "home event" IMHX at the end of September. Around fifteen exhibits spread over four stands will enable visitors to see the breadth of handling solutions now available from this company which is widely acknowledged as the innovative force in the industry. Managing Director and CEO Martin McVicar comments: "We have an even larger stand space than in 2016 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!"

Some of the company's larger products such as the Combi-SC Straddle Carrier will be on show in the outdoor area, and the stands just inside the entrance to Hall 18 will feature a mix of models including the multidirectional forklifts with which Combilift first came to prominence. And a special highlight will be the UK show debuts of two new products: the Combi-PPT powered pallet truck and the Combi-CSS Container Slip-Sheet. The Combi-CSS was designed for quicker and easier mechanised loading of long products into containers. It is a 30,000 kg capacity low free-standing platform with a dual-directional patented hydraulic driven pulling mechanism, on which a steel sheet rests. A full load can be prepared on the sheet which is then guided into the container and a 20' 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.

The Combi-PPT, which won the Safety Category of the FLTA Awards for Excellence 2019, is a high performance pedestrian operated powered pallet truck, with capacities from 3,000kg up to 16,000kg. It enables very large and bulky products to be manoeuvred with ease in confined spaces, ensuring maximum safety when working in areas where other personnel are present, in production plants for example. It features Combilift's unique, 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.
