Combilift launches the first purpose-built order picker designed for long loads

Combilift, the material handling solutions provider, has launched the first purpose-built order picker.
The Combi-OP is the first purpose-built order picker on the worldwide market for long products.
Previously customers have had to modify traditional order pickers to cope with the specific demands of long loads. The Combi-OP now guarantees much more efficient and non-compromised operation for easy picking of long profiles in, for example, steel service centres.
This man-up truck features a long platform to enable the operator to access long products stored at height. It is fitted with guide rollers to enable it to operate in existing guided narrow aisles of just 1.4m - the same width as those needed for Combilift's GT truck. It enables operators to easily and safely hand pick orders for customers from the roomy elevated platform and it has a capacity of 450 kg. Its overhead guard, light anti-slip floor, self-closing platform gate and guard rails guarantee utmost safety, as does the travel speed and steering angle which automatically adjusts according to lift heights
Features:
-Standing Operator Over-Head Guard
-Multi-function steering/function control
-Dual speed control
-Operator display
-Guide rollers
-AC electric steering
-AC motor technology
The Combi-OP was launched during the official opening of the new Combilift Global Headquarters. Built at a cost of €50 million, the new 46,500 sq. m (500,000 sq.ft) Global Headquarters and new manufacturing facility will allow Combilift to double production.
