TAWI’s Mobile Order Picker (MOP) is indeed mobile and can be picked up with any kind of forklift or pallet jack, allowing operators to use it wherever they need to lift something. With its adjustable tower height operators can reach into pack racks or other low headroom areas giving them the greatest possible benefit in any kind of lifting operation.
“The MOP removes 100 percent of the weight of the products that the operators currently lifts, and its ergonomic and user-friendly controls allows operators to move at speed and keep up with their day to day tasks,” said Peter Wood, global segments sales manager, ergonomic handling division, Piab. “With TAWI’s MOP, which is a single operator lifting aid, two persons pick teams can now be reduced to one, allowing companies to manage their staff and shifts more efficiently.”
TAWI’s MOP is a unique solution for mobile material handling and order picking from pallet racks. Operators can simply pick it up with any kind of forklift or truck and drive it wherever they need it to go. It is equipped with a vacuum lifter mounted on an articulating jib arm. Various vacuum lifter models can be used depending on the lifting capacity needed, and the jib arm can handle up to 80 kilograms loads.
The articulating arm offers a great range of motion with a 4-meter diameter working area. Electronically driven height adjustment allows the unit to easily adapt to different lifting heights and height limitations. A 24 VDC 180Ah battery keeps it moving, while a user-friendly on-board panel makes it particularly easy to operate.
The MOP is ready to start picking goods with the push of a button, while completely safe during transport, as a safety lock holds the jib arm in place. At the push of a button the integrated vacuum pump starts working and support legs are automatically activated, ensuring safe and stable lifting. Starting the pump also automatically releases the safety lock on the jib arm.
