Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas has launched the Jungheinrich EKX 516ka / 516a Automated High-Rack Stacker for high-density storage and very narrow aisle operations. It features a fully automated, full-pallet storage and retrieval system and 24/7 operation.
The field-tested wire guidance in combination with RFID transponders ensures precise positioning at the storage location as well as automatic aisle changes. It has the option of automation in stages (manual, semi-autonomous and full autonomous operation).
The EKX is specifically designed for very narrow aisle operations, with a compact design and 180 degree swiveling forks, allowing it to maneuver in aisles as narrow as 68". Its lift capacity of 3,500 pounds and lift height up to 511 inches make it suitable for high-density storage.
