Crown QuickPick® Remote Lift Technology for stackers combines automation with ergonomic benefits

New applications for award-winning remote control system

Crown has extended its tried-and-tested QuickPick Remote technology with a variant that controls lift and lower functions. Available now for fitment to Crown’s ES 4000 and ET 4000 Series stackers, this version of the successful remote glove technology features a special transceiver for the stacker’s lift system.

The new lift technology means operators can now raise and lower the stackers’s forks without having to use its control handle. Consequently operators have both hands free and no longer have to walk as far, bend as often or lift as much – all of which help improve productivity by reducing physical strain and operator fatigue. The transceiver communicates with the stacker via a receiver mounted on the mast. A light indicates system status (raising or lowering). By pressing the button, operators can position the forks at an ergonomic working height of up to 1.8 metres, making it easier to transfer objects between pallets and shelving. But in addition to filling shelves, remote adjustment of the height of the forks can also provide an ergonomic aid for setting up production machinery or carrying out a range of workshop or assembly activities.

Switching the QuickPick Remote lift function from raise to lower is effortless, while the function is automatically deactivated as soon as operators activate the control handle or climb onto the driver platform – and they can continue to operate the stacker in the conventional way, regardless of whether or not they are using the glove.

“With QuickPick Remote Lift Technology, Crown has developed yet another highly ergonomic solution that improves safety and efficiency while also offering specific benefits and genuine added value in a wide variety of applications,” says Ken Dufford, Vice President Europe at Crown.

Crown’s QuickPick Remote technology entered the low-level order picking market in 2014. It has already been honoured with five prestigious awards, including the IFOY Award (International Forklift Truck of the Year), iF Design Award and German Design Award. Industry users and observers regularly describe the remote control system as genuinely innovative as well as exceptionally efficient.
