MasterMover Introduces LogisticsMover to Support Safe & Efficient Material Handling
MasterMover, the award-winning manufacturer of electric tug solutions, has announced the latest addition to its growing product portfolio with the introduction of the LogisticsMover (LM100) as part of its SmartMover range.
With a range of customers in the logistics space and the need to ensure that goods and materials are moved safely, MasterMover has designed the LogisticsMover specifically for the needs of the logistics industry to move cages and trolleys where space, people and merchandise work closely together. It has the capability to move loads up to 1,000kg.
In addition, the LogisticsMover is also designed to move loads on ground with a gradient of up to 30% up or down, giving operators control when operating in environments that are not flat. When moving materials manually, gradients create risk to the operator and load, adding strain and the danger of uncontrolled movement.
As with other MasterMover electric tugs, the LogisticsMover is packed with safety features to ensure operators remain safe and risk is reduced. The machine features an emergency stop button in addition to simple speed controls. The machine cannot be moved without operator engagement with the controls. A safety light can also be fitted as an option.
The LogisticsMover has a cable locking mechanism for securely attaching to loads. For an upgraded hydraulically secured option, the SM100+ and SM200+ have this additional feature.
“Within logistics, staff are often asked to move materials within warehouses or depots, into stores or into customer premises. Logistics companies are naturally focused on safety and employee well-being, and the LogisticsMover is designed with that in mind to provide the right tool to people moving often high-value items that, if moved in a more manual fashion, would put operators under strain and increase risk,” said Andy Owen, Director and Partner at MasterMover.
“Logistics companies are under an ever-increasing pressure to drive efficiency, given changing customer demands and challenging market conditions in an age of increasing costs. The LogisticsMover offers that efficiency by ensuring loads can be moved easily and safely and with great manoeuvrability, reducing the risk of damage to loads and premises and keeping operators safe.”
