Telescopic Fork Stackers Boost Warehouse Capacity with Double-Deep Storage
By adopting a double-deep storage strategy, warehouses can achieve up to a 30% increase in storage capacity. This efficiency comes from reducing the number of required aisles by half, as the stackers’ telescopic forks can easily reach into the racks to stack and retrieve pallets from two depths. This approach not only maximizes the use of available space but does so in a remarkably cost-effective manner.
One of the standout features of these new stackers is their ability to make full use of vertical space. With a range of triplex mast options, warehouses can customize the stackers’ reach to perfectly suit their specific needs, with standard maximum heights ranging from 4.8 to 6.3 meters. Additionally, the enhanced load duration performance of these models allows for the storage of heavier loads at higher levels.
Innovative Design for Enhanced Efficiency
Another key advantage is the stackers’ wide straddle design, which facilitates handling closed-base pallets and other load carriers that lack open fork spaces. This design allows goods to be stacked directly on the floor, minimizing wasted space underneath the lowest racking beam. The width between the support legs can be adjusted to fit the specific requirements of each warehouse, ensuring optimal compatibility with various racking layouts and operations.
Speed and precision define the operation of the telescopic fork attachment. Its speed-regulated control allows for minor adjustments and rapid movements, ensuring safe and efficient operation. The design of the support legs enhances drive-in and ground clearance capabilities, while the fork tips are shaped for easy pallet entry and exit, even during turns.
Versatile Applications and Advanced Engineering
The hydraulic system of these stackers is engineered for seamless control over lifting and lowering actions, contributing to significant time savings in repetitive warehouse tasks. Moreover, the versatility of these stackers is highlighted by their potential for various applications beyond double-deep storage, such as reach trucks, pallet trucks, order pickers, and more, thanks to a wide range of optional features that enhance their adaptability.
The new Cat stackers embody the latest advancements in Cat stacker engineering, offering compactness, maneuverability, and efficiency. These models are designed to streamline warehouse operations, allowing for narrower aisles and smoother, faster actions across all tasks.
The new Cat stackers represent a significant advancement for warehouse operators and forklift buyers looking for a solution to increase their storage density and productivity.
