Visitors experience ‘This is Yale’ at LogiMAT 2019

Following the success of the exclusive September event showcasing the company’s wide range of industry expertise, Yale Europe Materials Handling brought a taste of ‘This is Yale’ to the renowned trade fair, LogiMAT.

Taking place at the international hub of Stuttgart Messe, LogiMAT was once again an unmissable event and one Yale was proud to attend. Elements from the company’s solutions showcase event, ‘This is Yale’, were carefully handpicked for the exhibition, demonstrating its extensive experience in specific industry applications.

“This is Yale was a superb demonstration of how vast and versatile Yale® industry solutions can be, so we were delighted that we were able to bring a small taste of this to LogiMAT,” said Iain Friar, Yale Brand Marketing Manager.

Guiding the future

After its successful debut in September, Yale brought the MC15 robotic counterbalance stacker to LogiMAT.

Just like the full Yale robotics range, the MC15 counterbalance stacker is driven by industry-leading Balyo geoguidance navigation technology.

Unlike traditional automated guided vehicles, which rely on a dedicated physical infrastructure, Yale robotic models self-locate and navigate in real time. There’s no need to bury wires in the floor or mount reflectors on walls, which reduces the cost of installation and virtually eliminates ongoing structural maintenance. The solution is fully connected to the customer environment and can be integrated into current processes quickly and easily.

Yale products take pride of place

The new MR Series tilting mast reach truck joined the Yale line-up.

Sharing many features with the award-winning MR Series range, the new MR10-14E trucks benefit from a tilting mast, making them particularly well-suited to light-duty and low-height applications as well as those where space is at a premium.

A specially configured Yale ERP30VL electric counterbalance forklift, featuring dual pedals for directional control and a double pallet handler, highlighted solutions for logistics applications. With its adjustable steering column, full suspension seat, ‘head up’ display to keep operators’ field of vision clear, and adjustable armrest with built-in hydraulic controls, operator comfort and efficiency are at the forefront of this truck.

The MS16S rider stacker was also at the exhibition. Designed for stacking and retrieving goods over short and long distances, visitors were able to appreciate the rider stacker’s excellent operator visibility and ergonomics.

New MSX Series platform stacker preview

The next generation MSX Series platform stacker was previewed for the first time at LogiMAT. The dualpurpose warehouse machine combines the manoeuvrability of a pedestrian stacker with the travel speed of a ride-on pallet truck. As well as competitive lift and lower speeds, the new stacker boasts a load capacity of up to 2000kg and a maximum lifting height of up to six metres.

Branching out

As well as Yale experts on hand to discuss application-specific solutions, representatives from the Yale dealer network were also present for all three days of LogiMAT.

A close partnership with knowledgeable and experienced dealers is key to the company’s success in the region with an extensive network of dealers offering local support. Yale dealers understand the pressure on businesses to respond quickly to peaks in demand or unexpected events and were available to discuss how Yale Short Term Rental options can help optimise fleets and boost materials handling capacity to keep operations running smoothly.
