Still Material Handling has launched the EK-X, a vertical order picker.
According to Still, order pickers are crucial for collecting individual items and placing them on pallets ready for shipping.
The EK-X replaces the EK-10 and comes with an OPTISPEED control system designed to offer safe manoeuvring at all lift heights up to a maximum picking height of 6.35 metres. The programme is used to automatically control the speed depending on the actual lift height. Curve speed control is also available as an option and automatically reduces the speed of the truck depending on the steering angle.
The picking railing has a short reach enabling the operator to stand closer to the pallet, which can offer a more comfortable picking position and efficiency.
