Jungheinrich Lift Truck Idol Show held at the Transport Logistic China 2012

The 5th International Exhibition for Logistics, Telematics and Transport (Transport Logistic China 2012) held from June 5 to 7, 2012 was rounded off successfully at Shanghai New International Expo Centre.

As the sponsor of the “Forklift Idol” show at its venue in the exhibition, Jungheinrich Lift Truck (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. also displayed 10 of its latest electric forklifts.
In addition to a spectacular driving demonstration put on by beautiful Jungheinrich operators, Jungheinrich also arranged for test driving for the audience under the guidance of a trained operator. The truck models for the test drive included the three most commonly-used forklifts in Jungheinrich warehouse systems: the electric counterbalance truck EFG 216, reach truck ETV 214 and electric pedestrian stacker EJC 112.

It is worth mentioning that the Jungheinrich 2011 reach truck ETV 214 is designed according to the principles of ergonomics. The seats, steering wheel, angles of the seat back, and even the support radian of the seat back are all adjustable. The suspended seats are highly stretchable with better a vibration damping effect and provide max protection of the driver’s spine. The driver may rest its right hand, used to control the hydraulic pressure, comfortably on the cambered handrail. The discrete operating grip that controls the lifting, mast tilt, upright side-shift, and the Can-bus system installed in the forklift makes the operation of the truck more sensitive and simple. The 180o and 360o steering modes may be switched with the press of a button. The driver can clearly see the current mode from the Lisa-display and choose one of the three driving modes according to working conditions. The forklift has the best performance under the enhanced mode and operates for longer under the power saving mode. The driving, lifting, and steering motor of the truck all use three-phase alternators with robust power output and lower power consumption (10% lower than that of similar products on the market). The truck can lift goods to a max height of 10.7m and be fully loaded at the height of 8.7m. It is the best choice for a high rack warehouse system.

During the test drive at the exhibition, the audience showed great interest in the outstanding performance and sensitive operation of Jungheinrich lift trucks and were deeply impressed by its beautiful yellow appearance. They took test drives on the trucks and posed for a photo with each truck one after another. The exhibition not only attracted the attendance of the old and new customers of the company from Jingdong Mall and Sinotrans but also Dr. Andreas Scheuer, Parliamentary State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development in Germany and Mr. Zhou Yupeng, Former Deputy Mayor of Shanghai and Chairman of Modern Service Industry Federation, who visited the exhibition hall of Jungheinrich and had a test drive on the forklifts themselves.

In the final of the “Forklift Idol” show held on Jun. 7, under the guidance of the Jungheinrich engineers, the audience from diverse backgrounds and most having little to no experience operating forklifts were given the chance to try.. They learned skills for pallet transportation and pallet stacking, and could pick up goods accurately with the pallet forks. They had had a soft touch with the excellent performance, safety and humanized design of the Jungheinrich Lift Truckfrom Germany. Finally, 4 audiences passed the three rounds of tests, namely the pallet transportation, pyramid adventure, and Open Sesame and became the final winners of the show. They were awarded with the exquisitely-made 1:25 models of Jungheinrich Lift Truck as the trophies for their performances in the show.
