Yale wins the FLTA Award for Ergonomics

On March 4th 2017, the materials handling industry’s most accomplished movers and shakers gathered at Telford’s International Centre to discover who would be taking home its most prestigious honour: an FLTA Award for Excellence.

The FLTA Award for Ergonomics was taken by Yale MPT Series rider pallet truck. It stands as the year’s best example of the drive to keep fork lift truck operators comfortable and safe, while achieving the highest levels of productivity and efficiency.

From the low step height for easier on-off-access, to the large floor space and clear operator views, all aspects of the Yale MPT trucks have been designed with good ergonomics as a key design driver. A unique adaptive seat offers sit, lean and stand functionality at the touch of a button, giving operators full freedom of movement, whether for short or long transfers, and an easily operated butterfly switch gives control of direction and speed.

ED Design has been working as Hyster-Yale’s industrial design partner of choice for over a decade. Yale MPT Series trucks is one of the latest fruits of the co-operation.

Asiakasta tarkasti kuuntelemalla ja havainnoimalla, ja tätä kautta aivan uudenlaisten oivallusten syntyessä, on sinunkin yritykselläsi mahdollisuus luoda aivan uutta ja ottaa edistysaskeleita omalla toimialallanne.
