STILL Forklifts are nominated in all four categories at the coveted International Forklift of The Year Awards!!
Having won awards at a number of previous ceremonies including the overall International Forklift of the Year Award for the STILL RX70 Hybrid, we are pleased to announce that STILL Forklifts have been nominated in each of the four categories this year.
- The STILL RX 20 has been nominated for International Forklift of the year in the main category “Counterbalanced Trucks up to 3.5 t”.
- The STILL RX 60-80 has been nominated in the category “Counterbalanced Trucks 3.5 t and above”.
- The STILL FM-X Reach Truck has been nominated in the “Warehouse Trucks” category.
- The complete warehousing solution designed for Kuraray Trosifol has been nominated in the Intralogistics Solutions Category
The STILL RX 20, with a load capacity of 1.4 t to 2.0 t, has been nominated for International Forklift of the year in the main category “Counterbalanced Trucks up to 3.5 t”. This electric truck, which was revised and improved in 2014, scores points mainly through outstanding energy efficiency combined with high goods handling performance and proven ergonomics. With top speeds up to 20 km/h, optimised ramp climbing ability and hydraulic speeds up to 0.44 m/s with a 2.0 t load, it’s a true all-round talent for indoor and outdoor use, which is why it’s the best-selling forklift in the entire RX model series, with more than 50,000 trucks sold
The STILL RX 60-80, for loads up to 8.0 t, has been nominated in the category “Counterbalanced Trucks 3.5 t and above”. The clean, compact power pack is the STILL Company’s most powerful electric truck. Thanks to its compact construction, ergonomic operating concept and unobstructed view, the 80 V truck is easy to handle and extremely manoeuvrable. It also reaches top speeds up to 17 km/h and is characterised by low operating costs, quiet functioning and high working performance with precise hydraulics.
STILL entered the running in the “Warehouse Trucks” category with its new generation of reach trucks, the FM-X, with a load capacity of 1.0 t to 2.5 t. This machine, already honoured with the Red Dot Award 2014, has set new standards through Active Load Stabilisation (ALS) of the mast. This uses a balancing pulse to quickly and effectively stop the oscillations that occur at large lift heights. Other highlights include the integral ergonomics concept, large remaining load-bearing capacity of 1.0 t at a lift height of 13 m and higher driving and lifting speeds with a longer battery run time.
Finally, for the Intralogistics Solutions Category, the complete warehousing solution designed for Kuraray Trosifol in Troisdorf near Cologne will be assessed based on its innovation together with its benefit to the customer and marketability. This system solution for an automatic raw materials warehouse for 24-hour production supply, developed by STILL for the plastic film manufacturer Kuraray Trosifol and implemented in only 9 weeks, has been nominated in the “Intralogistics Solutions” category. Among other things, the concept includes a highly compact channel storage system with 3,300 storage bays for pallets with Big Bags, seven STILL PalletShuttles, three automated FM-X reach trucks, two RX 60 electric trucks, a material flow computer and a master warehouse control computer. This involves the first-ever communication between the semi-automatic PalletShuttles and the automated FM-X reach trucks to bring raw materials to the right production supply station at the right time.
