Cargotec will show glimpses of future of load handling in their Future Dome at the IAA Exhibition in Hannover, Germany. The audience can take a guided tour to the Dome and see a visionary show which blends the present and the future of load handling.
"Cargotec is the pioneering company that invented modern load handling equipment," says Thomas Koskimaa, Area Director Central Europe, Cargotec Germany GmbH. "The visitors of Future Dome will see that we are also the future of load handling. Our products generate the best customer value in terms of efficiency and safety, while being environmentally friendly. As an example, in IAA we will preview the first electronic forklift in the market, the Hiab Moffett E2."
In all, Cargotec presents in IAA innovative products that are world-class in regards to efficiency, sustainability and energy consumption. The other products that will be presented at the exhibition are Hiab XS 544, Hiab Multilift XR18S ProFuture TM, Hiab cabin 912 and TimberTronics control system.
Hiab Moffett E-Generation Truck-mounted forklift - this new generation truck mounted forklift is clean, quiet, strong and durable. It will enhance operating efficiency with energy and fuel savings and will accommodate deliveries in areas that are noise and emissions sensitive. The new E-Generation has undergone strict internal testing and evaluation as set by Cargotec and has been certified as a Pro Future(TM) model. The Hiab Moffett E-Generation will be launched in the early 2013.
Hiab XS 544 is our latest loader crane in the heavy duty segment, which can be previewed during the IAA exhibition. The crane has unique performance features, such as a new improved boom system that minimizes deflection as well as improved sequence cylinders and endless slewing. The crane provides the customer numerous advantages: It increases efficiency, minimises maintenance and operating costs and provides a quick return on investment. The Hiab XS 544 will be launched at the end of 2012.
Hiab Multilift XR18S ProFutureTM - a state-of-the-art hooklift that contributes to operating efficiency by cutting the operation time to one-third. This is without increasing engine RPM, which minimizes fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and noise. The Hiab Multilift XR18S ProFuture TM was launched in November 2011 and has already been warmly received by the market.
Hiab cabin C912 & TimberTronics control system - the new, more spacious version of Hiab cabin C912 enhances efficiency of loading processes. It has maximally wide view and improved user comfort that quicken the loading procedures significantly. Also a new option to the mechanical control system is exhibited: The new electronic TimberTronics control system features integrated weighing and faster troubleshooting as well as use of customised operator profiles.
