International Vehicle Loader and Conveyor Manufacturer, SOVEX launched their new telescopic boom, the compact TL4, at LogiMAT in Stuttgart this month. LogiMAT welcomed over 43,000 attendees this year and SOVEX received interest from parcel handling companies across Germany.
The innovative vehicle loader is part of a conveying solution which was designed to meet the demands of the world’s largest courier company. German-based Deutsche Post DHL challenged the materials handling specialist to manufacture a cutting edge, space-saving parcel handling solution which led to a multi-million pound order.
The compact TL4 can move bi-directional away from the raised dock, using surface mounted rails and a specially designed guidance system, allowing parcel handlers to use pallet trucks as and when required - freeing up vital floor space.
One of SOVEX’s smaller telescopic booms, it has a closed footprint of 4.2m along with 4 extending telescopic sections allowing an additional extended length of 10.4m.
It has many additional benefits, as with the SOVEX range of machines, which come as standard such as LED lighting, anti-collision strip on the front of the boom and underside covers. A foldable gallows lighting addition allows full illumination when extending into trailers or sea containers.
All key components on SOVEX vehicle loaders are readily accessible reducing service time and downtime.
The SOVEX team will ship the compact TL4 with them to CeMAT later on this month. The unique telescopic boom extends into any type of trailer and container – and drastically reduces the time and manpower required to load and unload products.
Visit SOVEX at CeMAT on 31st May-3rd June on stand H25, Hall 027 in Hannover.
