Magline Launches New Product

Press release date: Apr 12, 2004

Magline, Inc., provider of Magliner route distribution solutions, announces the addition of a new material handling truck. The Axiom 360 is a narrow, lightweight aluminum truck that provides users 360 degree maneuverability and a 1,200 pound capacity. The truck has a 60- by 16-inch deck, removable 42-inch handle, and six non-marking casters.

The Axiom 360 is well-suited to a warehouse or manufacturing environment. Moving materials around a warehouse or plant can be a challenge. This product allows users to increase productivity by moving more materials in less time than a standard hand truck. "The ability to easily maneuver 1,200 pounds around a warehouse or plant turns four trips into one. This is a significant time savings," says Kari Michalski, Magline Product Development Manager.

Having a 1,200-pound capacity is one thing, being able to move those heavy loads is another. That's why the maneuverability and rollability of the Axiom 360 are so important. Six heavy-duty casters in an off-set design allow users to glide over thresholds, cracks, and bumps with little effort. The narrow design makes it easy to turn around tight places - nearly any space a standard hand truck fits.

The open deck has four longitudinal stringers strategically placed to handle most product sizes. Users transporting exceptionally small boxes may want to take advantage of the optional high-density polymer deck sheet. Also optional is a second handle for added load containment and control.

"Above all, the Axiom 360 is a Magliner so users know they are getting the high quality and durability they have come to expect over the years," says Michalski.

Founded in 1947, Magline, Inc. manufactures a complete line of lightweight route delivery systems and equipment for use in the soft drink, beer, bottled water, parcel, vending, food, and other distribution industries.
