Stora Enso is ordering five more Kalmar DCE 80-9 HE forklifts with hydrostatic operations for its Hylte newsprint paper mill, bringing the total machines to six.

After six months of testing a Kalmar 8-tonne truck, which has an attached paper clamp, the paper producer decided the machine satisfied its paper handling requirements.

A Kalmar spokesman said Stora Enso was replacing its old Linde trucks with new Kalmar trucks.

"Linde is our biggest competitor and, in this case, we managed to convince the customer to use our machine, which, together with the attachment, has a load capacity of 6.5 tonnes," he said. He would not disclose the value of the order.

At the Hylte mill, the new forklifts will collect paper rolls that have travelled on conveyor belts from paper machines and take them for storage in paper warehouses.

The trucks are equipped with integrated functions. Clamp pressure is precision-adjusted so the paper roll cannot slide or get damaged. The rolls are deposited at exactly the right angle and the lowering speed is automatically controlled to gently set the rolls down, Kalmar said in a statement.

The trucks have newly developed twin pedals, which are an ergonomic improvement as they act as a foot support in a resting position.

The driving compartment can be rotated 180 degrees and provides optimum vision and comfort for the driver, Kalmar said.
