Trucks tailored to the application / 10 percent higher performance at 14 percent lower energy consumption / Easy order picking even at second racking level / Integrated Day LED driving light
Following the successful market launch of its horizontal order picker ECE 225 at LogiMAT 2015, Jungheinrich is unveiling further models to be launched successively over the coming months, starting with the ECE 225 HP (hydraulic lifting platform) and the ECE 225 HP-LJ (hydraulic lifting platform with control unit) variations.
All variations are based on the ECE 225 model, which was recently newly developed as a platform concept with completely overhauled drive and control technology. The models feature substantially enhanced acceleration and driving performance, resulting in up to 10 percent higher turnover compared with the previous series. “Initial measurements in the field revealed that energy consumption has simultaneously gone down by as much as 14 percent,” explains Ullrich Mau-Hansen, Product Manager for Order Pickers at Jungheinrich.
The standard version of the truck also has a patented new, cushioned stand-on platform which can be individually set to the driver’s weight, thus contributing to a significant reduction in human vibrations. Generous space, even for tall drivers, along with a variety of individually adjustable stowing options add up to features “that not only speak for the important role played by ergonomics right at the new vehicle development stage at Jungheinrich; they rather embody the state of the art in intralogistics!” continues Mau-Hansen.
The main feature of the new trucks however consists of their optimal adjustability to customer-specific application requirements. “In introducing the first new version of our ECE series we are setting standards once again in this vehicle class,” reports Mau-Hansen. “Users in this vehicle segment have widely varying logistics concepts, with consequently very high expectations in terms of performance, energy efficiency, ruggedness and ergonomics. These new models provide the market with vehicles that are even more tailored to their specific needs,” he concludes.
New Models: Comfortable Order Picking Even at Second Racking Level
The new horizontal order picker models consist of the ECE 225 HP (hydraulic lifting platform) and the ECE 225 HP-LJ (hydraulic lifting platform with control unit). These order pickers can transport payloads of up to 2,500 kilograms. Both trucks are fitted with a stand-on platform and are especially designed for frequent order picking at the second racking level. Whereas the ECE 225 HP lifts just the hydraulic lifting stand-on platform to the second racking level – the operator simply activates a foot button on the platform, leaving his hands free for order picking – the ECE 225 HP-LJ allows him to raise both the stand-on platform and the control unit to the second racking level. “This makes it possible for the operator to drive the vehicle even when the platform is raised,” states Mau-Hansen.
A new feature of both model versions consists of an optional integrated Day LED driving light which, according to Mau-Hansen, “increases the passive safety factor considerably, and is particularly useful for dimly lit parts of the warehouse.” Further available options for the new model versions include assistance systems like Curve Control, which automatically reduces the speed when cornering dependent on the payload, as well as three different driving programmes to guarantee the ideal vehicle adjustment to various different application profiles. All vehicle versions can furthermore be equipped with a series of optional packages, for example Drive & Eco Plus, providing for enhanced performance at the same high level of energy efficiency.
