Kalmar has launched its new drivetrain system into the Asia-Pacific region, the K-Motion solution, which will be featured in the programming of the company’s range of container lifts and reach stackers. The component is set to improve the efficiency and productivity of the equipment by boosting its uptime, ergonomy, and safety while also reducing the running costs of the machine.
“Kalmar K-Motion has been developed as a result of listening closely to the needs of our customers. The support and feedback we receive from our customers and dealers is a key input to our R&D process. K-Motion is a continuation of our commitment to offering innovative technologies and world-class solutions that help our customers achieve their operational and environmental goals,” said Executive Vice President, Kalmar Asia-Pacific, Ken Loh.
The innovative solution reestablishes Kalmar’s longstanding commitment to developing solutions that are geared towards helping each of their customers meet their sustainability targets and minimise the impact of their lift trucks on the environment. The K-motion smart control system also enhances precision in both low and high drive-speed modes by splitting the power to increase overall drive and lifting efficiency, while the improved joystick enables more precise driving. Thus, enhancing the Kalmar lift trucks’ overall performance and reliability on the job.
“Now more than ever, terminals are under pressure to increase their capacity, cut costs and reduce the environmental footprint of everyday operations. We at Kalmar have a long-term commitment to developing efficient and sustainable technology, and this includes the possible application of K-Motion technology across our entire range of reach stackers in the future,” added Stefan Johansson, Director, Sales and Marketing, Kalmar Reach stackers and Empty Container Handlers.
The technology is already available at Kalmar’s container lifts and reach stackers, and would be an integral part of the company’s developmental plans in the future as they strive to continuously provide the best innovations in the material handling industry.
