Cargotec's intermodal handling machines are utilized all around the globe. An intermodal terminal by definition, is a link between roads and railways or railways and seaports. The company Cargotech offers innovative solutions, whether there is a need for equipment to handle trailers, swap bodies or containers.
Among the most common machinery utilized in intermodal operations are reach stackers. This is due to their extreme speed and overall flexibility. One or two rail tracks can be accessed from the side. Additionally, lift trucks which have extended gantry spreaders are able to be utilized for accessing the first rail.
RTG cranes are great for work on handling trailers, containers, and on railcars. This machine could roughly 4 trail tracks simultaneously. In addition, containers could be stored at the side of the rail tracks. When many railcars are handled systematically, RTG cranes are most effective.
RMG cranes are normally utilized in huge rail operations chosen since several tracks are able to be covered simultaneously. Road traffic has the option of being separated easily using cantilevered RMG cranes for more efficiency.
Straddle carriers can be used on railcars in handling containers. In order for this operation to be successful, an on-dock rail yard must be situated near the main container yard in order for things to remain economical.
Reach stackers are among the best and most flexible solutions for handling containers on medium and small sized ports and for multi-purpose terminals. Reach stacker technology which provides excellent performance advantages whilst lessening overall lifecycle costs is the most excellent kind of investment.
Among the best reach stackers ever built are the Cargotec Kalmar DRF models. They are among the most innovative and carry a solid reputation in the business, being known for their great performance. They have a computer control system which helps prevent gearbox and engine damage as well as lessening the fuel use. These models provide smooth drive controls and automatic gear shift, along with low emission levels. They are available in a variety of options and a range of models. Combinations comprise combi-lift and top-lift configurations.
