Equipment ResourceSouthworth Brouchure Shows Practical Applications of Ergonomics This little booklet done in comic book style uses simple illustrations to take readers on a walk through a hypothetical, yet typical, plant where the plant manager, safety director, and controller point out a variety of problems that were solved through the practical application of ergonomics.
“We guarantee that our vehicles will run for 16 hours on a single battery on a single charge, or we will provide our customer with a second battery, free,” Ardito said, noting that regenerative braking and lifting/lowering functions contribute to the extended run time.
The company’s confidence is bolstered by energy-efficient motors and computerized controllers that optimize each vehicle’s productivity and yield an exceptionally long run time, added Sneddon. “We encourage customers to take our seven-day demo challenge to see the vehicles in use in their own facilities,” he said.
The guarantee covers a range of mid- to high-level orderpickers, pantograph reach trucks, three-wheel electric counterbalanced and electric pneumatic tire forklifts.
Additionally, Ardito showcased the company’s new EKS 314 high-level orderpicker, the fourth of five new models planned for release in 2017.
