The new DRG1000-92 ZXS reach stacker in Kalmar's Gloria range is the world's largest industrial reach stacker.
Kalmar has achieved a world record after its new Super Gloria reach stacker lifted a steel component weighing over 100 T in front of an invited audience on 12 September in Sweden.

The reach stacker completed the feat at Kalmar's multi-assembly unit in Lidhult, Sweden.

Stefan Johansson, director of sales and marketing, says: "Lidhult is the home of Kalmar reach stackers. This small village, deep in the forests of Småland in southern Sweden, serves as the product development centre for Kalmar mobile equipment. Given the local involvement in developing this world record-breaking machine, it is fitting that the team involved share in making a little history."

The new DRG1000-92 ZXS reach stacker in Kalmar's Gloria range is the world's largest industrial reach stacker. It boasts a completely new design, developed to meet customers' critical specifications with lift capacities up to 120 T, depending on the application.

The Super Gloria model has been augmented with a specially raised cab to enhance visibility and has a wheelbase of 9.25 m (30.4 ft.) to provide maximum stability.

Visitors to the event toured the factory, met the experts behind the machines and saw a parade of the latest Kalmar reach stackers, empty container handlers and forklifts.

Separately, Kalmar has received an order from Egon Evertz KG for the Super Gloria. The machine will be based at Salzgitter Flachstahl and used to handle hot and cold steel slabs.

Super Gloria will be handling new 50 T mega steel slabs, measuring 2.7 m (8.9 ft.) wide, 12 m (39.4 ft.) long and 350 mm (13.8 in.) thick. The machine is equipped with both an electric lift magnet for handling slabs in cold conditions and a hydraulic slab grab for hot conditions (up to 800 degrees Celsius).

The Evertz Group, a company based in Solingen, Germany, has specialised in serving steel mills worldwide for over 50 years. Kalmar's solution was devised to meet Egon Evertz's increasing requirement to handle heavier loads.
