Celebrating 15 years of lifting innovation, Combilift USA
 (Booth 1038) is highlighting five different multi-directional forklifts and sideloaders products at ProMat.

“We currently have more than 18,000 units operating worldwide, with over 4,000 units in North America,” said Gearoid Hogan, director of North American marketing. “We’re debuting two newly designed all-electric models at the show this year—the C11,000 GTE stand-up sideloader, and the multi-directional C8000ET forklift.”

The C11,000 GTE lifts loads up to 11,000 pounds using a 72-volt system with two AC-electric-driven wheels; for maneuverability, all four wheels steer the unit and traverse grades up to 10% at a maximum speed of 7 miles per hour, noted Hogan.

The new C8000ET uses an 80-volt system and two wheels to lift loads up to 8,000 pounds. The vehicle also comes in 6,000- and 10,000-pound capacity models.

Also on display are:
• The electric Combi-CB5000E, offered as an alternative to standard conventional counter-balance forklifts, reach trucks, side loaders, or electric 4-way forklifts;
• The Aisle-Master 33E VNA articulated electric forklift for aisles as narrow as 75 inches; and
• The C17300 LPG or diesel multi-directional forklift with capacities up to 17,300 pounds.

ProMat 2013 is scheduled to be held January 21-24, 2013 in Chicago’s McCormick Place South. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete ProMat 2013 coverage.

Supply chain visibility is the Holy Grail for warehouses and distribution centers where the fast and efficient movement of goods is the solution to satisfying customer demand. This is especially true for the 68% of companies which are not satisfied with material movement efficiency from source to destination. These companies are seeking new ways to get the right goods to the right place at the right time. They are finding that change, complexity, compliance, competition, and connectivity are leading to further confusion.

Instead of ignoring a forklift fleet and its associated costs, asking the right questions can lead to substantial savings.

This white paper outlines five ways to increase profits with automation. By implementing automated storage and retrieval equipment-such as horizontal carousels, vertical carousels and vertical lift modules, multiple areas of a manufacturing or distribution facility will benefit from savings in inventory accessibility, floor space, time, improved ergonomics and better accuracy.

Citing difficult winter weather, executives anticipate the release of pent-up demand.
