Read below and consider how the new EKX Cold Store could revitalise your warehouse and give you an instant competitive advantage compared to competitor products or different truck types.
The EKX Cold Store Stacker is ideally suited to the following warehouse environments:
Very Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking.
Available in a range of designs and configurations, the very narrow aisles of multi-bay racking systems allow the EKX Cold Store to stack and retrieve pallets in a first in first out principle.
Powered Mobile Racking.
Driven by motor technology, aisles are created only where access to the particular pallets are required, thus making the most out of available floor space.
Under Pallet Carrier UPC Racking.
Shuttles travelling independently in the racking channel allow you to enhance the performance range of traditional compact warehouse systems. A high degree of space utilisation is of particular importance for the efficient operation of a Cold Store. The UPC Cold Store version operates in temperatures as low as –28°C in conjunction with the EKX Cold Store.
Push Back Racking.
Push back racking is achieved through trolley cars or inclined rollers to provide high density storage.
Compared to Reach Trucks, EKX High Rack Stackers have many advantages. EKX trucks can not only operate in much narrower spaces or aisles but they can stack and pick at extreme heights in restricted aisle spaces enabling for an increase in storage capacity. Diagonal travel is possible with the EKX making it extremely flexible and manoeuvrable. For example a load can be moved at the same time as being lifted, making it’s path diagonal and thus reaching it’s destination in a shorter space of time, at high speed.
Advantages of EKX over Reach Truck summarised:
The new EKX Cold Store stacker will take your warehouse operation to a new level when paired with our optional warehouse navigation technology. This specially engineered version of our tried-and-tested EKX model retains the trademark efficiency and power, but also delivers the added benefit of sub-zero temperature protection when operating in cold storage facilities. Once integrated with our RFID transponder technology, the EKX Cold Store helps you navigate your storage facility with incredible efficiency, directing the stacker to individual pallet locations with pinpoint accuracy. The management system relays all transport and picking orders directly to the truck terminal via radio data. This allows the truck to identify new target locations based on X, Y and Z coordinates and then helps it navigate to the new rack locations semi-automatically. Once the driver confirms the operation, the cabin’s display indicates travel and lift directions as the truck approaches the correct position automatically, with millimetre precision.
