A detailed analysis of the entire order picking process by Crown researchers and engineers has led to the creation of the new GPC 3000 Series. The experts discovered that up to 90 percent of the tasks (walking, picking, loading, labelling, counting, wrapping) during a typical picking cycle are performed off the truck. Crown has focused on adding or improving a significant number of features, which reduce and simplify the operator’s movement while performing ‘off-truck’ tasks. The aim is for 100% efficiency during all picking tasks. read more »»
The handle is the key part of a pallet truck which helps the operator to work with the truck safely and productively. For this reason, Crown has developed the ergonomic and innovative X10® handle and has included it on all of its pallet truck and powered stacker series. A decisive advantage is the centre-mounted tiller and handle.
This guarantees excellent fork tip visibility from the normal driving position and also optimal visibility on both sides of the truck. The load can be placed more quickly and operating errors or damage to the goods reduced. Furthermore, the operator is always the same distance from the power unit with the centre-mounted handle during both right and left hand turns. The result: The risk of accidents is minimised and the productivity of the operator is maximised. read more »»
