The new Noblelift lithium iron-phosphate LiFePO4/LFP electric EDGE Series full electric walkie straddle stackers are designed for productivity in high-density, high-throughput warehouses.
Available in 2,600 lb. (1,200 kg) load capacities and a lift height of up to 142 in. (3.6 m), the EDGE series lithium-iron straddle stackers deliver reduced energy consumption and faster cycle times to help warehouses move inventory efficiently while having a safer more stable thermal chemical compound of iron-phosphate to avoid overheating and/or explosion.

The stackers come with a smart handle with a PIN-code panel that limits access to approved personnel.
New app from Columbus McKinnon
Buffalo, NY, United States
Intelli-Connect Diagnostics and Analytics app
Columbus McKinnon has introduced the Intelli-Connect Diagnostics and Analytics app which provides crane and hoist users access to detailed system information on their tablet or smartphone.
With diagnostic information available at their fingertips, customers can address issues faster, reducing the mean time to recover, plan maintenance and ultimately increase uptime.
"This new remote diagnostic and analytic solution delivers critical status information from a Magnetek variable frequency drive on a crane or hoist to the Intelli-Connect Mobile App, providing insight into how equipment is being used to ensure proper and timely maintenance," says Peter Stipan, global director of Columbus McKinnon's Automation Division. "By accessing information directly on a tablet or smartphone, operators no longer need to climb up to the drive, power down, and connect hardware to access status information, thus eliminating potentially hazardous situations."
By incorporating this technology into an overhead crane or hoist, users can quickly and easily program, monitor and troubleshoot equipment.
The mobile app is available as a free download on Google Play or the Apple App Store.
