In the midst of a bustling booth at the Modex 2018 trade show, Raymond Corp. was demoing its new high-capacity reach truck, which goes higher than any other reach truck currently in the market, according to the company. The reach truck responds to a growing industry trend, as companies are increasingly building their warehouses and distributions centers up instead of out in an effort to make more efficient use of their space.
The truck can reach up to 542 inches and can carry loads up to 4,500 pounds. It also is more productive and lifts faster than Raymond's existing reach trucks, the vendor said.
The new reach truck is equipped with the Raymond Vantage Point system, which helps operators more accurately position the forks at great lift heights. The camera, which is positioned between the forks, has a high dynamic range (HDR) image sensor, which helps it function in both low and high light. The camera is wired to a display that provides the operator with intelligence and telematics.
Raymond was also displaying its virtual reality training simulator and its Pick2Pallet LED light system for a low-level order picker, which is a finalist for an MHI Innovation Award. The Pick2Pallet incorporates pick-to-light technology onto the forks of the order picker in order to help operators to pick multiple orders onto the same picker at the same time. An LED light on the fork illuminates under the correct pallet for the product being picked.
