Methods to improve the performance of high-level stacking of reach forklifts

Date: 2022-08-23 View:

Forklifts need to stack high, especially when the height is greater than 8 meters, the most suitable is the use of reach forklifts. These types of forklifts are designed to accommodate narrow aisles and achieve high lift heights.
As you can imagine, placing or stacking pallets safely and smoothly at these heights is not an easy task, and much depends on the skill of the operator.
For this reason, in this article we share some solutions to help our reach trucks accomplish this task, maintaining a high level of safety and productivity throughout the shift.

(1) High load visibility
By getting a clear, unobstructed view throughout the process, you'll be able to maintain the highest level of safety for all operators in your workplace.
Seeing your load clearly also increases speed, which in turn increases productivity. A clear view of the perimeter and fork tips will minimize damage to cargo or racks, reducing costs. FLIFT reach trucks include masts for unobstructed visibility, and you can optionally configure the reach truck with a clear car.

(2) Forklift operator concentration
Doing high stacking work throughout a material handling shift can be exhausting. To keep the operator focused, generally forklift manufacturers have reach trucks equipped with tilting cabs. Not only do they optimize load visibility for faster handling, but they also improve driver position and ergonomics. Combined with a cab and controls designed around the operator, they can enjoy a comfortable driving position, which means less fatigue and stress and increased productivity after a long day at work.

(3) Options for higher precision
The better the visibility of the fork tip, the faster the load can be placed or picked up. This enables faster loading and unloading of goods and minimizes damage to merchandise or pallets, thereby minimizing operating costs. Our reach trucks are available in a variety of options to help pick or place loads faster and more efficiently, such as:
- Load weight indicator
-Altitude indicator
· Altitude preselector
Lift height limit
- Cameras on the gantry and/or forks
-Fork laser
- Counties such as sideshifters and fork positioners
- Automatic tilt and fork centering function
- State-of-the-art color display with operating information

(4) Maximize performance
Lifting loads and stacks at height takes time, which can be affected by mast swing or transitions between free lifts and main lifts. Reach trucks are designed to ensure high stability and performance while minimizing mast sway. Some big brands of reach trucks are parameterized for smooth, optimized movement based on lift height and load weight. Additionally, the Transition Lift Control (TLC) function allows a smooth transition between free lift and main lift, providing better ergonomics for the operator thanks to reduced shock and higher lift speeds to ensure greater stability and safer cargo handling.

(5) Automatic stacking
Why not consider an autonomous reach truck? Automating repetitive tasks in operations, such as the storage and retrieval of goods, provides a high level of safety and accuracy for lean storage. The range of automatic reach trucks equipped with scanners and remote viewing auxiliary loaders ensures high productivity and minimizes damage when handling and transporting loads.
