Best of Industry Award

EKX 516 wins renowned industry award

Our EKX 516 has been awarded with the Best of Industry Award in the category material flow. This is already the third award in 2017 for our narrow-aisle truck, after winning the iF Design Award and the IFOY Award. The long-established Vogel Business Media publishing group only honors those solutions that have already won an industry prize or are outstandingly successful in the market. After a sophisticated selection procedure to determine the nominees, an independent expert jury made up of researchers and practitioners as well as readers of “MM MaschinenMarkt” picks the winners in ten categories.

Armin Holzner, Head of Logistics Systems Technic at Jungheinrich Logistics Systems GmbH: “We are thrilled to have won the Best of Industry Award for the second time in a row. The award for our EKX 516 confirms the first-class and consistent development of our work as well as our position as a solution provider. The result of the online voting also proves that this a highly innovative product among the users“

Due to the IFOY Award 2016, the EKX 516 qualified for the participation. With its new drive technology, the state-of-the-art control technology and lightweight construction, the truck constitute a quantum leap in terms of energy efficiency the EKX scores with the lowest energy consumption in its class.

In addition, the high-rack stacker can handle a loading capacity of up to 1,600 kilograms - which is 100 kilograms more than the norm in this segment. The maximum lifting height is 17.5 meters. In addition, there is an innovative system for vibration damping: the patented world novelty on the market of high-rack stackers enables a higher throughput performance, as well as greater safety and better driving characteristics even on uneven surfaces.

Its innovative operating system also creates the perfect workplace for the driver. Further, with our 2Shifts1Charge guarantee you will be able to work two shifts with only one battery charge. The maximum efficiency level can be reached through the combination of our EKX with the warehouseNAVIGATION.
