Precision when loading and unloading at all levels

Load Assist

Safely loading and unloading goods requires a high level of precision. Any errors here could cause the material flow to come to a standstill. Our Load Assist solutions are optimally designed to support the driver when positioning goods at the desired level in a quick and precise manner. These include visual aids and semi-automatic systems which make the loading process easier for drivers, as well as fully automated programmes. These primarily serve to prevent operating errors and protect people and goods.


Driver assistance systems and functions from STILL

 

 

iGo pilot navigation

Navigation support for the driver The system optimises the approach to the destination by stopping forks automatically at the horizontal and vertical target position. The positioning is worked out by means of distance measuring and comparison with the current position (by RFID transponders or barcodes). OptiSpeed 4.0 differentiates between loading, unloading and order picking at the target position, and adjusts the lifting height of the fork automatically.

Easy to use: manual input of the storage location or retrieval from the warehouse management system; operation at just a push of the drive lever.

High productivity: the truck takes the optimal route to its destination – regardless of the operator’s experience and knowledge.

High precision: the truck moves to the exact position of the pallet – fork movements outside the target are not possible, thus avoiding incorrect storage and retrieval.

 

Active Load Stabilisation (ALS)

No wobble here

The FM-X is always more than just a fork ahead of the rest. Thanks to Active Load Stabilising (ALS) you can be dealing with the next goods transport while others have to wait for the mask to stop vibrating. An automatic equalising pulse provides a fast and effective way of stopping the vibrations from occurring at great heights, reducing the waiting time at the shelf by up to 80%. The result is a significant increase in turnaround speed.

The system is available as an option for the models FM-X 14, FM-X 17, FM-X 20 and FM-X 25 from a lift height of 3000 mm, and included as standard in masts with a height of at least 3700 mm.

Active Load Stabilisation is only suitable for fixed masts.

 

OptiSpeed 3.4 (ALS – Active Load Stabilisation for VNA trucks)

Unique around the world: active load stabilisation in narrow aisle operations

Save time during storage and retrieval: heavy loads cause shaking in the MX-X lift heights. This results in a waiting period until the shaking subsides. The optional ASL counteracts this with additional lifting to reduce the shaking and waiting time. It makes work considerably more pleasant and increases the handling capacity by up to 5%. The system enables quick and safe transport movements which are optimally adapted to the lift height and load.

 

Dynamic Load Control (DLC 1&2)

Lifting movements that adapt to the load? Stable idea!

Whether it's an inexperienced operator, careless movements or a particularly heavy load - there are various reasons for abrupt movements of the lifting hydraulics, which can quickly lead to goods breakage or even personal or vehicle damage. Dynamic Load Control brings calm to the mast. Feel how the assistance system makes load handling better and smoother. It detects the current load as well as the current lift height and automatically adjusts the speed of the lifting hydraulics before anything falters. In the second of two expansion stages, Dynamic Load Control also takes the load's center of gravity into account. In this way, it increases stability and prevents the vehicle from tipping forward - even with small weights and large load centers. The graphic stability index also shows you at a glance how stable the vehicle is on the ground with the current load and lifting height.

 

Dynamic Load Control (DLC 3)

You will come to appreciate the optimum performance

Safe and precise load handling subject to the load lift height

Dynamic Load Control was developed to make work easier for operators of the STILL EXV and FXV high lift pallet trucks. The smart assistance system is able to estimate load capacities and weights with a high degree of precision. It is available in various extension levels. Via the display on the control unit, the maximum extension level DLC 3 shows the operator the current load weight, the maximum possible lift height with this weight and the current lift height. The latter is measured using an ultrasonic sensor. As soon as the user approaches the maximum lift height, it emits a warning signal. The lift process switches off automatically before the maximum lift is exceeded.
