04 The slim steering

04 The slim steering column (with the travel direction lever on its left side) is infinitely variable 05 The grey switch activates the electrical wheel stop of the maintenance-free brake system 06 The engine compartment, which houses the economical drive, can be easily reached without using any tools er can be opened up wide and the two side elements can be removed without tools. The bottom plate can also be removed in a few seconds simply by releasing the accelerator plug. Both the diesel and the fuel gas variant come with a tried and tested Kubota engine. It is quite striking how quietly and smoothly the drive works. A decisive feature of this universal industrial motor concept is the worldwide availability of replacement parts. The enclosed cooling system and high degree of oil filtration ensure a high level of availability, even under harsh conditions. Performance profile Our test truck was stable and sturdy in operation, lending it a predictable quality. The truck owes its sturdiness in part to the premium Xtreme solid rubber tyres from Solideal, which give the truck a high degree of stability, but also produce a light rattle when driving with unladen fork on pavement or uneven terrain.

INDUSTRIAL TRUCKS Jungheinrich TFG 425 Pallets handled in 8 hours Average value of all 2.5 t LPG fork lift trucks we tested 339 334 Conclusion The TFG 425 is truly a truck for the world market: Uncomplicated and rugged with the qualities you can expect from the Jungheinrich brand. This truck is maintenance-friendly and features above-average performance. Potential improvements: a paper compartment, possibly mast cushioning at floor level and at maximum lift and a handgrip on the inside of the far rear roof pillar. We would also like to see the exhaust pipe moved to the left side of the counterweight to provide better visibility while reversing. Of course this criticism does not apply to the standard version with the exhaust pipe mounted under the counterweight.

Product News Bitobox EQ: Space-saving, ergonomic – or simply just very practical indeed Whether for industry or commerce– with their Bitobox EQ the company Bito has launched an ergonomic folding container onto the market, suitable for many jobs in different lines of business. When it is empty the robust load carrier can be folded together and thus it reduces its volume by 75 per cent. According to use the manufacturer fits the container with reinforced ribbed or double bottoms. In this way the load carrier can also be used in automated storage facilities. The new Bitobox is available in the basic size of 600 × 400 mm (23.6 × 15.7 inches) and comes either 285 or 320 mm (11.22 or 12.6 inches) in height. Both types can accept contents of up to 20 kg (44 lb.), when fitted with a double bottom of up to 50 kg (110 lb.). It can support a superimposed load of up to 180 kg (396 lb.). Flexco FMS secondary belt cleaners provide high power cleaning on conveyor belts The blades on the FMS secondary wipers are made of corrosion-resistant carbide metal. In this way Flexco wipers are suitable for belt speeds of up to 5 m/s (16.3 feet/sec) – and therefore for medium applications. A self-adjusting spring-loaded device as well as the use of vibration dampers press each individual blade onto the band and create a constant permanent pressure. The hard, thin edges of the metal cleaning sheets also contribute to thorough fine cleaning. The secondary cleaner blades are available for standard belt widths of 450 to 1,800 mm (17.7 to 70.9 inches). Further sizes are available on request. The cleaner blades can be used in a temperature range of between -35 and 82 °C (-31 and 180 ° Fahrenheit). Habasit introduces belt solutions for the baking industry The company Habasit AG supplies a large range of belt solutions which are tailored to the exact requirements of the baking industry. The company distinguishes itself with its wide pallet of textile based belts, modular plastic belts, plastic chains and toothed belts. The Habasit Cleanline is an established series of polyolefin coated belts, which make increased efficiency and greater cost savings possible. The low surface tension of the top coating supports the easy removal of even the stickiest goods such as freshly made dough or puff pastry. In specific baking processes Habasit Cleanline has been proven to achieve a reduction in waste of up to 80 per cent as well as significant improvements in hygiene. Demag V-type crane wins German Design Award 2016 An international panel of experts from the industry, science and design sectors have awarded the German Design Award 2016 for the Demag V-type crane. The panel referred to its eco-friendly V-type design, which demonstrates “just how functional design can be and the extent to which design applies,” in its statement on the award. This marks the crane’s fourth leading international design prize since it was launched at the end of 2014. The German Design Award is given every year by the German Design Council, which is a foundation that was initiated by the German Federal Parliament. The panel awarded the title of Winner to 10 products in its Industry category. The German Design Award is one of the best-known design competitions in the world and is held in high regard well beyond professional circles. Reachstacker LRS 545: The link between the quayside and the storage area The Reachstacker LRS 545 from Liebherr Maritime Crane Division stacks up to five containers in the first row and can support up to 45 tons (49.12 US tons). In the second row the load-bearing capacity with the same lifting height comes to 31 tons (34.17 US tons). The Reachstacker is equipped with a 230 kW four cylinder diesel engine developed by Liebherr themselves, which corresponds to the European Community EU Emissions Standards level IV / EPA Tier 4 final. The LRS 545 can also be fitted optionally with a hybrid Pactronic drive system. An additional energy storage device is charged with this system when lowering the load. The energy stored in this way delivers an additional performance of 110 kW. f+h Intralogistics 1/2016
