MCFA Introduces New Jungheinrich Walkie Stacker for North America
HOUSTON - Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. (MCFA) (http://www.mcfa.com), a leading provider of forklift trucks in the United States, Mexico, Canada and Latin America, announced today the addition of a new Jungheinrich® EJC B14/EJC B16 Heavy-Duty Electric Walkie Straddle Stacker to its North American product line. The new Walkie Stacker implements a highly efficient 3-phase AC technology drive system, proportional lift and lower control, optional electric power steering and a multifunction control tiller head.
Jungheinrich engineers focused on increasing energy efficiency and reducing life cycle costs with the new EJC series 3-phase AC technology drive system. Enhancements to the advanced drive system, including features such as proprietary software, enhanced electrical components and optimized cable routing, result in longer battery life and more run time. Further advantages include the elimination of wear items such as motor brushes and springs, which can lead to lower life cycle costs, and advanced regenerative braking, which allows energy to be fed back into the battery for longer run times and enhanced productivity.
The new EJC series also integrates quiet performance and premier handling, as precise speed and torque control allows for easy maneuvering even in confined warehouse applications. Extremely beneficial for a stacker, the series features variable lift/lower speed control which lowers pull-down and put-away costs while reducing the likelihood of lift truck, rack or product damage.
All forklift truck movement functions are accomplished via the tiller head as it allows for increased operational efficiencies and decreased operator fatigue. The tiller head is mounted low and toward the side of the truck. This maximizes the space between the operator and the chassis for increased comfort and visibility. The controls may be activated with either hand to further increase operational efficiency of the forklift.
The EJC B14 and EJC B16 also feature patented dual articulating load wheel design, a crawl speed button that allows travel with handle in the upright position, and a smart auto reversing switch. Optional features include adjustable baseleg widths, a cold store package for refrigeration and freezer applications and electric power steering, which minimizes the amount of effort required to turn the truck, reducing operator fatigue. With more than 300 dealer and service facilities throughout North America, Jungheinrich warehouse products are backed by a dealer network that is committed to providing industry-leading customer service and solutions for material handling needs.
