Crown Equipment Corporation, one of the world's largest material handling companies, today announced the new Crown MPC 3000 Series order picker. Combining the versatility of a counterbalance forklift and a pallet truck, the MPC Series features a high-lift mast that provides operators the flexibility to order pick, stack, replenish and transport pallets with the use of one lift truck.
The Crown MPC Series can perform across a variety of applications - ranging from unloading at the dock to transport and put-away - which helps to save time and increase throughput. Operators can raise and lower the forks as they build pallets at a comfortable height, minimizing back strain and saving time. Overhead visibility is improved thanks to an overhead guard design providing a better view for operators who need to position forks and loads at height. Sensors monitor steer wheel angle, fork height and load weight to adjust speed and acceleration for smooth cross-docking and long-distance transport.
The MPC Series was originally engineered and tested at Crown's European Headquarters in Feldkirchen, Germany, and has been well-received by customers in the region.
