David Berghorn, Dematic Chief Technology Officer, stated, “Dematic is excited about this new alliance with Crown, combining our talents to deliver state-of-the-art technology solutions that will provide a substantial return on investment for our customers. Our recent acquisition of HK Systems and its advanced AGV technology, made this fully integrated, single provider solution possible.” Berghorn continued, “LaserTrucks+, the first of our combined efforts, is an innovative and cost-effective solution specifically addressing efficient mixed case order fulfillment.”
Tim Quellhorst, Senior Vice President, Crown Equipment, added, “One of the most common themes we hear from our customers is a desire to utilize technology to make their warehouses more productive. We believe emerging technologies will provide opportunities for our customers who want to implement scalable elements of material handling automation. Our alliance with Dematic is another step in this direction for Crown that helps us fill an existing gap in the global marketplace with a fully integrated pallet truck system for order picking. As some facilities move toward automation, the LaserTrucks+ offering from Dematic is a viable solution that leverages one of our most technologically advanced lift trucks.”
The LaserTruck+ solution, featuring the Crown PC 4500 Series, will be on display at ProMat in Dematic Booth 3603.
