Easy to drive, digital control Flexi ACiON VNA truck leads the marketMember News
Narrow Aisle Ltd has announced the introduction of new digital electric motor technology across its Flexi range of battery-powered VNA warehouse reach trucks.
With all drive, hydraulic and power-steering functions controlled digitally, the trucks in the Flexi ACiON battery power collection are described as a ‘tour de force’ in articulated lift truck technology.
“The development of digital multiplex control systems for our battery powered trucks’ key functions delivers a more integrated performance, and results in greater reliability and higher productivity combined with significantly reduced operating and maintenance costs,” says Narrow Aisle Ltd.’s managing director, John Maguire.
Full digital control means that all models are ultra-energy efficient: regenerative energy produced every time the truck’s mast is raised or lowered, as well as during forward and reverse travel and by the movement of the steering wheel, feeds back to the battery to maximise the time the truck can perform for between battery changes or charges.
But it is not just ‘under the bonnet’ where enhancements have been made: when developing the new Flexi ACiON electric range, Narrow Aisle’s design team sought to produce the ultimate ‘easy to drive’ driver-friendly articulated reach truck on the market.
Models in Narrow Aisle’s Flexi ACiON range can operate safely and efficiently in aisles measuring from just 1.6 metres wide and can lift loads weighing up to 2.5 kg to heights of over 14 metres.
John Maguire says: “The electric drive technology at the heart of our Flexi ACiON range builds on the design strengths that have established the Flexi as the world’s best-selling articulated forklift truck for nearly 30 years. But, we believe, we have taken the Flexi range to a new level of performance and efficiency that is unsurpassed in our sector.”
