Combilift USA recently unveiled the latest addition to its product portfolio, the new Aisle Master-OP (AME-OP). The stand-on electric powered model combines the advantages of a narrow aisle articulated forklift and an order picker for versatile operation in warehousing applications, the company says. Beverage plants already had been using the earlier iteration of the Aisle Master for space saving, storage and efficiency in their warehouse. The AME-OP was redeveloped based on customer feedback to meet the ever-growing demand for order picking customized orders. The main feature of the new unit is the patented step-through operator compartment. At just 11 inches, the low floor height enables convenient, single step access from both sides of the truck, which speeds up order picking compared with the operator having to get on and off from a seated position. The AME-OP truck has all the key advantages of the conventional Aisle Master such as use in an indoor/outdoor setting for loading/offloading and for stock replenishment at other times during shifts when order picking is complete. The forklift is available in a number of variants, with lift capacities of as much as 3,300-6,000 pounds, lift heights as high as 39 feet and can operate in aisles as narrow as 72 inches. The versatile AME-OP can be used in multiple applications, including narrow aisle operation, truck to rack handling, bulk picking and item order picking.
