Yale Nabs Design Award for Fully Integrated Lithium-ion Forklift
Yale Materials Handling Corporation announces its three-wheel integrated lithium-ion forklift, the ERP040VTL, is the recipient of a 2022 GOOD DESIGN Award. Yale engineered this lift truck around a fully integrated lithium-ion battery pack, to optimize both form and function. Designing the truck with an integrated lithium-ion battery in mind not only allows the ERP040VTL to realize the advantages of this advanced electric power source – like zero emissions, no battery maintenance, full power until depletion and fast charging – it also delivers key productivity benefits:
- Ergonomics: An open-space design increases operator freedom to position feet and makes for easy entry and exit, maximizing comfort and convenience to help propel productivity; and
- Stability: A repositioned center of gravity enhances drive quality and improves truck handling in corners for greater operator confidence and performance.
Overall, the truck’s ergonomic design and power features can help increase productivity by up to 5 percent, based on VDI 2198, a standard for comparing technical details of industrial trucks.
